A small village in the bosom of nature, Tikarpada is strategically situated by the side of "Satakosia Gorge". The meandering Mahanadi flowing closely amidst bountiful hills, forms here the mightiest gorge of India, twenty-two km long. It is acclaimed as one of the World's most enchanting spot. The place is ideal for boating, angling and adventure. The forests and hills around the village have varieties of fauna to fascinate the visitors. A Gharial Crocodile Sanctuary, setup here, has enhanced the importance of the place.
It is connected with a good motorable road around 60 km from Angul which branches off the Cuttack-Sambalpur road at Badakera, 14 km west of Angul.
