The Haiderpur Wetland is a UNESCO Ramsar site located within the Hastinapur Wildlife Sanctuary in Uttar Pradesh, India, near the Bijnor Ganga Barrage. The Haiderpur wetland is one of the biggest man-made wetlands, having been constructed in 1984 as a result of the building of the Madhya Ganga Barrage. The region is nourished by the Ganges and its tributary, the Solani river, and covers an area of 6908 hectares inside the Hastinapur Wildlife Sanctuary in the districts of Muzaffarnagar and Bijnor. The wetland is located on the vital Central Asian Flyway, which serves as a significant stopover for winter migrating birds.
