Egret at Sultanpur


Sultanpur National Park & Bird Sanctuary is located in Gurgaon district of Haryana, 46 kms. from Delhi and 15 kms. from Gurgaon on the Gurgaon – Farukh Nagar Road. September to February is a good time to visit for birdwatching. Days will be pleasant, though nights may be cold. In north India, indigenous species of water birds are normally known to feed and nest around September-October, while the migrants visit around November. At Sultanpur, both varieties may be seen around November, which is the ideal time for a visit. The jheel is partially filled during these months, and the birds find adequate food in the shallow waters. Sultanpur is NCR Birding Capital and an awesome weekend destination.

Accommodation is available at the Rosy Pelican complex run by Haryana Tourism at the edge of the lake. There are family cottages as well as air-conditioned individual rooms. A restaurant and bar is located within the complex.

Another option is to stay at one of the numerous hotels, lodges or guesthouses in Delhi and plan a day trip to the Sultanpur jheel.
