  • This is my first time to a bird sanctuary so I was excited but I was not expecting much From this small bird sanctuary. This place is completely covered with dens tree which is great for birds. Once you entered into it you will feel like you are in some beautiful jungle and you will continuously hear the birds sweet noise. It's a great place for photographer as well as nature lover. I went with my canon 250mm zoom lens but it would be better to take 600mm or more if you have. Entry fee is 50 for adult No parking fee which is great No charges for camera Totally worth it Recommended place for bird photographer and nature lover.

  • An early morning visit should be the priority timing. Could stay there for a short period and spotted four different species of birds. While passing through the trails different birds were chirping in varying tunes and flying from one branch to the other. This unfailingly adds to the entire experience. Cherished!

  • It's a calm, peaceful place esp for those who loves nature. If u are lucky u can view some rare birds. Overall a good place to hike and relax but cannot do picnic or carry food inside. Also there is no place to sit one has to keep walking

  • So adventure is there... Especially in this spring.. U have keep silence there and just listen the nature.. Especially in morning hours.. You will feel the thrill when you keep a binocular with you during visit. Just awesome.

  • As the name suggest it is a sanctuary for birds, but was little disappointed as could not see any with bare eyes. It is nice place to visit for an hour or two may be on holidays but would say not value for money that have to pay for entering. There is no provision for physically challenged people so need to carry wheelchair. Things I liked, it was a quite place and lots of green. Would suggest not to carry any food as it might make the place dirty but should carry water if planning for long hours.
