The whole topography of the place provides ample scope for trekking and hiking. Interestingly Kuldiha Wildlife Sanctuary is connected to Simlipal through Sukhpada hills and Nato hills.
The 3day morning, get ready to start visit Panchalingeswar Temple. The Shivalingas are said to have been enshrined by Sita, the wife of Lord Rama during their exile. Another story holds that King Banasura worshiped the Swayambhu Lingas at this place given its beauty. A perennial stream, which is the main attraction of the area, regularly washes the Shivalingas as it flows over them. To reach to the temple one has to lie flat on the rock parallel to the stream to touch and worship the lingas inside the water stream. You need to ascend 263 stairs to reach the temple. There is a small water flow which becomes bigger in monsoon and underneath that you will find 5 rock pieces considered as “Shiva Linga” and for this reason this place is known as Panchalingeswar. After complete sightseeing transfer to the Balasore Railway station for an onward journey..
