Introducing Southwestern Odisha

As of 2012, permits are once again required for foreigners venturing into the tribal areas. The process will likely be taken care of by a government-approved tour agency, but play it safe and give yourself a good 10 days for the paperwork to play itself out. Photography and overnight stays are now strictly prohibited by law. If you are going independently, you will need to visit the district tourist officer to initiate permissions.
