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.

  • If you have a bike or Scotty or even a car then this is an excellent place to drive to and from. The breezing air and presence makes it superb place to sit with your friend or family. Enjoy the natural environment with open heart to love it more. This place could have been managed much better with more better transport and boating or fishing options. We came with Uber and in return had to make tough arrangements, but was an experience too. Overall for the nature and it's love making 5 star.

  • 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
