We went to Jeypore in May 2008. One of the days we visited Gupteshwar, a place in the dense forests, about 56 KM to the south of Jeypore. Road was pretty bad. But the way was scenic and enjoyable. Of course the darshan of Lord Gupteshwar finally makes you feel, the trip was well worth it. Serene Shabari which is a tributary of majestic Godavari flows calmly and the cool feel of that water is very nice.
