February 26, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 128

A miracle as it seems, this wetland of bird paradise is not so far from Delhi as you'd like to believe it is. Its near vicinity to the city poses an added attraction for the city dwellers, who always like to get away from the human jungle into a real paradise of innocent tree dwelling creatures. It seems that locals and humans are not the only ones who are drawn to the spacious wetland off the Gurgaon district in Haryana, India. The flock of migrants with their myriad coloured feathers and their curious habits and dwelling places are a source of immense delight and curiosity to the ardent bird lover.

Driving away from Delhi, one finds the Sultanpur National Park just an hour away about 15km away from Guragon district. Once the hunting grounds of the influent, these lands which become drenched and soaked with the monsoons was converted to a bird sanctuary in 1971, owing to the dedication and requests made by one Dr. Ali. The venue was then termed a National Park in 1991. Previously maintained by the torrential pour of the monsoons, of late, these grounds show a pattern of converting to grassy land.

For those who are looking out for a glimpse of special birds, the kingfisher, purple sunbird and night heron are some of the few varieties while the foreign visitors include bands of common ducks, Nothern Shovellers and a great variety of Storks and Spoonbills. While the park is famous also as a picnic place for Delhi residents, there are four watch towers scattered in the corners, exclusively for bird watching. There is also an education centre as well as a library and films and slides for the eager bird enthusiast. One can only hope fervently that the marshy land would hold up, and retain those admirable visitors from around world.

Anyone visiting this park close to Delhi would also get the chance to have a glimpse of some fabulous Luxury Hotels Delhi.
