Sunabeda Wildlife Sanctuary
Situated close to the boundary of Chhatisgarh state on the western fringe of Orissa in the newly created Nuapada region, this sanctuary covers 600 sq. km. of dry deciduous forests.
The plateau on the hill top holds a slightly undulating flat land with good edible grass. Eleven beautiful waterfalls and seasonal streams which dry out during summer leaving few profound pools of water. These are very charming attractions.
Major wildlife species are: tiger, leopard, hyena, barking deer, chital, gaur, sambar, sloth bear, varieties of birds such as hill myna, pea fowl, partridge and a number of reptilian species.
This sanctuary is measured as a perfect habitat for Barasingha (locally extinct).
