Sultanpur bird sanctuary, Gurgaon - route info needed.
I am planning a family trip to Sultanpur bird sanctuary.
I have not been able to know the route of this place, its not available in any of the internet maps or even in Google earth. My understanding is that coming towards Rajiv chowk from IFFCO Chown on NH8, one has to take left turn from Rajiv chowk towards badshahpur. And then go straight. But i have also heard that its the other way around, that is to take right from Rajiv chowk and go straight.
Can anyone please let me know the detailed route from IFFCO Chowk/NH 8? Also, what should one carry, any tips etc.

How about trying this - MapmyIndia - maps, directions, and local search across India - just search, print and go!

mapmyindia shows this west of gurgaon, and also provides a route. Not sure if its the best.

Carry your own water though, and of course, binoculars. Enjoy!

Perhaps you'd like to consider the Bharatpur Bird Sanctuary? Better, IMO.

arre yaar. pehle toh iska achaar daalo: (Yahoo! India Maps)!
mujhe ping/call kar dete. hudd ho gayi all over the place, every one is. anup ji - 20 vs 200km mein lotsa difference -
Firstly the route that goes through Rajiv chowk or anywhere else psases through sadar, not the best idea IMO.
The one I loved, is basically taking a left (going to IFFCO) at HH Chowk (today involves a long detour for U turn from IFFCO side), then going straight for 2-3km, then you will see a bridge being made (from what I recall last year). take left, cross it, then straight past that, over the railway crossing and another 10-15km will take you there.
So my useless memory tells - or you could wait till sat morning, and I might just go there
Birds wise, its good for tp, but Okhla is better. For family trip, Botanix da jawaab nahin (just 200m short of Damdama lake, on the right side). PM me if you wanna discuss more
