    Bird watcher's paradise

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Haleji lake is an ideal refuge for wintering and home of thousands of birds and regarded as one of the most important wintering areas of migratory waterfowl in Eurasia. Haleji is a bird watcher's paradise. As many as 223 bird species have been recorded in the environs of Haleji lake. For instance, osprey, Pallas's fish eagle, Buzzards, Harriers, falcons, Wigeon, coot, shoveller, pintail, Teals, Mallard, heron, Jacana, flamingos and some times Bewick's swan, all form a marvelous sight for a bird watcher.

    The bird season starts early November and lasts till March.

    Seeking all Anglers

    Haleji Lake, a man-made reservoir, is situated about 80 km from Karachi. From this lake drinking water is supplied to Karachi. When this lake was commissioned, the architects placed large pipes around the lakes, giving any fisherman an abode to camp over-night to start their activity early.

    Beware of the lurking crocodiles. Locals say there are still some left, lurking around the lake, but I feel these crocs are more scared of the most vicious animal – human.

    No basic provisions are available, so bring all your stuff along with you.

    Equipment: Food
    Bait
    Rods/lines
    Camping stuff
