Akashi Haor

Type: Haor
Contributed By: Nayeem


Akashi Haor (আকাশী হাওড়) is a small one, but extraordinarily beautiful. The word Akashi means sky blue color and the word Haor means inundated water body that is created due to overflowing of nearby river. So combining the two words it means sky blue colored water body. And interestingly the color of the water was really bluish. The clouds from the sky easily reflect on the pristine water from the Haor.

Few places are occupied with water there. So local people usually do fishing, and probably they will continue until the area dried up totally. Most of the fishing nets are having same design and structure. Also the style of fishing is a bit different from other area as well.
