Dimna Lake

If getting away from the city and spending a quiet day with your loved ones or friends is what's on your mind, Dimna Lake would be the ideal place to spend your day. An artificial lake in the steel city of Jamshedpur, it is located in the foothills of the Dalma mountain range and is famous for its serenity and pleasant greenery. The lake is pretty well-known as a picnic spot with its clear water and scenic surroundings, creating scope for mini treks into the hills, and water activities such as boating, rowing, and jet skiing among many others. In stark contrast with its industrial surroundings, the serene lake is one of the most crucial structures in the area, since it is used as a reservoir to store and provide water for the steel plant, along with being the primary source of water for the city. Over the years, the need for a dam was felt to hold the water in the reservoir, so that it can be used as and when required optimally. The Dimna Dam was conceived to overcome a water deprivation situation in Tatanagar (as Jamshedpur is also known) and surrounding areas. Constructed under the auspices of Indian conglomerate Tata Steel, the dam is built on River Kharkai under the administration of the Mirzadih Panchayat of Jamshedpur. A gorgeous sunrise coming up from behind the hills, with splendid greenery and melodious chirping of birds is what sets this artificial lake apart as a traveller's destination. It is a popular weekend getaway for the local people of Jharkhand, or as a recreational outing for tourists on an extended tour. The road to Dimna Lake will take you on a ride through the undulating but spectacular hilly terrains of eastern India.

Dalma Wildlife Sanctuary

Dalma Wildlife Sanctuary is famous for its forest tourism, but to the residents, it is more familiar because of its wild resident elephants. 'Dalma Haathi' or the 'Elephants of Dalma' is a known and quite fearful term in the Jamshedpur-Puruliya region. Established in 1975 and inaugurated by Sanjay Gandhi, the Dalma forest is home to a horde of animals, birds and tree species as well. Overlooking the shimmering Subarnarekha River, the Dalma hills nestle the dense green forests like an offspring. This ambience of the forest and the odd chance of having a glimpse at the wild animals is what makes Dalma so special among those who love to travel around jungles. Once an untamed natural beauty for acres after acres, parts of this wild forest got shunted when the steel plant was established by JN Tata near the Kharkai-Subarnarekha confluence. However, whatever remains is still large enough to be a paradise for all the native Indian flora and fauna you can think of. Many elephants migrate to this forest every year adding to the crowd, and sometimes they come out into the local villages and suburbs. Travellers wishing to explore a slice of one of India's most authentic forests can take a drive through or even better - spend a night at the rest houses and bamboo huts offered by the forest department. There is nothing better for a nature lover than to spend a night listening to the crickets, the distant, solitary howl of a wild creature and the otherwise overwhelming silence. Among the few true-blue forests of India, Dalma Wildlife Sanctuary offers excellent bird watching experience, exciting in-jungle lodging and spectacular view from atop the Dalma peak which also has a couple of temples you can visit.
