There are several ways to explore the Chambal Sanctuary. You can opt for a camel or jeep safari. The Jeep safari takes you through a network of trails criss-crossing the ravines, river banks, areas of shrub vegetation, laidback villages and the Ater fort.
En route the journey, you will get an opportunity to see the crocodiles, alligators and the Gangetic dolphins that live in the river. The sanctuary is also a major birding destination with more than 300 birds to its credit, and the number seems to be growing every year. Apart from the resident birds you can also see a fair share of migratory birds from Siberia, altitudinal migrants from the higher Himalayas and Palaearctic region. In fact, the sanctuary is listed as an important bird area, IN122.
The jeep safari also takes you to the ancient temple complex at Bateshwar on the river Yamuna. The complex consists of more than a hundred temples dedicated to the Hindu God Shiva.
