kanwar lake bird sanctuary

The Kanwar Lake Bird Sanctuary was established in 1987 to ensure the preservation of birds that migrated to Bihar. The marshes around the Kanwar Lake, known to be the largest freshwater oxbow lake in Asia, create the perfect habitat for these travelling birds. Over 60 different varieties of birds have been recorded to have travelled through the park from Central Asia and over 160 birds live permanently in the park. Among animals, the musk deer, leopards, black bear and foxes are commonly found here. The best time to visit the sanctuary is between October to June.
