Get Dramatic At This Picturesque Lake That Has Been An Iconic Film Shooting Spot For Years

Shortcut

Take a break from your humdrum routine and drive down to Dimna Lake in Jamshedpur for some merriment amid lush green surroundings.

What Makes It Awesome

Located around 13km from Jamshedpur city area and a seven-hour drive from Kolkata, Dimna Lake is a perfect weekend gate-away if you're up for some recluse time with your loved ones. Nestled on Dalma hills, the crystal clear water of the artificial lake along with its lush green surroundings make it a perfect picnic spot. Sit and admire before you start taking pictures.

For an adrenaline rush go on a mini treks into the hills and water activities like boating, rowing and jet skiing (feeling excited already?). Ever wondered what a dam looks like? The lake also serves as a reservoir supplying water to several areas in Jamshedpur. Drop in during the wee hours to catch a glimpse of the sunrise at the backdrop of Dama hills.

What Could Be Better

There is lack of proper security in the area and petty crimes are also on the rise. Plastic and non-biodegradable waste littered here and there have tarnished the look of the area to some extent. We wish there is a fixed group of civic workers to help retain the beauty of the area.

Pro-Tip

If your little one is up for some wildlife adventure, take him/her to Dalma Wildlife Sanctuary, which is a 12-minute drive from the lake.
