Ansupa Lake in Banki is 40 km from the city of Cuttack. This eye-catching tourist attraction is about 50 km from Bhubaneshwar.



Anshupa Lake

It is one of the major fresh-water lakes of India, located on the left bank of the Mahanadi river, opposite Banki in Cuttack district, Odisha, India. It is a fresh water lake situated amidst the Saranda Hills and enclosed by bamboo tree greenery and mango trees. [1]

This small but extremely picturesque Ansupa lake holds a prominent position in the tourist map of Odisha for its beauty, proximity. The Govt. of Odisha has taken a giant step to make this lake as one of the Odisha's most popular tourist place. A state highway is now passing by this lake, that connects Athgarh and Banki. Some bamboo cottages are made on the top of Saranda hill for tourist refreshments.
