Dimna lake

The Dimna lake is an ideal picnic spot and is situated 13km from Jamshedpur. It is an artificial lake in Mirzadih Panchayat of Patamda Block . Dimna lake is surrounded by variety of flora, and can be reached after a beautiful hilly drive. It is situated at the foot hill of Dalma hills.

Huge water body few km from city

A huge water body just a few KM apart from the Mai city . Auto rickshaws are available to reach the destination. Ahter Crossing to dimna more , some rocks and forest surround you on the move. A simple but good road . Water is so clear and transparent that you can see your reflection. The shadows of hills around attracts more. But a little bit discomfort feels for the concrete boundaries. The other side of the lake seems to be more beautiful..

A magnificent lake at the foothill of Dalma

A manmade lake initially created to meet the water requirement of the Steel City by TISCO at the beginning of last century has developed in a massive way as a tourist attraction for the picnickers and weekend travelers. Situated at the foothills of the Dalma range, this picturesque water body also attracts a huge flock of migratory bird in winters. Situated hardly at a distance of only 3 km. from Jamshedpur it has become very popular among the morning walkers too. There are small islands present inside the lakes, which in turn provides excellent habitat for some waterbirds. Tata Steel adventure foundation organize an overnight camping programs and you are supposed to reach the islands in self made rafts. If you are fond of adventure TSAF can be contacted at their office situated in JRD Tata Sports complex. A must for all travelling to Jamshedpur to relax your thoughts.
