Distirct Profile 

Malkangiri district is almost a vast dense jungle, with a very small percentage of the population residing in the urban areas. The district is divided into two distinct physical divisions. The eastern part is covered with steep ghats, platues and valleys, sparsely inhabited by primitive tribes. The cliamate in the district is generally cold during winter and hot in summer.Relative humidity is generally high, especially in the monsoon and post-monsoon months. During the rainy season, most areas of the district become impassably swampy and heavy floods isolate it from the outer world. This district lies within the malaria prone belt. This district is one of the most underdeveloped districts. The schedule tribe population is 57.43%. The largest thwo tribes are Koya and Bhumiya. It is also home to the primitive Bondas, Porajas and Didayis.
