Visited Thattekad Bird Sanctuary last week of March 2017. Our primary Objective was to see and photograph as many birds we can. Even tough we have chosen kind of off-season to visit, we were not disappointed at all. We captured many colorful birds we haven't see before. Place is awesome and a paradise for bird/nature lovers & photographers alike. We... 更多
Get in there early, you can go in before the 7.00 opening and pay when you come out if you talk to the ticket office the day before. Racket-tailed Drongos everywhere, and plenty of unusual birds around if your luck is in. The trails can be done without a guide.
This is advertised as one of the most outstanding bird sanctuaries in India. Unfortunately we had only been in the park 10 minutes and there was torrential rain. We managed to walk through the butterfly sanctuary which had some beautiful flowers. We came back the next day having booked on a tour - this is recommended as the guides know... 更多
One of the best bird sanctuaries so far.. Situated close to Kothamangalam, Kerala, Thattekad Bird Sanctuary is easily accessible by road and a place one could see birds throughout the year. Be prepared to walk, hours and hours one could wander through the park. Carry a binocular to see some of the smaller birds high on the tree tops. If... 更多
Fantastic location , I went on 4 walks with Vinod from Bird songs Homestay, an excellent guide and fantastic birding. You have to pay for trips in to the sanctuary 175 rupees and 500 rupees for the 2 different locations. Highly recommended for nature lovers and birders I didn't venture into the zoo which was very limited.
We were fortunate to stay at the Jungle Bird Homestay during our two full day visit to Salim Ali Bird Sanctuary. The variety of birds to be found is truly amazing. The trails are well maintained and for the most part can be managed by all with little difficulty (except to keep hydrated). Especially appreciated were the large posters with... 更多
Wow. Just Wow. We saw between 40-50 birds here with amazing colours. Take binoculars. It was spectacular. We saw drongos, bee eaters, open bill storks, kingfishers, jungle babblers, shrike,bulbuls, flycatchers, etc etc. The sanctuary is well worth diverting for a visit. It's really near to the Hornbill tented camp which we stayed at. The highlight of our trip.
'Outstanding' is probably nowhere near good enough to describe this amazing place. You can tell as soon as you arrive that there is something special about the place! The most hearty welcome, the beaming smiles, the clean and tidy appearance of the buildings and staff, all this in the midst off a beautifully natural setting. We stayed for 3 nights... 更多
The sanctuary by itself is very nice, and has 100's of birds. The reason why I choose to mark this 3 stars instead of 5, is because of the unruly groups that come in a create so much of noise. Large families come in and scream through the trail, scaring all the birds away. The place has so much potential,... 更多
