Deras and Jhumka are two beautiful picnic spots situated in Khorda district at a distance of about 15 kms from Bhubaneswar. Deras and Jhumka are actually two dams but the exhilarating scenic beauty of the place has made it a good picnic spot. Every year in winter season thousands of picnickers visit this place to enjoy a day out in the lap of nature. Three heavily dense forested hills surrounded the dams on three sides and the remaining side is all covered with water up to the horizon. It is a place worth visiting.
One can easily reach Deras and Jhumka from Bhubaneswar (only 15 kms) by private two wheeler or four wheeler. However if you don’t have one, you can opt for a hired vehicle.
