Koraput is about 500km from Bhubaneswar. The weekly markets of Koraput offer a kaleidoscopic view of various colorful tribal communities coming together. Tribals descend from their hilly abodes on the market to buy, sell, mingle and chat. Every aspect of tribal life is charming and colorful. But the place of honour is occupied by tribal dance and music. The invigorating dances set to the beat of tapping music of traditional instruments are a way of life for the tribals. In all seasons and occasions, the people of Koraput sing and dance. Koraput is decorated by forests, waterfalls, terraced valleys and darting springs which draw the nature loving people.
