Bharatpur Tours and Travels

About Bharatpur

The walled town of Bharatpur, in Rajasthan, is just a stone’s throw from the border with the state of Uttar Pradesh. Boasting the massive Lohagarh Fort (built in 1732) plus traditional markets and mosques, it’s a good place to relax, explore and soak up the town's rich cultural heritage. However, the real reason travellers come to Bharatpur is to visit Keoladeo Ghana National Park. The park can be toured on foot or by bicycle rickshaw and during a visit you may be fortunate enough to spot majestic cranes, spoonbills, pink flamingos, white ibises and grey pelicans as well as the birds of prey including vultures, harriers, peregrine falcons and ospreys.
