Rajasthan Bird Tourism in Winters



This is going to be a fantastic winter season because vast areas of the Rajasthan’s bird sanctuaries are flooded – including parts that were dry in previous years. Ducks and waders have only just started trickling in, but there is already an unmistakable buzz about the place.

Rajasthan’s lakes, ponds, marshlands and grasslands are a haven for bird lovers. One can find around 550 species of birds and most of these are residents.


The Sambhar lake, near ‪Jaipur, has started witnessing thousands of‪ flamingos and more than 71 species of other migratory birds from around the world, as the ‪winter season reaches its peak!

It is truly a paradise of feathered life which provides unlimited opportunities to bird watchers. Various other lakes and ponds spread over the state offer the enthusiast opportunity to watch the activities of the birds.

The major wetlands other than the most popular Bharatpur are Kukas, Kalah, Bund, Buchora Chandii, Chhaparwara and Ramgarh in Jaipur, Siliserh, Jaisamand and Mansarover in Alwar, Ana Sagar and Fatehsagar in Ajmer, Jaisamand, Pichhola and Badi Ka Talab in Udaipur, Balsamand and Sardar Samand in Jodhpur, Bassi Dam in Chittaurgarh and Meja Dam in Bhilwara.

So, wait no more and go for  a bird watching spree as this is a hobby which has minimum requirements. …. All you need is a binocular!!

  1. Raj Tourism Buzz has really introduced me to a new idea of vacation. I would like to visit Rajasthan just to view the Flamingos in the Sambhar lake. I have always had an inclination to ornithology in my childhood days.
