Chilika Lake

, Puri

It's Good
Chilika Lake, the Asia’s the biggest inland salt-water lagoon, is separated from the waters of Bay of Bengal by a narrow neck of land. The Lake extends across the three districts of Puri, Ganjam and Khordha in Orissa.

Located around 50 km from Puri, the lake is a tourist attraction with many small islands of lusting emerald green and natural beauty. There are 3 jetties to Chillika Lake, one run by Orissa Tourism Development Corporation (Rs 80 per person for 3 hour tour) and two run by private operators (Rs400 to Rs 1,300 for one to eight hours tour; do bargain)

The lake is a winter hub of many spectacular migratory birds. The view of sunset and sunrise are memorable experiences here. The sanctuary in Nalbana Island houses many different kinds of flora and fauna.

One can venture out for water sports activities, at the water sports complex at Barakul, like boating and fishing here in this lake. The fish fauna, crabs, prawns and mackerel provides nice scenery for the visitors.
