Keoladeo National Park or Bharatpur Bird Sanctuary has been the most organized bird sanctuaries in India. Drought and mismanagement of water levels have ensured that some of the prime migratory bird life fled elsewhere. However, Bharatpur remains an attraction for bird watching and an excellent stop over for anyone travelling on the Agra – Jaipur route.

Over the years, over 380 resident and migrant species of birds have been recorded in the area including the Common Demoiselle and the rare Siberian Cranes, several species of cormorants, egrets, pelicans, ibis, cranes, ducks and geese and some of India's richest bird life.

There are well-defined forest trails, which can easily be covered on foot or on a cycle. One can also hire a rickshaw or boats that are available as well. An early morning visit is recommended for the best experience.

Bharatpur is recommended for any bird watcher and an easy getaway for anyone looking to start off in bird photography.

Season: October-March  Recommended Stay: 1 - 2 nights
