Probably You Haven’t Seen
A less chaotic Delhi, less crowded, more greener, and more peaceful Delhi. Believe it or not, such a Delhi also exists! It’s called Rural Delhi and I’d like to show it to you on a cycling tour.
Tour - Cycling to Sultanpur Bird Sanctuary
Now, let’s get down to the nitty gritty. We’ll start the ride in the wee hours, approximately 6.30 a.m., and ride along a water body. About 15 kms later, the scenic water body will end and we’ll hit a road that does have traffic. For safety reasons, we’ll take a car from here and drive for 10 minutes to the sanctuary.
At the sanctuary, some of the birds you’ll see are resident birds, such as Black francolin, Indian roller, White-throated kingfisher, Spotbill, and Painted stork, and migratory birds, such as Siberian Crane, Greater Flamingo, Ruff, and Black-winged Stilt. For more details on the sanctuary, refer to Sultanpur National Park.
Black-necked Stork at Sultanpur Bird Sanctuary
At the sanctuary, you’ll see migratory birds and grab a bite. About 2 hours later, we’ll head back to a low-traffic path and cycle our way through some villages and farming fields.
Tour – Cycling to Search for Nilgai
Similar to the Sultanpur Bird Sanctuary ride, this route involves low density traffic. You’ll pass through farming fields and enter a little reserve. In this reserve, the Nilgai antelope runs wild. They are very elegant creatures to watch. This ride is much less strenuous than the ride to the Sultanpur Bird Sanctuary.
All routes are customizable and dependent on how much you want to ride and what you'd like to experience and see.
The price includes bike rental and cycle lead time. Accommodation, very close to the airport and connected by the Metro Rail, is also available.
