chilika lake

The glorious stretch of the Chilika Lake is not only Odisha but also Asia’s largest brackish water lake, spread over an area of 1100 square kilometers. It links to the Bay of Bengal. It has the richest variety of aquatic brute creations and a real paradise for Bird. One can view the dolphins at Chilika mouth near Satapada 48 k.m. from Puri. Boating and fishing facilities free in this lake. For crushing and visiting the Kalijai Island & another Island one can make use of the motor launch from Balugaon.

Satapada Village, Chilika Lake

We left Satpada by boat to see the dolphins. Each boat has eight to ten passengers. Before boarding the boat, the authorities taught everyone life jackets. The tourism authorities have helped to get the boat out of line one by one in a very nice way. The village of Satapada, from where the saltwater or lake begins. The environment here is very beautiful, I felt the light air as it is a lake inhabited area. There are a few small food hotels and lodges to stay.
If you wish, you can visit the lake in a good way from the lodge for a few days.

I think it must take at least a week to visit the entire lake. Especially good for honeymoon tours. But of course, 7 days is a lot less time to understand the environment and its behavior in a very good way. Almost all the vehicles from Puri or Bhubaneswar come and stop at Satapada village. The environment and income of this village depend entirely on the sea and the lake. Most of the people living on the banks depend on Chikla Lake for their livelihood.

After putting on my life jacket, I went and sat in the engine-driven boat. The boat is moving with a medium ear sound. I am feeling light cold air a little further. It’s nice to see a variety of guest birds flying by. It seems that some news is coming again and again. The guest bird and some of its own private messages. Be good guest birds.
