Keoladeo National Park, Bharatpur

4.5
#1 of 9 in Things to do in Bharatpur
Internationally revered as one of the top bird-watching spots on the globe, Keoladeo National Park occupies a spot on the World Heritage List. A patchwork of woodlands, dry grasslands, swamps, and wetlands, this 29 sq km (11 sq mi) park provides a protected sanctuary to over 364 species of indigenous and migratory birds, including the rare Siberian crane. Explore clearly marked trails, winding through a diverse habitat by foot or by bike, or hire a rickshaw for a tour with a local puller trained in bird-watching. October until March remains the most popular visiting time with ornithologists, as this is the migratory period for the majority of the park's birdlife. Bring plenty of water and don't forget your binoculars. Make Keoladeo National Park a centerpiece of your Bharatpur vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Bharatpur day trip planning site .

  • Really good for a day visit. It would be better if they had better cycles to rent. But still a great place if you enjoy nature even if you're not specifically a bird watcher.
  • I will like this place if it doesn't have National park in his name. There is nothing here by which we can consider it as a National Park. Roads are not well maintained. Finding birds in this park are like finding a small black stone from a kg of rice. Although it have so much of greenery. You can rent bicycles. Overall not satisfied to me. It can provide much more facilities.
  • Beautiful place for birds watching.It is a Bird paradise. Winter is best time to visit would recommend from November to March. You can find lots of migratory birds as well as resident birds too. Good opportunity for professional n wildlife enthusiast photographer's.
  • Went to the bird sanctuary with my wife. Our guide and rickshaw person was Kartar Singh who has served there for years and is really great at spotting and identifying birds sitting far off or in the bushes. We took binoculars on rent from the entrance and that gave us spectacular close up views of birds. We also saw and fed giant tortoises in the Hanuman temple inside the sanctuary.
  • Wonderful place where you can enjoy the peaceful nature. Birds sound so lovely to hear. Good place for nature & wildlife photography lovers. Beautiful view and so much greenery. Good place to come with family & friends. There are guides as well if you want to explore more.
