This place is heaven when visited early in the morning. It is advisable to keep your eyes open and your not your mouth that you can spot a lot of birds. If you make noise then birds will fly away. So make silence and make fun by watching different water bird. This place is also ideal for photographer. Must visit.

Also, during winter, you can see migratory birds which makes for... More

Mornings & evenings are the best time to visit. You can see seasonal birds. Recently we saw the flamingos. Good walking track & also can go towards the grasslands if no water is there as water pockets are scattered. This makes awesome for the photographers. Don't miss the sunset. Car ticket is 500 RS. Per car & entry per person... More
