Dipor Bil - Review
The Deepor Beel or ‘Dipor Bil’ is a permanent, freshwater lake, in a former channel of the Brahmaputra river, to the south of the main river south-west of Guwahati city. It is a large natural wetland having great biological and environmental importance besides being the only major storm water storage basin for the Guwahati city. The beel is endowed with rich floral and faunal diversity.
Deepor Bil supports some globally threatened species of birds like Spotbilled Pelican (Pelecanus philippensis), Lesser Adjutant Stork (Leptoptilos javanicus), Baer’s Pochard (Aythya baeri), Palas Sea Eagle (Haliaeetus leucogaster), Greater Adjutant Stork (Leptoptilos dubius). The Siberian crane (Grus leucogeranus) regularly migrates to this habitat on its annual journeys.
In addition to huge congregation of residential water birds, the Deepor ecosystem harbours large number of migratory waterfowl each year. Deepor beel has been designated as a Ramsar Site in November 2002.

Dipor Bil, Guwahati Reviews
Very nice place for picnic. View is really nice and beautiful. We have enjoyed our picnic nicely. Many tourists used to visit the place. You can see birds also
Almost 45mins drive from fancy Bazaar, this place is the mother of beauty. Beautiful landscape to watch and spend time. Best time for visit is probably during the sunset. The place has its importance for migratory birds, that is more common during winters. Also there is nearby Temple to visit. Could have been better if some sitting place would have been there. Would suggest to carry some stuff to eat and drink.Although you can get some Coconut water to drink.
Great drive to this place from the Guwahati city traffic. Peaceful place to spend few hours. The visibility of birds depends on the time and season you visit here. Tourist have not exploited this place like other wildlife sanctuaries. Periodically cleaning and proper weight disposal can help to keep this place shrine. As there is no entry fee the maintenance has to come from government.
One of the best and beautiful place attached to the city Guwahati. It's a very relaxing place. Boating is available in Deepor Beel. Different birds species can be seen in Deepor Beel. Many migratory birds also visit here during particular period of the year. Take some time and pay a visit here.
Good but not so viewing place...evening u will find some birds
