I am a bird watcher. Really great to see these many birds together in a sanctuary. Painted storks are majorly found. Apart from that you may find black ibis, etc. Open during major part of the year. Closed post the summer as the water level will be low and you may not find many birds. The binoculars can be rented... More

One of many trip highlights. I was stunned by the sheer volume of birds concentrated in this place - yet it was green and serene. Take time to stroll around the pathway and soak up the sights. Very, very nice place.

I had heard and read about Vedantangal for quite some time. One day I just checked with a couple of friends if they were interested and on getting a positive response planned a short trip. Vedantangal is about 100 kms from Pondicherry via NH 45 and 66, which are excellent roads. The drive was enjoyable and we reached the sanctuary... More

We visited this bird sanctuary mid February and saw many birds ao spot-billed pelicans, painted storks, Asian open-bill storks, black-headed ibis, grey herons, pond herons, cormorants, kingfishers, etc.. The birds can be seen while walking the water edge and by climbing a watch tower. Great views from above and good vantage point to take photos of them flying.
