About The Event

who doesn't love a walk along a river with lush greens and chirping of birds. With it said, we now bring our another walk along with natural trails of yamuna river, a much needed breathable pocket of fresh air away from the city.

A total of 302 species have confirmed records from Okhla bird sanctuary and the areas in its immediate vicinity. An additional 27 species have been listed by Harris (2001) as probable, but unconfirmed, occurrence. In January 2011, as a part of Asian Waterbird Census 2011, a leucistic coot, known for its unusual bright white plumage, was spotted with the flock of common coots, for the first time in India.[8] The sanctuary hosts over 400 species year round and over 1 lakh migratory birds in winter months. It hosts 30% of the 1200 to 1300 bird species recorded in the Indian sub-continent.

camera for personal use is free while professional camera is charged at 500 rs per entry. a basic DSLR is not counted in professional camera but as you might know the gate keepers are often clueless about what camera is what. they allow DSLR with basic kit lens but sometimes we have to argue with them. but if you are not planning to shoot a lot then dont carry camera.
