Posted by Team on: Jan 17, 2023

The Gharana Wetland will soon be included to the region of Jammu's list of tourist attractions. The area is currently being prepared to become a bird sanctuary, replete with all amenities and services for guests. 35 kilometres are needed to travel to get to Gharana Wetland from Jammu. The wetland reserve is currently being developed sustainably by the authorities.

According to sources, the goal is to make this wetland reserve one of Jammu's top tourism destinations. The Gharana Wetlands are currently one of the most significant habitats for both migratory and resident birds. Therefore, it is crucial to avoid disturbing the wetland. The wetland will be developed with the intention of making it accessible in a sustainable way.

Approximately 65 species of resident and migratory birds call the Gharana Wetland home. Bar-headed geese, gadwals, Northern pintails, Northern shovelers, white-breasted ibis, and Eurasian wigeon are a few of the birds that congregate here.

According to rumours, Gharana will have a decent approach road, guest parking space, and chain-link fences if the location is developed as a tourist destination. While ensuring that none of these activities disrupt the birds' natural habitat.
