WHAT MAKES MAGPIE SPECIAL FOR WILDLIFE & BIRDS?

Wildlife

It is located on the outskirts of Sonanadi Sanctuary.
If you want to see the wild elephants & tigers in their true habitat then Halduparao is the best destination to visit.

The entry gate to Halduparao is Vatanvasa (7 km from Magpie). Halduparao is one of the oldest rest houses, built more than hundred years ago. It is situated between Sonanadi River and Palain River just before they both merge into the Ramganga reservoir.


Birds

More than 500 species of birds have been recorded in the area. One can have excellent birding opportunities in the lodge itself. Besides, there are numerous walks through the terrace fields into wooded oak and pine forest which are extremely rewarding. Please visit www.junglelore.com or write to us for a complete birding tour.
