Off the Beaten Track: Harike Wetlands

Did you know that Punjab has the largest wetlands in northern India, situated where the Beas and Sutlej rivers meet about two hours south of Amritsar? It hasn't been developed as a tourist destination, so it lacks facilities and often falls under the radar of many visitors. However, it's a prominent breeding ground for migratory and resident water fowl, with more than 360 recorded species. Boating isn't possible without special permission but there are trails, accessible by vehicle (drive your own or hire a jeep in Amritsar), that offer fine bird sightings. Entry is free and the Harike Wildlife Office issues permits. November to February is the best time to go. It's an appealing destination for nature lovers looking for peace.
