This was my first sanctuary visit.. Reached Bharatpur on Friday eve.
Opening time: 6 AM Closing Time: 5 PM
Ticket per person: 50 Rs (indian) 250 Rs (Other than indian)
Cycle rate: 25 for normal and 40 for ladies and rangers
Binocular: 50 Rs per hr
Guide : 150 Rs per hr (They have binoculars)(They can arrange a telescope also)
Rickshaw: 100 Rs per hr (Choose the one with Yellow name and number place. Insist for binocular They are equally knowledgeable as guide)
Boating: 150 Rs per hr (Insist to take to Main Lake)
Its definitely a place where u can see a lot birds which u haven't ever seen.. they are beautiful .. very beautiful.
Then in bird sanctuary I heard the name PYTHON and asked our guide to show us.. and we saw 5 (4 live around 12-15 ft each and the one dead was 12 feet). Then we released the guide and planned to roam our self but somehow one of the bicycle broke and we had to carry it till gate 12 kms (Bad experience on first day.) BEWARE WHEN YOU HIRE A CYCLE CHECK IT PROPERLY AND BE PREPARED TO CARRY IT TILL GATE IN CASE IT BREAKS
Option 1: Take map, binocular and cycle on gate and roam urself(ASK HELP AT CHECKPOST IF YOU NEED ANY).
Option 2: Take a rickshaw on gate with binocular(100 Rs per hr) They also have knowledge like guide.
On the second day we saw two pythons 2 ft and 8 ft near the main track.
There are canteen and washroom at gate and then at Keoladev Temple.
Boating was a nice experience .. do it in morning itself.
TIP: DO NOT SPEND A LOT TIME TILL FIRST CHECKPOST.
