Satkosia Wildlife Sanctuary is located at Tikarpada of Angul District in Orissa. Satkosia got its name from sat (seven) and Kosh (two miles) meaning 14 miles or 22 km long. Satkosia Gorge is one of most captivating spots in the country. It is the congregation point of Chota Nagpur plateau forests, dry deciduous forests and moist peninsular sal forests, and is abundant with tiger, leopard, elephant, spotted deer, chousingha, and sloth bear. The sanctuary shelters a variety of resident and migratory birds and different species of reptiles. A research and conservation unit was established at Tikarpada, close to the gorge.
