Home to the largest Blackbuck habitat in eastern India, this little village in Odisha is a must-visit along with Mangalajodi and Chilika
Vetnai is a quaint little hamlet located in the Ganjam District of Odisha. Situated amidst the stunning blue-green hillocks of the Eastern Ghats, its valleys are home to more than 4000 Blackbucks, making it the largest singular natural habitat for Blackbucks in eastern India. The antelope species, native to India and Nepal, is mainly found in northern and western India and is not so common in the eastern parts of the country.
The local communities in Vetnai regard Blackbucks as bearers of prosperity and good fortune, and they protect them and co-exist with them in harmony.
Native to India and Nepal, Blackbucks are an antelope species that is difficult to come across anywhere else in eastern India.
