To visit only wildlife sanctury in Delhi

Welcome to Asola Bhati Sanctuary

A Landscape Approach

The Asola-Bhatti Wildlife Sanctuary has a unique place in India’s network for protected areas. It is the only protected area representing the northeastern, rolling outliers as a landform of the country’s oldest hill ranges, the Aravallis. Thus it geographically represents a landform not earlier represented in the national P.A. network. This, therefore, is a value of national significance. As a ‘wildlife’ sanctuary it is very different from the popular perception of a sanctuary. The sanctuary covers an area of 32 sq kms and this urban sanctuary could be a role model for all the conservation work undertaken by the Department of Forests & Wildlife GNCT of Delhi.

Neeli Jheel Drive

To truly experience the splendor of Aravalli hills, visitors can obtain permits at the entry gate to take their vehicles to Neeli jheel (14kms). A crystal blue lake deep inside the forest serves as a perfect vantage point for spectacular photographs and out of this world views. The drive to the lake goes through different habitats of the forest showcasing the grasslands and dense jungles of the sanctuary. With Nilgai, Golden Jackals, Spotted Deers seen in plenty, the drive also offers a chance to see the elusive Ruddy mongoose. It makes for a great bird watching trip too, with raptors and migratory winter birds coming to the lake in great numbers. Occasionally, Leopards can also been seen if one is lucky!
