Barkhera Pelicans

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.

Pelicans at Barkhera near Jaipur

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.

  1. There is so much to a place….. Everytime I read your new post I am reminded how little I have seen of Jaipur….. When I do visit Jaipur again as a ‘traveller’ shall revisit your blogs to make my itinerary ☺……

    1. It sure is. As a tourist we have different agenda. Also when one is resident, he or she has opportunity to visit at the most opportune time, which a tourist or traveler can’t. this is an old post BTW
