It has been 8 years when we visited this place to celebrate new year eve, but it still feels that I visited this beautiful Bharatpur Bird Sanctuary like yesterday.
Everything was so perfectly planned. After searching for many options (in and around Delhi) to make our year end special, we decided to welcome the upcoming year with the nature, with its natural beauty, serene environment, peaceful atmosphere.
We left early morning and it took us approx. 4.5 hours with the breakfast break in between, to reach the resort. Upon reaching, we got a pleasant surprise that it had so wonderfully prepared itself for all the celebrations for the evening. Born fire, Folk Music, Puppet Show, Open air dinner set up…etc It was looking so vibrant and beautiful.
Post our lunch, we left for Bird Watching Safari. There we hired a cycle rickshaw (not sure if it is still available or replaced by battery operated) to see different birds in the sanctuary. Our rickshaw operator cum guide provided us with detailed information on all the variety of birds we saw. It is a paradise for bird lovers and photographers. You can also walk on the path if you wished to and have that kind of stamina.
After our beautiful bird watching safari tour, we came back to our resort and saw it was fully lit with lights ( like Diwali lightening). It became extremely cold and dark post sunset.
At night we enjoyed our lovely dinner with Rajasthani music and folk dance and welcomed the next year with new resolutions to travel more 🙂
- Though you can visit this place any time of the year but September to February is best as you can see variety of migratory birds in this season.
- It might rain and gets very cold in winters after sunset, so dress accordingly.
- Bharatpur Bird Sanctuary in Rajasthan is definitely a must go place if you are a bird lover or photographer.
