The beautiful and mesmerizing lake, Son Beel also called as Shon Bill is one of the largest lakes of Southern Assam’s Karimganj district. The most amazing thing about Son Beel is that it becomes a farm land for rice cultivation during winter till March and then the land fills with water and becomes a lake. The less depth of the lake makes it overflow during rainy season and the water meets Kushira River through Kakra River and flows to Bangladesh.
