about chilika lake

The journey from Puri to Chilka Lake will itself charm you as it brings alive the rustic life of Orissa. Known as the largest brackish water lake in Asia, it is the largest wintering ground for migratory birds on the Indian sub-continent, housing various rare species of birds. Apart from various domestic birds, the lake also habitats many migratory birds from Iran, Afghanistan, Iraq and the Himalayas. The birds come to the Chilka Lake in between October and March, best time to visit being during the winter season.

Rich in waterbirds and other aquatic creatures as well, the major attraction of this place is the Irrawaddy Dolphin that one can see swimming in the waters of the lake. You can also see the famous Chilika Dolphins in Satapada (50 km from Puri), which is the junction of Chilika Lake and Bay of Bengal.

The lake is so big that when i was travelling via train along the banks it took around 10minutes to completely cross it. Boating is fun in this lake in the evening. A lot of food vendors are also present which makes eating also possible.
