May I suggest that you please go through this post in some other forum, regarding Kuldiha? It is informative and is written by a long time friend of mine.

Till February 2013 Jhorachua FRH was operational. We visited the place then. The FRH is in the core area of the forest and had two rooms. This place is frequently visited by wild elephants and sloth bears. We also spotted a wild dog in Kuldiha which is very much rare in that forest.
