Keoladeo is a fabulous bird and animal sanctuary. There are more birds than critters, and at the right time of year there are lots of butterflies too. We've been here twice in the last 14 months and been rewarded both times. You can go through on foot, by bicycle or by rickshaw. You'll see more on foot.

Honestly had high expectations from this place; but landed up being slightly disappointed at what we got to see. The variety of birds is limited - though we did get to see some of the birds which we usually do not spot. We also spotted a lots of deers - spotted and sambars. The birds we did spot were very...

My second visit to Bharatpur was marred by unseasonal rains, but a healthy bird list of 110, followed by 7 mammals, and 1 reptile more than made up for it. Just 1 and a half day of birding yielded us this much. From local birds to winter migrants, you are kept busy through the day. Park authorities have done a... More

1. We visited Keoladeo National Park (KNP) on 25th & 26th Jan 2015. 2. We started from Gurgaon at 10.30 am and drove to KNP (about 190 Kms from Gurgaon). It took us almost 5 hours to cover the distance (because of traffic and also the road condition is not good at many places. Flyovers are under construction on the... More

The park is a vast area to visit and its better to hire a rickshaw guide to take you around. The official rickshaw pullers are good guides and trained by the forest officials and they can identify the various species of birds who migrate mostly during the winters season. Advice is to have a good binocular and a good camera... More

Make sure you have an awesome camera or a nice pair of binoculars. The sight of various bird in the natural surrounding of luscious green trees is just mesmerising.

A highly recommended place for Bird watchers.Cycles, Rickshaws & Tonga's Available. I would recommend walking for as long as you can, one way stretch is around 5 KM. Should have good Binoculars , a minimum of 250mm Zoom. Fortunately we hires a Good Guide "Mr. Jagdish Prasad" who insisted on renting a Telescope too, which eventually was the best thing... More

The park is vast and most people seem to take a rickshaw ride through it. We went on a guided nature walk which was quite pleasant but meant that we only saw a fairly small area of the park. And in this area birdlife was rather sparse. Ideally you should make an early start and do both the rickshaw ride... More

Its an experience to be there. Govt. has been serious in conservation, only cycle rickshaw and bicycles are allowed. The Rickshaw pullers are quite well versed with birds and topography. Worth a visit. One can also stay in Ashoka Hotel (ITDC) within the park. its quite ok being Government owned. It has restaurant and serves Indian and Continental foods. Else... More
