More Information: Intro

It is also known as Chupi Char, it lies on the banks of a large oxbow lake created by the Ganges river and it is actually a bird paradise which remains covered by migrated birds in winter season.



Why to go

People who are getting annoyed living city life and seek for some refreshment, obviously this is a place where you can make it happen, the weather remains very refreshing specially in winter. It's blue water will blow your mind once you get into the boat and start journey.

This is one of the rich destinations for bird lovers where you can find plenty of migrated birds in winter season. Watching bird activity is also something watch worthy into the lake.



When to go

Frankly, winter is the best season to go to the place for huge bird availability. Avail November, December, January and February to get the best flavor of it.



Accommodation

Ever if you feel like having a night stay beside the lake, you can book the beautiful Purbasthali accommodation by clicking the link http://purbasthali.com/purbasthali-accommodation/



Whom you should contact

Many people contact to the boatman whom they Know previously. All want to have some good ride every time so they book someone Who can show them birds very well and can they have some good conversation with boatman. Few like others, we have contacted Laxman(+91 8609558280) who is having very good experience of showing the activities of birds, he can guide you well, tell you the name of the birds and most importantly he has a lot of patience to give you the best experience.

Note:One boat can accommodate 4 people max. But if all 4 persons are photographer, then i must say it will be a bit problematic. 3 photographers with camera can be accommodated well.



What to do

I suggest take full day to spend time on the boat, see birds activities, take pictures, spend quality times.

Also go to the Osprey island which is isolated from the lake and inside the river Ganga. Take a view of Mayapur temple, enjoy the bushy path through which you pass towards Ganga, get down to the islands and enjoy the crops and fields. If you get bored ever, you can take a nap into the boat itself. ha ha ha.



Don't list

  • Never be loud throughout the journey.
  • Never throw plastic bags or bottle into the water.
  • Never throw waste food outside the boat.
  • Don't move too much inside the boat, as here all boats are a bit narrow.
  • Never misbehave with boatman, your behavior will reflect to their reactions
  • Don't chase birds, let them come to you.
  • Don't try to restrict their all day activities.
