A boating into the lake with a guide will be thrilling for two reasons. One-we will get as closer to birds nesting and two – the silent prowl of crocodiles on the river adds to the thrill. If one is lucky, one can also watch crocodile catching its prey. The sky is always colorful here, with painted storks taking flight from one branch to another.

One can view atleast 3 dozen variety of birds anytime. Do go early, to have fun.

The place is well maintained and if you provide tips to the boatman, he can show the best places around the lake.
