Koraput Market


There’s a smaller market here every day, but it’s Koraput’s big Sunday Market that’s worth exploring. Tribespeople and local traders alike buy and sell food produce and handmade goods in the lanes around the bus stand and behind the police station; buying stuff here is a rare opportunity to interact with tribespeople on your own.
