Situated on the banks of the rivers Hasdo and Ahiran, Korba city is one of the most important districts of Chhattisgarh

Situated on the banks of the rivers Hasdo and Ahiran, Korba city is one of the most important districts of Chhattisgarh. Korba is a fascinating tribal country of Chhattisgarh and the district is homeland of the famous Korwa tribes. Most of the tribes live in the thickly forested hills and so are untouched by the modern culture, completely retaining their cultural traditions. Korba is famous for its Aluminium Plant and the place is quite rich in mineral and forest wealth. Korba is also known for its amazing wildlife population. With so much to offer, Korba is a must visit on your Chhattisgarh Tour.

The major tourist attractions of Korba include Pali - a small village at 58 km from Korba City, famous for a big and beautiful lake and remains of ancient temples including the ancient Shiva Temple. Kanki - at a distance of about 20 km is famous for Shiva Temple, which is popularly known as Kankeshwar Mahadev Temple. Lafagarh - at a distance of about 19 km has one of the strongest natural forts of India with three entrances, having beautifully decorated pillars and statues. Sitamani Temples & Caves are other major attraction near Korba having three rock-cut caves with one housing ancient idols of Rama, Sita and Laxman. The 55 ft high Kendai Waterfall at Tiger Point (named so as tigers and other wild animals can easily be seen here) and Bango Dam - a famous picnic spot are a must visit on your Korba Tour.
