Chilika Lake, Puri

(2.7/5 based on 800+ reviews on the web)
Flowing into the Bay of Bengal, Chilika Lake remains one of the largest lagoons in the world--it's also one of India's biggest wintering grounds for migratory birds. The lake and the surrounding area not only shelter a diverse ecosystem of threatened plants and animals, but also remain an important source of sustenance for the nearby villages and fisheries. Animal lovers can spend hours spotting over 160 species of birds, and lucky--and patient--watchers have a chance to see the endangered Irrawaddy dolphin here. Make Chilika Lake a part of your Puri vacation plans using our Puri tour planner.
