Keoladeo National Park

Formerly known as Bharatpur Bird Sanctuary, this is an UNESCO World Heritage Site which was once a hunting ground of the Maharajas. This place is a beautiful wetland and a land rich in the diversity of flora and fauna. Though the water supply is a standing problem but this has been compensated by many other advantages. This is also the only National Park which is surrounded by a wall which protects it from the fear of encroachment and any outside attacks. Spread over a large area, this place was legalised by the Wildlife Protection Act, 1972 and other necessary laws. This was earlier on an ordinary wildlife sanctuary but was later given the rating of a national park. Migratory birds from far- off countries and the gorgeous wild animals are worth seeing here. The animals are allowed to roam around freely within a given boundary and thus they also feel at home. Wildlife safaris are the best thing you can do over here apart from some peaceful hours of bird watching especially during the early hours of the day.

Next day was completely dedicated to Keoladeo Bird Sanctuary, famously known as Ghana (dense forest). Dec and Jan being the season of migratory birds, we were in for a feast. We started our day at 8 with some nice kachoris and jalebis and entered the Bird Sanctuary at around 9 AM. A guide and a long range camera is must before you plan a visit to any Bird Sanctuary. One needs to take entry ticket and opt for a rickshaw/ cycle. For amateurs, it is advisable to take a guide, as they are well trained in locating birds in their natural habitat. As the area is a swamp and marshy, it makes it conducive for a lot of birds to get their feed, housing and laying eggs. There are about 12 such swamps and for a serious bird watching enthusiast, 1 day is not enough.

Since most tours start early in the day, and the simple fact that you need to get the most out of this opportunity to view as many varieties of birds and animals as possible.
After an excellent day at the park, you can travel the day to the Keoladev National Park (formerly the Bharatpur Bird Sanctuary) in Bharatpur, Rajasthan. It's a short 4 hour drive from Delhi, after which you can enjoy the rest of the day enjoying the facilities of the Ashoka Forest Lodge or the Shanti Kutir.The Keoladev National Park hosts upwards of 1 lakh tourists every year, inclusing several thousand foreign tourists who visit the reserve for its amazing bird watching spots, deemed to be one of the best in Asia.
