The Kanjli wetland is located about 20 kms North-East of Harike. Kali Bein on which Kanjli Wetland is located had been one of the important tributaries of River Beas. This rivulet has played an important role in the formation of fertile plains by bringing down large sediment loads during floods. Kanjli Lake came into formation with the construction of a small barrage during 1870. The lake is thus fresh water permanent feature. The soils mainly are alluvium in nature consisting of alluvial sand, clay and loam. Maximum depth of water varies from 10 feet to 25 feet depending upon the season and water inflow. Catchment area is mainly under agriculture. Kali Bein ultimately joins Harike Wetland downstream after covering a distance of about 20 kms
