about deepor beel

Deepor Beel takes its name from Beel in Assamese which means lake. An alluring wetland under the Ramsar Convention in Assam, it was listed as a lake in November 2002 as an undertaking of the Ramsar Site for different conservation measures on the basis of its biological and environmental importance. It is considered as one of the largest lakes in the Brahmaputra valley, categorised as representative of the wetland type under the Burma Monsoon Forest bio-geographic region.

The splendor of the beel is absolutely enchanting and represents a typical wetland or an irrigation plot of Assam. You can witness a wide variety of birds including Spot billed Pelicans, Lesser Adjutant Stork, White billed Eagle etc. The site for the Deepor Beel Bird Sanctuary is situated at a vicinity from the bustling city of Guwahati. Being very close to a major city, the bird reserve becomes easily accessible by rail, road and air, thereby tourists arrive here in a large number. The sanctuary is a small picturesque and sylvan land that covers a stretch of 4.14 sq. km.

You can witness a plethora of species of avifauna here in the wetland. Some other birds commonly seen in this beel are Brahminy Kite , Mallard,  Lesser Whistling Teal, Open Bill Stork, Bronze Winged Jacana, Lesser Adjutant Stork , Eurasian Marsh Harrier, Gadwall, Pond Heron, and many more.

A Ramsar Site, good for spotting waterbirds. Just at the outskirts of Guwahati, it is easy to reach. But a railway line passing through it and encroachments on the sides are threatening it.
