Similipal National Park and sanctuary in Odisha has been closed for entry of tourists from today following the onset of monsoon. The entry of visitors is prohibited from mid June till the end of October every year during the rainy season as road connectivity to various locations inside the famous sanctuary gets disrupted, said a senior official of Similipal Tiger Reserve (STR). Considered as a hot tourist destination of North Odisha, the sanctuary will reopen from the first week of November, he said.
