Excursion to Surual Lake – Exploring Winter’s Paradise

Surual is a shallow lake situated in Ranthambhore district of Sawai Madhopur. Approximately 10 kms from the main city, this seasonal lake boasts of a charming location amidst acres of lush agricultural fields. Offering the perfect spots for bird watching, this lake is recommended for its serenity and tranquillity. Early mornings, before the sun has the chance to awaken the world from slumber, keen bird watchers make their way to this charming lake, especially in the months in between November and March. This is the season when there is an overabundance of avifauna. Prepare to be wowed by the painted storks, spoonbills, flamingos, greylag geese, saras and demoiselle cranes that strut around the lakes banks, swim in the blue waters or fly in the sky in perfect formations. Camera in hand, get clicking away to capture these colourful birds on screen as the sun offers the perfect lighting and fields a magnificent canvass to develop the ideal pictures. Even if you aren’t an avid bird watcher and observing birds in their native habitat isn’t something you look forward to as a leisure activity, a trip to Surual Lake can change your perception on that. Looking beyond the regions birds, you could just sit on the embankment, indulge in a bit of yoga or spread out a picnic and watch the sun work its magic on the surrounds.  As children run alongside the lake shore, playing with glee, shut your eyes and eavesdrop on the distinct calls of the native birds and feel absolute bliss overtake you. Still undetected by tourists, this locale is the perfect place to spend an early morning or lazy afternoon in the winter months. With the onset of the scorching April sun, the waters of the lake dry up, leaving remnants of the magical winter wonderland behind.
