Chilika Lake, Puri

2.8
#2 of 57 in Nature in Odisha
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.
