We spent one night in Bharatpur and visited the bird sanctuary in the afternoon and again the next morning. This pairing was ideal, as the light was very different for photography. Definitely invest in the naturalist. Even if the rickshaw driver is competent, two pairs of expert eyes are better than one. And when you ultimately convert their prices into... More

Ishwar singh the most third class guide of Bharatpur bird sanctuary. He tricked his tourist by misguiding them and take them to wrong directions to achieve extra hours so that he can charge extra money.

The old temple at the very end of the trek, the watch tower at the crossing of the canal, that sly fox keeping an eye on you from the underbrush, that elegant crane ignoring you and the swallows flying overhead, it was all pretty as a picture.

I am here after three decades or more and little has changed other than some structures at the entrance to service management needs such as ticketing, toilets and a canteen. The avid bird watcher would obviously choose a better season but hiring a 'naturalist' helps even the casual tourist. Even the rickshaw drivers have picked up quite a bit of... More

This was my third time to the park and it was not a charm. During my first visit in Oct. 2007 I saw more migratory birds than the resident ones. This time I could view only a handful of the resident species. My guide has put the blame on the government for not releasing enough water to the wet lands.... More
