Nature’s exquisite exposition with varied bounties in the surroundings of the Sidhamulla at the distance of 25 KMs, away from Khandapada in the district of Nayagarh in the state of Odisha belies the relative insignificance of the place. The crystal blue waters of Mahanadi, the sprawling sands the fishing boats dotting the extensive water surface, the divining birds, the splendid hills and hillocks bordering the flanks and the greenery around inspire a creative visitor to sing an ode of the nature. The gentle breeze blowing across the rippled water makes the climate pleasant and thus gladdens the visitors. The splendidness of these diverse items of nature drive compellingly for setting up camps of retreat so that the dissonance of this boundless beauty inherent in the surroundings of Sidhamulla can be held harmoniously by a zealous nature lover and enthusiastic holidayers. Hence an ecotourism site has been proposed at a relatively higher attitude which is flattened between Mahukana Mundia and Malati Mundia. The prevailing ambience at the site open the vista for further improvement as an all time tourist destination without interference with nature. The place has also the added advantage of proximity of several other ecosystems, which are well protected and preserved. The rich biodiversity of Hanumantia, Dengabahada, Barakhola, Mainsibndha & Manivadra Reserve Forests contribute to the identification of the place as a hub of ecotourism.
