Morning at Khimsar was superb (please check previous BLOG / VIDEO), and with the fresh mood, we started our journey for Tal Chappar. It took us roughly 3 hours to reach here even though we oped a longer route so we can see some interiors of Rajasthan and we enjoyed those empty roads with desert on both sides. The sight of chinkaras also kept us busy.
We had booked Raptors Inn for stay at Tal chappar. Its a guest house with all facilities. A homely environment with fresh and delicious food. After having lunch, we straight away went to the gates of Tal chappar. Mr. Atul, the owner of Raptors Inn has a gypsy which, we hired along with the driver who was also our guide for this place.
There is an entrance fee here at the gates and for three of us Rs. 165/- and for our gypsy car 220/- was charged.
ABOUT TAL CHAPPAR
Now let me tell you about Tal chappar. Well, I feel birds lovers and wildlife photographers must know this place. However, if you never heard about it or yet not visited here so far, you will be my best audience.
Tal chappar sanctuary is at Churu district of Rajasthan, well known for its Blackbucks. I feel they are the most handsome antelopes and were classified in "near threatened" species and hence protected under wildlife protection.
Along with, there are chinkaras, desert fox, wild boar, blue bull aka Neal Gaye, and this place is now getting famous for serious bird lovers.
We could not see much variety of them as we came here in March, which is a kind of season when most of the migratory birds fly away.
However, we still found some and clicked some shots of them.
