It is a one day trip and gives pleasure to all category travelers like Bird watchers, Nature lovers, Students, Weekend tourists and even Sea food lovers.

Those who are keen to study the birds and their living patterns can even camp near the lake...

Morning time is the best opportunity to capture photos of the Birds. Boats along with guides are available for hire as a package. The guide explains details of the different varieties of birds, their native place and other interesting aspects of their lives during the one hour boating journey over the Bhigwan lake.

At times hundreds of birds can be seen playing over waters creating great photographic opportunities. One can even feed the birds by throwing fishes in the air. Rest assured, the thrown fish will never fall over the water as the mob of Herons catches it the air itself creating a superb shot.
