Head To Okhla Bird Sanctuary This Weekend For A Serene Experience


    Okhla Bird Sanctuary is a serene, calm, peaceful place filled with trees and a clean lake with migratory birds flocking from everywhere {especially in the spring season}. It’s quite the sight with endless chirping in the background.

    How Was Your Experience?

    I visited the sanctuary on Mar 11. It was sparsely populated and looked pretty as a postcard.  It might be tempting to stay here for the day but I think it might be unsafe to visit after sunset as there isn’t much security and it’s surrounded by a dense forest.

    Anything Else?

    The nearest metro station is Botanical Gardens on the blue line, and then an auto or rickshaw will cost somewhere between INR 50-80. Cars are allowed inside the area and the road is well-maintained.

    The entry fee for the park itself is is INR 30 for Indians and INR 350 for foreigners.


    There is a specific spot which is like a bridge ending up in the lake which is a good place to click photographs.
