    Bust stop closest to the park

    Afternoon at the park

    If you are coming by bus to visit the park, then tell the bus conductor to drop you off at Saaras bus stop instead of the Bharatpur bus depot. It will save you a 1km ride back to the park and Saaras is the closest bus stop to the park.

    Railway porters and your bags

    by PeteG Written Feb 12, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    When you are waiting at Bharatpur junction, uniformed porters will try to insist you let them carry your bags onto the train for you. They only charge a few rupees so you think it is worth while.

    In my opinion they cause more chaos than you can imagine. They collected up all the rucksacks of the people in our group and said they would take care of them for us - so far so good. When the train pulled in they just stuffed the bags into a doorway completely jamming it up so no one could get on!

    I promise you it took at least 45 minutes of the journey to get from the next carriage (with unblocked doorway) into our carriage because of the problems with the mountain of bags!

    Once you get on and sit down, the trains are really good though and worth the fight.

    My tip, do it yourself, not for a money saver, but to save your sanity!!!

    Waiting for your train

    Be ready to get on

    If you are lucky enough to have a reserved seat there isn't quite the rush, but if you haven't as soon as the trains start to pull into the station, there is a mad rush to get near a door. This means half the people waiting get onto the track to get onto the train from the other side so don't be worried about people on the tracks.

    Bicycle Rickshaws

    Bicycle Rickshaw at Keoladeo Wildlife Refuge

    The bicycle rickshaws are so inexpensive that I can't even recall bargaining for one. The driver pedals in even strokes and can spot wildlife well too. It's a peaceful way to see a wetland, and I'm sorry this sort of service isn't available in California's wetland wildlife refuges.

    Wheel it down

    by little_calvin Written Apr 8, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    when in bharatpur you can also wheel it down - a bicycle costs just Rs. 25 for the day.

    you can also take a rickshaw for Rs. 50 an hour.

    getting inside the park costs just Rs. 25 per person. its a little more for foreigners.

    Bus Ride to Bharatpur

    This is a shot of the bus that took us into Bharatpur. . .it's very common to see trains and buses piled high with people in Rajasthan.

    Considering the roads and driving, it's not a risk I'd ever take ~ thankfully, the drivers always seemed to insist that we had "proper" seats.
