Bhigwan Bird Watching and Boat Ride By Trekdi


About This Tour

Bhigwan is a small town around 100 kms away from Pune and is also referred to as the “Bharatpur of Maharashtra”, as it becomes a hotbed of migratory birds during the winter.
Bhigwan is at one end of the huge Yashwant Sagar reservoir, forming the backwaters of the Ujain dam. One of the main attractions during the migratory season is the arrival of the pink greater flamingos.
During the months of early jan – late feb, this place is thronged by bird lovers from all over Maharashtra.
Mayureshwar Sanctury is one of best places to visit for birding. The place is famous for Chinkara's.
