Odisha is an Indian state of huge diversity based on the eastern horizon. It’s the home to a handful number of tribes; all are distinct in themselves but connected through a string of tribal tourism in Odisha.

Many people opine that the development of ecotourism can facilitate the development of villages – which in turn incorporates the development in the tribal tourism. Perhaps it’s a true perception in many aspects that this small development can lead to the development of the inhabitants – who are major numbers of tribal people in Odisha.

Therefore, a perfectly chalked out layout for the promotion of eco-tourism, accompanied with the hospitality provided to the visitors will ensure a fully developed tribal tourism in Odisha.
