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.
En route from Dibrugarh to Ziro, we stopped to experience the beauty of the Brahmaputra River. It’s called Tsang Po in China, where it begins and Jamuna in Bengal where it flows into the Bay of Bengal. One of the most beautiful Himalayan Rivers, Brahmaputra runs for 18,000 miles. It is the only river in India with a male name (all other rivers in India have a female name), and is important for its use as a water body and for sanctity to the local Hindus. A nice cruise over this river will relax your mind and let you absorb the natural beauty on offer.
The first thing you have remember for going to Arunachal Pradesh is to get yourself an inner line permit issued from the government of Arunachal Pradesh. You can either directly apply for it from their offices at Kolkata or Guwahati or take help from some travel agent. In my case, all the hotel bookings,the car booking and the inner line permit issuance was done by a travel agent based out of Kolkata. The name and details of this travel agent are mentioned below:http://www.wandervogeladventures.com/
