Bharatpur Tour Packages

Bharatpur Bird Sanctuary very often referred as Keoladeo Ghana National Park, has one of the most diverse bird life in the country. Two-thirds of the Park lies under water and the remaining one-third is covered with dry deciduous forests and extensive grasslands.

Avian Paradise
From August through November, it is indigenous water birds. In early October the first migrants arrive from the high plateaux of central Asia, Mongolia and Siberia, the most eagerly awaited of the lot being the gravely threatened Siberian crane. The month of March sees most of these migrants leave the national park. Migratory birds at Keoladeo include, as large a bird as Dalmatian pelican, which is slightly less than two meters, and as small a bird as Siberian disky leaf warbler, which is the size of a finger. Other migrants include several species of cranes, pelicans, geese, ducks, eagles, hawks, shanks, stints, wagtails, warblers, wheatears, flycatchers, buntings, larks and pipits, etc.

There are well-defined forest trails, the journey can be easily covered on foot, on a bicycle or can also hire a rickshaw. Rickshaw pullers have been trained by the efficient park management who have an expertise knowledge in bird watching and are quite familiar with different bird species. Boats are also available on hire. An early morning or late evening boat trip is recommended.
