We did a river trip organised by the nearby Chambal safari lodge (a lovely place to stay). The river is extremely clean and unpolluted so has a lot of river life: mugger crocodiles, gharial, dolphins, turtles and a huge range of birds. Even a camel...More

Its a nice river filled with crocodiles and ghariyal and you can have some good sightings of these dangerous animals during the boating. But its not a must try type of thing. If you have time then try it.

Peaceful but not a lot to see. Saw some birds but no garihals. A few people on shore line were doing their washing. Not worth the diversion.

This attraction is not fully developed and far from Ranthambhore driving in a dusty and bumpy road for over 1 and half hour. Once a paved road is constructed might offer a better access.

Bad roads if you are coming from Sawai Madhopur. Takes 2 hours for a 20km one way ride. But the boat ride in Chambal is worth the pain. You can see aligators and crocodile from up close. Need to bargain with the local boat service...More
