Nalsarovar lake, Gujarat. The bad news is the Flamingos have still not arrived in large nos and the boat mafia is real ,also the rampant fishing. As per the local info, flamingos arrive when the water becomes shallower, may be in the month of April or may. The govt charges for the boat ride is 220/- per person, with 6 in a boat, plus entry charges and parking charges. But the boatman charges extra to row you around and the amount could be anything depending how desperate and gullible you are but 1500-2000/- for a 4-5 hr ride can be a decent bargain. I found one boatman Usman 9537184390 , he worked really hard to show me the birds i came to see. In addition to flamingos, i also saw common water birds,spoon billed , common cranes, saras cranes etc.
Hi, i will be in Ahmedabad for a couple of days and I have this sunday at my disposal. I want to make it to Nalsarovar, need to know if there are any chance for Flamingos this time of the year. Any other general tip regarding other bird species and travel?
