Chilika Lake, Puri

2.8
#2 of 40 in Nature in Odisha
Water Body Nature / Park
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.

Where to stay in Puri

With Puri such a vital place of pilgrimage for Hindus across the world, and tourists keen to witness the festivities and engage with the history of the place, the city offers a good selection of accommodations to suit its varied list of visitors. In the dense collection of streets around the temple, a few guesthouses and hotels provide good access to the main urban points of interest. Down by the coast, you'll find a variety of hotels offering sea views, with budget options usually set a little further back from the golden sands than the upmarket choices.
