Sultanpur covers 1.5 sq km and was declared a bird sanctuary in 1971 and was upgraded to the status of national park in 1991 by the Haryana Government. This is an ideal birding spot; large numbers of migratory species arrive each year. The habitat is a mix of wetland, woodland and grassland.

This morning we will fly to Jaisalmer, a legendary desert city that brings to life the images of an Arabian Nights fable. Improbably sited in the midst of a harsh desert terrain, the city is steeped in history and was sustained for centuries by the camel caravans bringing traders from other parts of India and the Middle East. In the afternoon we will go to the Magistrate’s office to obtain permits for visiting the Desert National Park.
We leave early in the morning today for an excursion to the Desert National Park. A visit here provides an excellent way of seeing the Thar Desert’s unique ecosystem and rich fauna at first hand. We will see a variety of desert landscapes, including sand dunes (these form less than 20 per cent of the Park), craggy rocks, pavements and compact salt lake bottoms, intermedial areas and fixed dunes. The Sudashri forest post is one of the best places to observe wildlife in the Desert National Park and will be one of our first destinations. . We will return in evening to Jaisalmer.
Third day enjoy the full day sightseeing tour of the city. One of the main attractions here is the daunting 12th century Jaisalmer Fort. The beautiful ‘havelis’ (private residences) which were built by wealthy Jaisalmer merchants are yet another interesting aspect of the desert city. The desert citadel is truly a golden fantasy in the Thar Desert. The Bhatti Rajput (‘Bhatti’ is a term used for a Rajput caste of warriors and horse riders) ruler Rawal Jaisal, after whom the city is named, founded Jaisalmer in 1156. In Medieval times, the prosperity of the city was due to its location on the main trade route linking India to Egypt, Arabia, Persia, Africa and the West. The Bhatti Rajput rulers accumulated their wealth by imposing taxes on the caravan traders and sometimes illegally by rustling cattle. There are many reminders of Jaisalmer’s colourful history in the city architecture and we will have ample time to see these during our exploration

This is probably the single best location in the world to observe these graceful cranes, which annually complete a remarkable migration across the Himalayan massif.

Situated on a high rocky outcrop that overlooks the walled city, from here you can see the iconic azure shade that the city's buildings have been painted.
