I visited Kuldiha on 22nd Feb ‘2013. but couldn’t get chance to stay in FRH , which is deep inside the Kuldiha Forest. There is another place called Jhorachua, which also have a FRH and also within the deep jungle. Try to stay at FRHs because Wild life can be seen in abundance at night from FRHs, The day visitors have to leave FRH within 5.30 in the evening. If you wont get any room at both the FRHs then other better option is to stay at Panchalingeswar which is only 45 mins. drive from FRH . You may contact Mr. Abhijit Saha , Ph no. - 09040267539 / +918338970409 who operates tours on this area for any assistance regarding your tour plan.
Regards

A truly awesome choice !!! You all answers are open in this number Mr. Monoranjan Das # 9937332552. He is having the best accommodation ( AC ) even better than OTDC Panthaniwas ( As per the nature view is concern ) in Panchalingeswar, 20 Km from Kuldiha Gate. Be very careful, Sun will describe you the definition of Fireball in April. I am also starting my bike trip to this region tomorrow. It would be from tomorrow to coming Sunday. Devkund Waterfall 9 70 Km from Panchalingeswar ) will definitely save you from this heat. Safari in Kuldiha is quite possible from there. Staying in Kuldia Forest Guest house, I think, is not permissible now. You have to check it.

If you can move for a real adventrous tour then start your trek from Panchwalingeswar temple and end it either in Lolong or Kuldiha. Mr. das has been arranging the same since long years.

I had visited that place in 2009. we had 4 friends (2 bike's gang). We add kuldiha with extention of our chandipur trip. We managed the permission to enter the forest after 15th Jun (Official rain season of india) from the range office at nilgiri bazar. we stayed @ Jhorachua. i think this place is more beautiful than kuldiha FRH. Also we tracked to purunapani, there was a watch tower. its true april is so hot there, there was no electricity, no phone network. the basic difference of kuldiha with other forest there is nothing to fear but you will fear, because of the dens jungle and also you can walk hear, what is not possible for a national par kind of forest.

Back from a wonderful trip to Kuldiha Forest.Stayed at the Tents of FRH for two nights.It is amazing to find such a raw and pristine forest so near to Kolkata and it's also a thrilling experience to stay at the core of the jungle.The most memorable experience is the sighting of a herd of Elephants at the out-skirt of the forest from very close...dangerously close!And should also mention the cute and colourful Malabar giant Squirrels in the FRH campus.Sighted 7-10 of them .Bird activity was not very great and birding on foot in the forest is somewhat restricted for the abundance of elephants.The birds sighted or photographed are:White-rumped Shama(very common,Blue-throated blue flycatcher,Emerald Dove,Puff-throated Babbler,Brown cheeked Fulvetta,Black-naped Monarch,Greater flameback,Plum headed Parakeet,Jerdon's Leafbird,Nightjar, etc.Here are some of the photos.....

Hi Maumi,

pictures are awesome........i have been there in this year too. This forest is so natural and raw in nature that i would love to go back again and again. But is it true that Kuldiha is going to be closed for visitors from the next year ? i heard from someone related to travel agency. Now they are providing tents to stay instead of the Rooms available. They have prohibited the rooms for tourists now. And next year kuldiha will be closed for visitors to maintain ECO balance.

Do you have any such information ?

@nikon_D300.....We booked the accommodation through Manoranjan Das who told that only Tents were available for tourists.But,we noticed some other people came and stayed at the rooms probably booked directly from the Forest Office.We have not heard anything that it would be closed for tourists in future.....thanks for your appreciation of the pictures(taken by my husband).

Yes, the probability is there. From June'14 onwards it may get closed for maintaining ECO balance. But as per him (Manaranjan Das), the chances of restriction may not be there as a lot of local people depend on the tourism.
