River Budhabalanga

River Budhabalanga
The river Budhabalanga originates from the Similipal range of hills on Mayurbhanj district. It flows through the districts of Mayurbhanj and Balasore of Odisha. The river traverses a total distance of 175 kms before it finally empties into the Bay of Bengal.

It rises in the Similipal hills and plunges through Barehipani Falls, the 2nd highest waterfall in India, located in Simlipal National Park.  The Budhabalanga River along with the tributaries like Palpala, Chipat, Sone, Gangadhar, & Catra are draining & enriching a sprawling forest cover all along the banks. At least a total of 12 rivers cut across these plains which provide a wonderful habitat to a wide variety of wildlife.
