Folks, we bring you some of the best places and wildlife parks.
The best part about wildlife photography is that it gives you a different perspective of everything that you see. Whether it’s about capturing a herd of elephants or your dog playing in the backyard, you will learn to play with your lenses. In the listed places, you can not only just do some photography but will fall in love with the surroundings as well.
Jim Corbett National Park
This is one of the oldest national parks in India. The main reason for establishing this park in Nainital district of Uttarakhand is to save the Tiger King of Bengal.
It lies at the foot of the Ramganga River in the foothills of the Himalayas. To date, the site has been recorded by over 500 birds, over 25 reptiles and over 50 species of mammals. Some areas of the park are only open from November 16th to June 15th, but many areas can also be visited during the summer.
Salim Ali Bird Sanctuary
A partial mangrove habitat declared a Bird Sanctuary in honour of India’s leading ornithologist. It’s a real treat for bird watchers. This place is covered with mangroves and prior permission from the Panjim Wildlife Department is required before visiting this place. In addition to birds, foxes, jackals, crocodiles and many other mammals or reptiles can be found here. Some of the birds seen here are eagles, kingfishers, herons, woodpeckers, Brahmin kites, osprey, curlews, sandpiper, red-billed hoopoe and hoopoe etc. There are no roads inside the shrine, so you can only visit it by boat.
You can imagine the diversity as Sikkim together with the highlands of Nepal, Bhutan and Tibet make up more than 32% of India’s total bird population. If you are looking for the most surreal birding destination in India, your search ends here.
Breathtaking landscapes will give you unique moments. If you want to see Satyr Tragopan, one of the rarest species of pheasant, you can visit Maenam Wildlife Sanctuary, 65 km from Gangtok.
