As one boards the train to Tal Chappar from a quiet railway station in Delhi Cantt , one is quite oblivious to the small journeys you encounter on your way . A 6-7 hour journey lands you in one of the smallest railway stations which you can ever see.A short drive takes you to the government guest house which is... More

Also for some serious photographers even the deep summers in May-June which is mating time for Black Bucks... More

Place the stunningly beautiful, amazing -especially for photography lovers. Actually this is a place only for real bird lovers & avid photographers. Place is like a small village with hardly any good facility. Except the guest house from Rajasthan Forest Dept. Guesthouse looks nice, decently maintained,clean, peaceful and courteous staff. Little expensive though. No TV in rooms, no telephone with... More

A tiny sanctuary but in terms of sightings of rare birds probably the best place in this part of India. Great place to see raptors during migration and a host of passerines and waders in winter

There are hardly any grasslands left in plains. This is a patch of grassland that has survived by quirk of luck. It is a unique place. It has a small saline lake after which it gets name taal chhapar (Tal is a pond). Salt extraction is still done on periphery of protected area. I need not repeat that you can... More

The forest dept runs a guest house here. I was informed that it has been leased out to someone. I cannot verify the same as I did not... More
