Experience the excitement of a boat ride that takes you within an arm’s length of the birds as the crocodiles bathe in the sun.From june to november migratory birds come here and build nests here on the 750m high island.The most common birds  are  Openbilled Storks, Black Cormorants, River Terns, Painted Storks, Little Egrets, Night Herons, Spot billed Pelicans, Darters.Apart from birds u can also find here mammals like Bonnet Macaque, Monitor Lizard, Flying Box, Indian Gray Mangoose etc.The best season to come this sanctuary is december because the migratory birds are visible at this time only.
