Entry queue is long and even after paying for the boat, you will not be shown anything. The people who take you on boat rides will ask you for more money around 5000₹ extra and you will have to bargain to actually see the migratory birds. I don't think it is worth it. As it is a bird sanctuary, it... More

The Sanctuary is live example of nature's abundance being looted by human greed. The lake is clean and beautiful however, the local guides actually misguide the tourists by charging extremely unfair prices for the boats. Moreover, the site lacks basic facilities like clean toilets or restaurant. The welcome relief is the local food available on the island, again not for... More

It was my unplanned visit. We reached there by 12:15. After purchasing entry pass ( 85/- per head. Children 50%discount) we were taken by eco car of safari. Lake water is nice and clean. Only 4 ft deep. Took boat ride. If you book at entry counter they don't show you properly. If you pay more ( after bargain) you... More

Do visit this place if you are simply looking for weekend recreation. Do not visit if your are a serious bird-watcher, especially on Sundays. The place has everything that one should not find in wildlife sanctuaries: Swarms of tourists with absolutely no regulation on the number of tourists allowed into the lake per day, boats going right up to flocks...

The Lake is huge but not deep, so you can get around on flat-bottomed boats. An amazing variety of birds can be seen in and around the site. There's an Island over there and some local women serve some awesome Kathiwaad Food there itself. You can have a full meal for Rs 150 pp. Got the boat rides at the... More

This place is just 65 Km from Ahmadabad and very well connected by the road. Hence it was at least a good morning drive. As soon as you reach the place, you would be surrounded by touts quoting some crazy rate for the 'special package'. It was not worth at least in the monsoon season. I might once again give... More

If you are a traveller and you are searching of some natural beauty, visit this place. During season many migrating birds come here and you will get a wide variety of birds.
