DEBRAJ CHAKRABORTY / 13 IMAGES THAT PROVE WHY SON BEEL IN ASSAM IS A PARADISE FOR NATURE LOVERS AND PHOTOGRAPHERS
Posted by: NeBuzz Uploaded: 15-Sep-15







Son Beel is the second largest seasonal wetland in Asia and the largest wetland in Assam. Surrounded by hills to its east and west, and with the Shingla River passing through the wetland, this entire area presents a picturesque paradise for nature lovers and photographers. 

Situated in Karimganj District of Southern Assam, Son Beel’s distinctive landscape is formed by the Hizol trees (Barringtonia Acutangula), which thrives even when they are half submerged in water. The uniqueness of Son Beel is that during the dry winter season it becomes a fully functional farm land where rice cultivation is done and during the rainy season, which starts from March onwards, this stretch of land swells up with water and becomes a lake. The lake is not very deep, so when there is too much of rain the lake overflows and the excess water channels through two rivers - Kakra and Kushira - which eventually flows into Bangladesh. With many months of rainfall, Son Beel is famous for its fishery and it is one of the main producers of fish for the entire district in southern Assam.

Even though this place is not a popular tourist destination, it has great potential. Recently the Deputy Commissioner of Karimganj District, Mr.Sanjib Gohain Boruah, who is also a passionate photographer, is taking a few steps forward to promote tourism in this region.With spectacular sunrises and sunsets and dramatic night sky filled with the stars and the moon, Son Beel is a place that is hard to forget.
