What to See
Keoladeo National Park or Bharatpur National Park: The Park is one of the most spectacular avifauna sanctuaries in the country and some of the rarest and the most endangered birds can be spotted here. It is home to over 375 species of birds and also attracts several migratory birds, including the rare Siberian Crane. Other popular species include cormorants, darter, purple and grey heron, egrets, open-billed, white necked and black necked stork, white ibis, spoonbill and night heron. Apart from birds, a number of wildlife species can also be spotted here including the Golden Jackal, Striped Hyena, Blackbuck and Wild Boar. A wide variety of reptiles and pythons can also be seen in the Park. Take a cycle ride across the Park to explore the wilderness or explore it by a boat ride across the lake.
Wildlife: The Corbett Tiger Reserve is the best place to catch some of the best views of the magnificent predator. Summer is the best time to watch them when they flock to the water edges. Other than tigers, different species of deer can be seen in the reserve. The Sloth Bear, Himalayan Black Bear, Jackal, Indian Grey Mongoose, Common Otter, Porcupine, are the other wildlife species found in the park. An interesting way to explore the grasslands would be on the elephant, with the mahout (elephant rider) helping you explore the park to the fullest. Other than animals, there are over 580 species of birds and various reptiles, including the long-nosed crocodile, and a few species of turtles and tortoises. The Indian python and viper, along with the king cobra can also be spotted in the park. If you are looking to explore the park more conveniently, hire a jeep from Ramnagar. Get the services of a tour guide, who is adept at recognizing warning notes from other animals and knowing the habits of animals. You must merge as much as you can with the natural surroundings. This would include wearing earthy tones, avoiding strong perfumes, keeping noise to the minimum and disposing trash properly. Remember to carry your binoculars for that closer look!
Ramnagar: Located on the outskirts of the park, this little market town is used as the base for exploring the reserve. It also forms an excellent base camp for fishing in the Kosi, Ramganga, Madal and Kothri rivers. You can hire a fishing rod from the locals or get it arranged from the resorts.
