HolidayIQ Reviewer Rishabh Kamal shares, “Fresh air, okay strolling surface but average snack quality; Kanke Dam is a tourist spot in the city of Ranchi. The name is very popular among its citizens, however, the spot is not very much popular... The best part about this spot is that it is a getaway in itself and you can enjoy fishing here. Outside its campus, there is a big market for vegetables and fishes.”
