Taptapani is well-known for its sulfur-rich spring water. The next town is Mohana, which is located in the Gajapati district and is about 16 kilometers distant. That is also implied by the name “Taptapani.” The words “tapta” and “pani” signify “hot” and “water,” respectively.
The medicinal benefits of the hot water from Taptapani’s natural spring can be enjoyed by bathing in the pond made next to the spring. The hot spring is located at the crest of a hill on the eastern side of the Eastern Ghat, surrounded by a beautiful green forest with a diverse range of flora and wildlife. Taptapani’s indigenous cultures and gorgeous landscape are also popular draws. A deer park is also managed by the forest service.
Taptapani has easy access to major cities in Odisha, including Bhubaneswar, Berhampur, Cuttack, Jeypore, Rayagada, and Malkangiri. Berhampur Railway Station, located on the Howrah-Chennai mainline, is the nearest railway station.
Tourists can only stay at the expansive Panthanivas in Taptapani. The two AC suites share a balcony and include a large bedroom, dressing area, and bathroom with a little swimming pool fed by the hot springs’ warm water. The villas look out over a lush valley of varying colors of green. Anyone can sit here for hours at a time. The Dining Hall is advantageously located between two mountain fold crests. The kanduni devi temple is situated on the edge of an underground hot spring. From there, two smaller tanks, one for men and one for women, provide hot water bathing facilities. A deer park is also managed by the local forest authority.
