 NALSAROVAR

The Nalsarovar bird sanctuary, 54 kms from Ahmedabad and connected by State transport buses with the city, offers one the most pleasant trips out of Ahmedabad, but tends to get crowded on sundays. The sanctuary mainly comprises a huge lake of  about  100  sq kms, and ambient marshes where you can see flamingoes, pelicans, , geese, cranes, storks, ibises, spoonbill, wading birds, swallows, fishing eagles, osprey, harriers and in great numbers.

Flamingoes

The islands of the lake are populated by migrating Bharwad shepherds and on the banks are the Padhars,  who  are excellent folk dancers, artisans and boatmen. You can hire country boats on the lake for birdviewing, and picnic at shacks the on the islands. If you are making the trip to Nalsarovar your own or private hired vehicle , you can lunch at the KP farm at Sanand, which has a swimming pool, children's amusement park and other facilities,  and  enjoy  the Goyal  waterpark. There is  a  forest  department  guest house  at Nalsarovar. Some  resorts  are  coming up near  the bird  sanctuary.Another bird sanctuary is Thol, 32 Kms from Ahmedabad.
