India certainly has a lot to offer those seeking the best in history, nature, culture, and all in between. It is a mesmerizingly gorgeous country. But there are some beautiful locations in the nation that require urgent preservation efforts on our part, and regrettably, we appear to have missed the ball someplace. So, in this article, we’ll discuss 10 such locations in India that, regrettably, are only going to be around for a short time.
- The Largest River Island, Majuli In Assam, Is Receding.
One of India’s most diversified wildlife habitats is Majuli in upper Assam. The largest river island on earth is home to elephants, tigers, deer, rabbits, snakes, buffaloes, and several species of birds. Tragically, the island is getting smaller. The island’s original size of 483 sq km has been drastically reduced to 421 sq km due to significant erosion caused by deforestation. Some studies indicate that at this pace, Majuli may even vanish within the next 15 to 20 years.
- Jammu And Kashmir’s Wular Lake: The Dwindling Lake
One of the biggest freshwater lakes in the world is Wular Lake in Kashmir, which frequently offers water activities for both locals and visitors. However, it is getting smaller as a result of pollution and waterfowl hunting. While it lasts, take in the beauties of this impressive aquatic body. To make the lake bigger, there is a proposal to cut down 2 million trees, but it will take some time. And yet, it seems a little strange that trees would need to be taken down in order to protect a natural body.
- The Greatest City Of The Indus Valley Civilization Is Rakhigarhi, In The Indian State Of Haryana.
An archaeologist’s paradise, this village in Haryana’s Hisar district. In comparison to the sites at Mohenjodaro and Harappa, archaeologists concluded this to be the location of the largest city in the Indus Valley civilization in 1963. Despite the fact that the site had been dug for three winters starting in 1997, it was put on hold because of a CBI probe into alleged financial mismanagement. The border wall has also been rendered worthless by a lack of upkeep, allowing people to steal ancient relics from the location and sell them to interested purchasers.
- The Limestone Shoals Of Rama Setu, Tamil Nadu, Which Connect Two Countries
Rama Setu, also called Adam’s Bridge, is a group of limestone shoals that connects Mannar Island in Sri Lanka with Dhanushkodi in India. According to legend, Rama’s Vaanar Sena was the group that built the bridge. While it is still just speculation, the sad fact is that the Sethusamudram Shipping Canal Project, which is being planned by the Indian government, poses a threat to this natural wonder’s continued survival.
- Sundarbans, West Bengal – Mother Nature’s Two Faces
If you enjoy the environment and wildlife, the Sundarban Delta is one of the most intriguing places on earth. It is famed for the now endangered Bengal Tiger and for having the world’s largest mangrove forest. But nature also has a sinister side. Due to its low lying location, the delta is in serious risk of being drowned and destroyed. This lovely place may soon be history if we take into account the escalating effects of global warming (it’s not a myth, people! ), as well as the rising sea level.
- Jammu And Kashmir’s Dechen Namgyal Monastery, A Fortified Center For Spirituality
This magnificent walled Buddhist monastery, also known as a gompa, was constructed in the 17th century along the Ladakh trade route by Ladakhi King Sengge Namgyal with help from Tibetan monk Stag-Tsang-Ras-Pa. Over time, the necessary repair work has suffered due to how challenging it is to access. Together with assistance from the residents of Hanle village, the ten monks who pray there try their best to keep it standing.
- Rajasthan’s Jaisalmer Fort, A Magnificent Building Battling Modernity
The Jaisalmer Fort in Rajasthan, one of the biggest fortifications in the world, is a source of pride for the Rajputs of India. Amazingly, a number of families continue to reside on the fort’s grounds, and it is a popular tourist destination. The fort is decaying as a result of growing population and the installation of modern plumbing (something that could not have been considered when the fort was erected in the 12th century). Yes, this is also included in the WMF watch list.
- Balpakram Forest, Meghalaya – The Supposed Resting Place Of The Dead
In the southern region of Meghalaya, there is a national park or forest called Balpakram. According to local lore, this is where the departed’s souls repose and is home to the indigenous Garo tribe. The emerald gorges are a wildlife lover’s paradise, home to numerous species of wildcats, red pandas, and wild water buffalo.
- Lakshadweep’s Coral Reef: The Beauty Beneath The Surface
You already know how wonderful the coral reefs are in Lakshadweep if you’ve ever gone snorkeling there. However, excessive blast fishing, coral mining, and changes in navigational paths are endangering these. You’ll see how gloomy the future of the region is when you add increasing sea levels brought on by global warming to the hate-list.
- The Valley Of Flowers In Uttarakhand Is Only Accessible By Trekkers
The phrase “beauty may be a terrible mistress” was accurate. The biggest threat to Uttarakhand’s Valley of Flowers is the influx of tourists because the area is so picturesque. With regard to Valley of Flowers, there is a fine line between a good hiking location and a developing tourist hotspot, and it appears that we have passed it.
Sometimes nature is to blame, but most frequently it’s us humans that sabotage the good things. It would be wise to turn around right now. Continue Enjoy Read Beeptrio Blogs
