CholonBil is the largest bill and one of the richest water lands in Bangladesh. This largest bil in the country is actually a cluster of many small bils connected together with various canals and ditches. During the rainy season the total area of about 368 square kilometres turns into a huge water body.

The small bils which formed CholonBil are: Piprul, PurboMadhyanagar, Laror, Dangapara, Tajpur, Nizala, Majhgaon, Briasho, Chonmohon, Shatail, Khardaho, Darikushi, Kajipara, Gajna, Borobil, Shonapatila, Ghughudaho, Kurulia, Gorka, Dikkhibil and Chirol.

A number of rivers are also flowing through CholonBil. The most prominent among those are: Karotoa, Atrai, Gur, Boral, Tulshi, Vadai, Chiknai, Boronja, Telkupi etc.

After visiting CholonBil you may also visit the CholonBil Museum. In 1978, a local teacher named Abdul Hamid established this museum at Khubjipur village in Gurudashpur Upazila.
