Kansbahal Dam - Rourkela - Kansbahal - Odisha - A Famous Picnic Place

Kansbahal Dam:

It is roughly around 6 Km's from the entry point to L&T campus. It is build for irrigation. The place is awesome and can be an ideal weekend retreat. The dam is build on a gorge that once housed a small village, but that is history now. You can still see the branches sticking out of water. It is bulit on numerous streams, the major one being ghoghar river, which meanders its way and pours out into the Sankh river at water point. A must visit if you live nearby.

How to Reach Kansbahal Dam?

Reach Kansbahal which is about 20 kms from Rourkela on State Highway 10. Take a left turn and road will lead to L & T Residential Colony and then reach Kansbahal Railway Station. A right turn (near the Railway Cabin)before the station will lead straight to the Dam.Its hardly 5 kms from the SH-10.
