River Dhepa

Type: River
Contributed By: Nayeem


River Dhepa is in north Bengal; more precisely it is near to the famous “Kantaji Temple” of Dinajpur. River Dhepa is originated from the river Atrai, and then it falls at the river Punarbhaba. This is a shallow river, and the average depth of the river was around 2-4 feet. The length of the river is around 40 kilometer.

The river is itself beautiful. The two banks of the river make it more beautiful due to the various kinds of crops fields. Main crop field is corn, but there are others like paddy, and some vegetable fields.

The water of the river is not muddy, it’s clear. Due to the shallowness of the river, you can easily see the bottom of the river easily. Also there are some very small mound of soil is visible throughout the whole river. Some mound contains green plants.

Another beauty of the river is, the nest of the bird “Kingfisher” at the bank of the river. There are some places where the banks are too high. At the soil, the kingfisher birds made their nest. It’s a lovely scene. They are not only gorgeous to see, but also exciting when they are about to catch a fish from the water.
