  • Awesome place for birder's.. must visit place to watch migratory birds. Best to visit during weekdays rather than weekend to avoid crowd. In case you need a wheelchair, please ask for the same at the ticket counter. It is very thoughtful gesture of Forest department to facilitate this!! 5 stars for the staff for keeping the place clean.
  • One of the most memorable experience to cherish. A must visit place for bird lovers and nature enthusiasts. A serene place with spellbinding views all around. The boat ride was awesome, saw many varieties of migratory birds and crocodiles at close quarters. The water runs very deep so be careful with the kids. No worries otherwise as the ride is very safe and secure with life jacket provided to everyone including kids. Don't miss the hanging bridge and top view point. January to April is the best time to visit.
