The tribals of India offer a glimpse of the country that was and there is not a better place than Orissa to get the same as out of 437 tribes in India, Orissa alone has almost sixty two tribes. This is the reason that Itourify Travels invariably focuses on this state for this special tribal tour.


Another interesting aspect of this eight day long trip is the fact that these tribes though belonging to three linguistic divisions have lot of socio-cultural similarities between them.
