Keoladeo National Park, Bharatpur

#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.
