U’khand’s Asan Barrage deprived of trained ornithologist

Wild bushes are ruining the natural beauty, and the polluted water of the barrage is waiting for treatment. Water plants growing here and there can also create hindrance to the water sports activity.

As per local visitor, the condition of this picnic spot has not improved, in spite of tall claims of GMVN and state tourism development board. Consequently, tourists are showing little interest, and diverting to other areas for recreation during weekends.

The group of monkeys is trouble-maker for the tourists, and they snatch eatables, which they found pleasing to their taste-buds. One should be careful, while eating something on the spot, and children should be discouraged to carry eatables, as they are easy target for simians.

For keen novice observers of migratory birds playing on the water currents, there is no facility of guide or trained ornithologists, who can guide them in updating their knowledge of birds. The only help-mate is sign-board of birds standing at the entrance of barrage. Birds come and go, but there is no one who can guide school children to explore their knowledge regarding migratory birds.

The condition of some paddle boats running in the barrage is deplorable, as they have become old and need replacement. Motor boats are not running these days, as they can create nuisance to the exotic birds. From the safety point of view, only life-saving jackets are provided to the visitors, and there are no availability of rescue guards in case of any mishap occurs on the surrounding areas.
