Any one planning for bharatpur in dec & what is the best time to visit to witness sarus crane? Dec or feb

Mohit Srinivasan I think mid December will be the best time. For budget stay you should consider Iora Lodge / Sanctuary Tourist Lodge. I have numbers of some good guides, if you need let me know

Gaurav Sinha Make sure to go to sunset point.. can get crowded but great for silhouettes. There are a few spots where saras cranes are seen.. whenever spotted, can lead to loads of people / photographers huddling together

Most thrilling experience to witness Himalayan Black Bear in the wild... Thnx to Safarist, me & Ranjith from Safarist who joined for that trip.
The first time we saw the bear, it was at a distance. Maybe, it sensed our presence and moved back inside the forest. These bears love oak trees and come out to forage. We moved away and when we came back 30 mins later, the bear was sitting right on that spot! Face to face with a Himalayan black bear on foot - it is difficult to describe what we were feeling. Nazir Malik sir had instructed us before our trek to move without sound only when the bear was feeding and to click pictures only when the bear is looking at us. We simply followed his instructions and the bear carried on feeding, while exchanging glances every now and then. These are dangerous animals and with the experience of Nazir sir that we were able to react to the situation well.
