So, if you are looking for the perfect place for hours of interrupted relaxation, less noise and great natural sceneries—then Rasik Beel is for you!
Tour operators and the Government of West Bengal are promoting this region as a haven for bird watchers and forest lovers.

A leisurely walk through the landscaped gardens of Rasik Beel bring you closer to the jungles and allow a peek into the natural habitats of hundreds of small mammals and birds residing in the area.
Early morning or the evening are the best time to visit to visit the lake and take pictures of the avian species bathing in its waters, catching fish or simply taking a swim in peaceful environs. Remember to carry your binoculars and read about the birds found in this area.
