We are always looking for a break from the ever running lives of metro cities. One such place for a weekend get away is a visit to the mesmerizing Keoladeo National Park (formerly known as the Bharatpur Bird Sanctuary). Now I wouldn't lie; the place is small and does not have much for you to do so a stay of two days is more than enough there. But this is the perfect place if you wish to see greenery amidst the barren lands of Bharatpur, Rajasthan.
Bharatpur was hot when compared with Delhi in January. But the place attracts many tourists who stop by for a day on their Rajasthan tour. One can take the bus service or car for a fine ride. I went here with a group of friends via rail and we stayed at the Hotel Surya Hotel Vilas Palace, which is on the National Highway 11. It is about 8-10km away from the National park.
