Overview of Daringbadi
Daringbadi is known as Odisha’s Kashmir, purely because of the mystic hills and the pleasant climate that prevails here all through the year. Located at an altitude of 915m above sea level Daringbadi is home to beautiful rainforests that house rare species of wild animals and birds. Due to the chill climate experienced here perennially, many tourists come here during the summer months to escape from the scorching heat waves of the sun. The coffee plantations that are found here are visual delights for the tourists. This is probably the only place in the state where the temperature dips to below zero degrees during winter seasons. During this cold weather, the dew on the grass turns into ice and transports the tourists to a completely different world altogether. All through the journey up the hill, tourists are treated with some of the most spell-bounding sceneries.
