It is great place for picnic with friends or family. Good trekking trail for beginners. The sunrise is amazing from the hilltop. One should visit this bird sanctuary during monsoon for amazing views and exotic birds. Extra charges for using DSLR and bird watching so plan accordingly.

Good day outing. Treat this as a nature trail rather than bird spotting.
Food was simple and enjoyed the batata wada and misal pav.
There is a Fort which can be reached via a 1.5 hr trek and for that, one has ro reach Karnala before 1 p.m.

All in all, a good day outing with children.

Visited Karnala Bird Sanctuary to participate in Bird Count organised by forest department and Green Works Trust. Located just outside the Mumbai Limits near panvel. Sanctuary has an historical remains of Karnala Fort.

The sanctuary is classified under IBA (Important Bird Area).100+ birds species can be found here.

It's quite a popular destination for bird watchers and trekkers. The jungle of Karnala is quite dense, and not very large.

There is Small restaurant run by Local females group... The food was excellent in taste and quite reasonably priced.

Note to the visitors- When visiting any natural forest area, kindly please keep clean and do not throw plastic or anything with in the area, use garbage bins.

Today i.e. 27th September we drove to Karnala Bird Sanctuary and it is closed due to COVID restrictions.

Pls do not drive thinking it is open, it is closed.

Prior to Covid it is open on all days as per the guard at the gate.

Tip:

The exit on the highway is a small left one without any signage so turn on the maps and then take the exit. We had overshot it and then had to reverse, be careful as no signage and we were using Maps.

It is a good place to trek but be ready to face broken railing and dangerous steps in some parts. No view of birds at all.

Karnala Bird Sanctuary is all green during monsoons and provides excellent walk in jungle. Although not many birds during rainy season, the overall experience is good.

Restaurant in the vicinity needs improvement.

I had been longing to visit this place for a long time. Since I love birds and butterflies, I was in paradise. There are 2 things which you can do at this place, either enjoy nature walk or go for a hike till the fort.

Being a nature lover and did not want to hike, I chose to walk amongst many nature trails that are at the base of the fort. Found many butterflies, birds and spiders. I definitely recommend carrying binoculars and a camera for your excursion.

Also do carry some food and lots of water but beware where you choose to sit for snack as there are monkeys and langurs around. There are also some eating houses run by local ladies, you can choose to have snack there as well but don't go hungry at 8am and expect them to be open, these places open after 10am.

Yes there are entry fees, parking and camera charges.

Until next time, see you soon.

I couldn't see any birds rather than caged birds, but you can listen bird chirp while trekking to and fro fort. It took more than 2 1/2 hours to reach fort by walk. Try to reach before 11:00 am or before that. It's advisable to return back before 4:00 pm from fort and per person need to carry 2 Liters of water. For Plastic Bottles and wrappers need to keep 100 rs. deposits at the gate . If you reach gate before 5 pm, deposits are returned otherwise not. Over all I can say I had a good trip rather than saying great trip.

Located about 50 Km south from Mumbai on the way to Goa from Panvel. Its a absolute haven for bird watchers and nature lovers. One can find it quite inspiring and enjoy treaking right up to the fort. Its a wonderful spot to escape other crowded tourist spots around Mumbai to get some frsh air. Staff operated panty serves lovel tea, fried fish and chicken currry.
