  • Nice getaway for a few hours. Lots of fun watching migratory birds, though only up to mid-February. Binoculars on hire to get a better sight of birds, a good thing set up by a few enterprising hawkers. Nor much choice of food. Good place for a picnic, carrying own food and water.
  • We visited Vedanthangal first 10 years back. After that we have been visiting it regularly. We visited 2 weeks back and the birds that were there are, Open billed stork, Painted stork, Grey heron, Pond heron, Night heron, Little egret, Cattle egret, Great white egret, Grey pelican, White ibis, Glossy ibis, Spoon bill, Little cormorant and Snake bird. There was not much crowd, so I could watch these varieties one by one with the official binoculars provided by them from the tower. The staff at the tower was knowledgeable and friendly and showed me these birds one by one. There are more bird species that visit Vedanthangal. The best time to visit it is, Feb end to March beginning. That is the time when there will be maximum number of birds with eggs and chicks which can be seen with binoculars.
  • Now a days birds are not coming in large scale like previous year. The population of birds visiting this place reducing year by year. I have been visiting this place for relaxing myself from stress. A good bike ride from Chennai and bird watch from tower for few hours is a very good combo to relax. I would recommend you guys to carry your own binoculars. You will get binoculars their but rents is very high. 100 rupee per hour. Good place to relax
  • Not as much expected small area 1hr is max enough for a walk through completely... Need long distance lens for taking Bird Snaps... Without camera and binoculars (Rent available) waste to visit... But Quiet place to visit for spending time..
  • Very nice place to visit with family, elders and kids enjoy a lot. During week days the place is not crowded, walkway is maintained neatly for every one to walk. There are shops who rents binocular to have closer view of birds. Nice place to visit.
