Just a 1 hour drive down from Agra, this is a perfect destination for the wildlife enthusiasts. It is a habitat of some of the most endangered species, but the main attraction here are, Gharial, Red crowned turtles, Gangetic Dolphins, Indian skimmers, among others.
The beautiful sanctuary is surrounded by the Chambal river, known to be one of the cleanest river of India. It provides you a combination of a unique and unpolluted habitat, abundant wildlife and amazing landscapes, medieval temples and magnificent ancient ruins, animal fairs and naga sadhus, far far away from the chaos of the city. Tourists usually rent a motorized boat and go up and down the river as it flows through the ravines which makes for a serene experience. The boatmen are excellent at maneuvering as close to the birds and animals as possible without disturbing them to give you the opportunity to sight beautiful animals.
Trained wildlife experts can also accompany visitors and provide expert information on the wildlife. Walks around the river and ravines are also organized which makes for an exciting yet serene experience especially during mornings and evenings.
It is not only a wildlife lovers' and a birdwatcher's paradise, but also the perfect place to go to to take a leisure break.
