Lakes and water bodies in and around Jaipur start buzzing with activity soon after the monsoon season. In October, migratory birds from Asia and Europe start arriving at lakes near Jaipur and elsewhere in Rajasthan. Barkhera and Chandali lake are great places for migratory birds in Jaipur. These lakes become home for migratory birds during winters.
Barkhera, located about 30 Km south of Jaipur has a small water body, a marshland which attracts many migratory birds like Heron, Bar Headed Goose, Flamingos, and Rosy Pelican as well as Dalmatian Pelicans.
It’s common to spot avid Jaipur birders in Barkhera in the morning as well as in evenings. Barkhera is surely a must-visit place for those who are into Birding! It is one of the hidden places in Jaipur.
