Poddo Beel of Ghagutia

Type: Lake
Contributed By: Nayeem


Poddo Beel of Ghagutia is located beside the Ghagutia BGB camp. Local people pronounce the name as Ghaguitta (ঘাগুইট্টা). As you require boat to explore the beel, you might find that in the house just near the camp. The owner’s name of the boat is Mohammad Shohel.

As the water level decreases day by day, it is hard to push the boat through those dense leafs of lotus and lilies. The number of lotus flower is not few to count. Usually in the morning the flowers are being collected by the villagers. You may see the broken stalk of flowers everywhere. You can collect lot of flowers and Poddo fruits from the Beel during your ride. The whole Beel is covered with plants like Poddo, Shaluk, Chad Mala, and other aquatic flowers.

Beside the Beel, the Indian border is visible easily. In fact, 20 percent of that Beel are actually located inside India. But almost 80 percent is inside Bangladesh. In Summer, when the water dries up completely, villagers cultivate paddy there. Again in the Monsoon, the Beel gets flourished with Poddo (চাঁদ মালা) and other aquatic flowers.
