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.
Reach Guwahati by afternoon by Air / by Train. Reach Guwahati bus depot, at walking distance from Guwahati Railway station anyone can help to tell the way towards depot. Book Volvo bus tickets for Jorhat (Bus ticket rates may vary, I payed Rs.370). Also the Guwahati bus depot has the facility to keep luggage’s at hourly basis. I had to visit the Kamakhaya Temple so surrendered the luggage and headed towards temple. Private buses available to temple’s foothill or directly to the temple with less than Rs. 20.After reaching temple,I had payed for VIP darshan so that I would not waste time in a long queue, but of no use. Afterwards, inside the temple as we enter VIP’s are treated same like others. After darshan again come back to Guwahati bus depot.Without VIP darshan, anyone may spend whole day in queue by wasting time.Jorhat volvo run overnight. As the tickets are booked from depot, there are public buses from Guwahati bus depot to Volvo bus stand. The bus conductors themselves will find you and take you to the bus and also they make sure that you get your seat in Volvo bus also. It takes 5-5.30 hrs to reach Jorhat. Travelling overnight, the volvo buses drop you to Jorhat bus stand in night 3:30am or max by 4am in early morning. Make sure you have booked your hotel near by bus stand in advance. There are rickshaws available in night which will take you to the hotel safely. Bargain for the price they tell you.
