Deepor Beel Wildlife Sanctuary
The Beel is a source of livelihood for several of the villages around it whose fishermen depend on it. Boats moving around the lake are a common sight here as the fishermen throw their net into the water hoping for a good catch of freshwater fish. What is heartening is that overfishing is never the case here and the local people are also well aware of the need to preserve this rich piece of wetland to sustain the ecosystem of the area. There have been serious cases of land cutting, waste water disposal and land grabbing in the vicinity that has raised serious concerns regarding the dangers faced by the Beel’s ecosystem. Hunting and trapping of birds happens occasionally and more manpower is needed for the authorities to look into these matters. Thankfully, the local people realise it and have been active with several groups and NGOs to counter these maladies and keep the Beel fit for all purposes.

Meghalaya’s capital, Shillong is quaint hill-station flanked by pine forests and a few hundred waterfalls scattered across the charming landscape. Also referred to as the Scotland of the East, Shillong is replete with remnants of its British legacy, that can be seen in its architecture and the cuisine found on most menus. The beautiful Umiam, is a manmade lake and locally known as Barapani, it’s one of Shillong’s most popular places to visit. The Wards Lake is another artificial creation and tourists flock to this destination mainly for the boat rides. The multitude of waterfalls crowding the city - Sweet, Bishop and Beadon, and Elephant falls play a significant role in Shillong’s tourism. The Don Bosco Centre of Indigenous Cultures, is a cultural repository for all the seven Northeastern states, boasting of everything from weapons to rare photographs. To witness a magnificent view of the entire city, the Shillong Peak at 1695 msl fanning out over the town is your best bet. While touring Shillong, don’t forget to incorporate the beautiful Golf Course, that is perched at an elevation of 5200ft.
Day 1 - Taste of AssamLanded in Guwahati and took the brand new cutie pie at Rentrip Guwahati - Bike Rental Service. Rentrip team helped me a lot to plan my initial 2 days at Guwahati to have a feel of North East India - People, Food , Roads , Flora's , Fauna & Mighty Skinned Rhino's !From the Bike pickup point went straight to Pobitora Wildlife Sanctuary ; while on the way to the Sanctuary itself , started sighting (500m away from Road) the Thick Stone Skinned Beasts - "Great Indian One Horned Rhinos" on the damp swamps along with numerous flying creatures - "Birds". My love for the Bird Sighting started here at Pobitora. Spent a good 2 Hrs with the Indian Pride One Horned Rhino's in a Jeep Safari & by the road side.Started back to Guwahati at 4:30 pm to spend the rest of day around Guwahati but it has already started getting Dark which never happens in my part of Southern India - Tamilnadu (Sunsets Sets here after 6:00 pm). Checked in at a local Motel on the way back to Guwahati and had the pleasure to spend the night with Mr.Savage - NE Origin Barley Juice.
