Bharatpur : Women-Only

Bharatpur

Detailed itinerary: https://www.transformingtravels.com/tour/bharatpur-women-only/ Bharatpur Bird Sanctuary, the bird paradise of India, is a green wildlife oasis located in the unbelievable barren land of Rajasthan. As one takes a laid back rickshaw ride through the trails of the sanctuary, the mind of the wanderer is treated with a therapeutic chirping of birds, the cold air, and the fresh smell of greenery. Disconnecting from all the stresses of life, for a few hours, one can simply focus on playing hide and seek with those colorful birds of Bharatpur Bird Sanctuary. As the sun goes down and the birds begin to fly towards their nests, their black silhouettes striking against the golden reddish sky makes a perfect fairytale sight. Bharatpur Bird Sanctuary, now known as Keoladeo Ghana National Park, is one of the most important bird breeding and feeding grounds in the world. In the 1850s, the Bharatpur Bird Sanctuary originated as a royal hunting ground for the Maharajas of Bharatpur followed by a tradition of “hunting parties”. These hunting parties were organized in the honor of British viceroys where ducks were shot as a part of the ritual. One of the darkest incidents which came to the limelight happened in Keoladeo National Park in 1938, where more than 4000 birds were shot in a single day by Lord Linlithgow, the former Governor-General and the Viceroy of India. Did you know that Keoladeo National Park is home to 370 species of birds? What makes it even more interesting is that numerous birds come flying to Keoladeo all the way from Siberia, China, Afghanistan, and Turkmenistan in the winter season. Trip Highlights 1. Keoladeo National Park 2. Deeg Palace 3. Lohagarh Fort 4. Keoladeo Shiva Temple 5. Bharatpur Government Museum 6. Unforgettable Social Experience 7.
