Chilka, Orissa is famous for its lake, the largest lagoon in India and the second largest lagoon in the World. Known worldwide for its rich bio-diversity, there is something immensely soothing and magical about Chilika. The brackish water lagoon is a vast expanse of blue water, dotted by low undulating hills, with the loud chirping of birds and the gentle splash of water combining to create a dreamy effect. The vastness in itself is quite dreamy; Chilika is said to be the largest inland brackish water body in Asia, spreading over 1,165 sq km during the monsoon (during the dry months it shrinks to about 790 sq km).
The largest lagoon in India, is world famous for its rich bio-diversity. An agency, Chilika Development Authority (CDA) has been set up by the Government and is responsible to work towards the conservation of bio-diversity in Chilka. The ecological richness of the lake is of great value. 

Declared a Ramsar Wetland Site of International Importance in 1981, and much visited for birds and dolphins, Chilika also offers great natural beauty. Watch the sun rise or set as you cruise on the blue waters, listen to birdcalls at daybreak and gaze at the fishing boats with their sails billowing in the wind. And if you happen to hear snatches of a boatman’s song that comes floating along with the breeze, the melody is sure to echo in your mind for long.
