Beloon

Beloon is a small village situated on the banks of Shibai River in the district of Bardhhaman. In winter flocks of migratory birds visit the waters of River Shibai. You can take a nice stroll along the river bank watching the boats sailing on the river. If you want you may hire a boat yourself and sail in the waters of Shibai river. The best time to visit the place is during winter when a large number of birds including White Throated Kingfisher, Woolly Necked Stork, Ruddy Shelduck are seen in this village. There is a lake close to Beloon Eco Village. You can also do fishing in this lake. From Beloon, you can visit Kalyanpur Ghat where a number of dolphins are seen.
