Chandaka Elephant Sanctuary is a wildlife sanctuary attached to the Bhubaneshwar region. The sanctuary is located on the upper reaches of Khurda in the Eastern Ghats Biological Zone.
It was designated as an elephant reserve in December 1982.
There are several watchtowers for the visitors to watch the wildlife.
The Kochilaberana, Pitagadia and Charichhak watch towers are excellent for bird and animal observation.
There are rest houses at Kumarkhunti and Ambillo where one can rest for the night.
There are two reservoirs, Deras Dam and Jhumka Dam, located within the reserve.
The cottages near the Deras Dam offer a beautiful view of the Chandaka Reserve and a chance to spot wildlife.
