Thankx Jazzy. I have read your trip report. It's really good and informative. I planned to stay at guesthouse at Lulung, Simlipal. But presently they are closed for the tourist for night stay.[frustration]

Ok. One more thingis that the Border between Bengal & Orissa is a v shady place. The trucks are lined up for 2-3kms & you have to negotiate them & proceed. In fact I had to cross over to the wrong side of the highway to cross eventually. Because of my low GC I asked my passengers to deboard, as it was filled with craters & mud. Be careful...
