Nuapada (Odisha): Wildlife lovers can now savour many unexplored zones of Sunabeda wildlife sanctuary with the launch of bus service to the picturesque forest reserve in Odisha's Nuapada district.

The bus service has been introduced in the area to facilitate easy mobility of the forest dwellers including some primitive tribes, official sources said.

The sanctuary had been out of bounds for the tourists since 2004 following repeated Maoist attacks in the area, they said.

The bus would ply from Khariar Road upto Cherichuan gate in the sanctuary, a distance of 106 km, located on a plateau of 3000 feet above the sea level, he said.

The Western Odisha Development Council (WDC) had provided Rs 15 lakh for the purpose.
