Odisha is organizing an eco-retreat festival at Pentha beach next month, inviting tourists for a memorable sojourn amid pristine nature.
After the success of the 3-month-long eco-retreat festival organized near Bhitarkanika National Park last year, the Tourism Department of Odisha plans to host a similar fête in Kendrapara district, this time at Pentha beach. The Pentha eco-retreat festival is going to begin from Nov 15 and will continue for 106 days till March 1, 2022.
