More Information:

Basically if you are searching for the day trip nearby Kolkata, if you wish to take a healthy breathe and have a joy ride or take a nice walk, Bortir Bill should be one of your bucket lists. This is very pocket friendly and natural destination.


Sahapur is one part of Bortir bil, which is a land of cultivation. This is basically a rural area where many people are farmer by profession. In this part of Bortir bil you find no such amusement as it is a basic village area. But one can go there for a day and breathe healthy. There is a broken bridge at the end upto where any vehicle can go. Then you have to cross the bridge by walking to reach the cultivation area. There is a rural lane which is heading towards the main area of cultivation. Walking through the muddy road surrounded by lush greenery gives you the positive vibe. In one side of the road a canal will be following you till the end. The water for cultivation comes from the canal itself. You will get mesmerizing view of sunset from this area. You will find many raptors like Pied Harrier, Common Kestrel, Black-winged kite and many more flying around and searching for food. There are many other birds like Yellow-bellied Prinia, Blue throat, Ruby Throat, Munias, Common Kingfisher and many more. For birders this is a hot destination for birding. Well you will love to interact with the farmer in this area and buy fresh vegetables directly from the field. There are no such local transport for this area. All you have to do is to book toto from Nilgunj More. 3/4 people would be great in a team to book a toto.


Beraberia is another part of Bortir Bil which is also a vast cultivation area and also fishing paradise. This is also a joint of hanging out and spending quality time for local people also for the outsiders. In monsoon you can ride boat into the bil. In summer and winter these become a fertilized land for cultivation. Jute production is one of the main item here for cultivation. If you visit during Monsoon you will find series of jute has been stripping right beside the muddy road. The road across the field will give you different flavor than the other side of Bortir Bil. This is also a big boating area where the same land has been used for cultivation . So the fact is the same land is being used for both cultivation and boating in different season. During Monsoon and Winter you can visit this place for getting a different flavor. Taking beautiful pictures of skies, sunset and the water body is the main subject for a traveler.


In Monsson local people install some temporary stall of fruits and snacks in this area. It is better to carry food and adequate drinking water with you. For food or any other essential thing you have to come back to Nijgunj More again.
