celebrating life on the road has an appeal of its own. No doubt life on the roads that compels some people to adopt traveling and without any second thought When it comes to exploring new destinations, there’s no stopping. Odisha is somehow underrated, so here is a mini blog about two must visit peaceful spot in Odisha.
Deras Dam is a small water reservoir located at a distance of, nearly 25 km away from the capital city, Bhubaneswar. The vibe vibes here, beautiful and peaceful for a long walk but be careful while stepping down from stairs.
This short trip began with three of my friends. It was way more fascinating three years ago when the water level was high but this time It was quite a sunny day and unfortunately, the water level was much lower. Pluviophile alert, if you love rain don’t forget to visit dams especially during several weeks of August and September. Deras Dam is located in a small village named kantabada of Khordha district. This dam is the third largest dam in Odisha. Outskirts of Odisha are a must-visit if you want to travel and want to reboot your mind and body after these series of lockdowns. Greeneries which will force you to forget all the chaotic noise of a busy city, moreover you can also find some pretty shells.
After having a calm walk in Deras we went to Jhumka Dam which is hardly 3 to 4 km away from Deras. It is another minor irrigation project other than Deras which is located on the sanctuary boundary.
You have the bike and good weather then what are you waiting for, just move and visit because lakes, embayment, estuary and bay never disappoint you. Moreover, some nice hiking trails too are waiting for you if you are willing to explore.
