IN SEARCH OF BIRDS!
Although the name of place is bird sanctuary but the birds are very hard to find in winter season. Since my visit was in December, I couldn't much birds over there except few very common species. But this isn't disheartening as well because if you can get bit of peace, fresh air, lush green landscapes that too without spending a penny then you can't ask for more.
There are two gates to enter Okhla bird sanctuary, I entered from the back gate which is a sudden invasion into the sanctuary from road. This entrance is absolutely unnoticeable until and unless you are friends with google maps.
The sanctuary is spread across vast area, absolutely surrounded by beautiful flora. You cannot walk around the entire sanctuary unless you have plenty of time and energy to walk around.
The place is absolutely underrated and the government doesn't seems to invest much in its maintenance, if it would have been maintained properly, then I am sure that it would have attracted plenty of tourists. But if you want to spend your evening watching sunset at lake among birds and flora, then the place is worth visiting.
So, if you are tired with your regular office work, monotonous presentations,pollution and want to spend some healthy time amongst nature without spending a penny then Okhla bird sanctuary is a gift for you. But do remember that not to stay there in late evenings after sunset since it is not too much safe place and staying there can be bit risky.
