Best Time to Visit
The district of Goalpara does not get too hot even during the summer months of March and April.
However, the best time to visit the Kumri Beel lake is during the winter season, because, firstly, the weather remains cool and dry and secondly a number of migratory birds could be seen in the lake. Monsoon brings heavy shower to the region and therefore, should be ideally avoided.
