    Harike, also known as Hari-ke-Pattan, is situated at the confluence of the Beas and Sutlej rivers. The wetland ecosystem, covering an area of 4,100 hectares, was created following the construction of the Harike barrage across the Sutlej River, and is an internationally recognised Ramsar site. During winters, thousands of migratory birds arrive from the Himalayas, Europe and Siberia, making it the best time of the year to visit it. Some of the regular visitors sighted in the sanctuary include the large cormorant, purple moorhen, bar-headed goose, white-winged tern, tufted duck and the white-eyed pochard. The wetlands are also home to several species of turtles, snakes and fish. The rare Indus River Dolphin can also be seen here. This beautiful aquatic mammal, considered extinct in east Punjab for decades, confirmed its return to Punjab waters. Given its endangered status, it is a privilege to sight these beautiful creatures.

    Season : November-February.

    How to reach : Nearest town to the wetland is Makhu(Ferozepur) Railway Station and Bus Stand is situated 10 km south of the Harike town, which connects to Ferozpur, Faridkot and Bhatinda by the National Highway.
