SAMBHAR LAKE - India's Largest Inland Salt Lake (Ramsar Site) | Feat. 04813 Jodhpur - Bhopal Special click here
.
When we speak of Rajasthan, all we can think of is Jaipur, Jaisalmer, Jodhpur and Udaipur! While all these places are supremely stunning and colourful, there are still some equally gorgeous destinations in the state which are still waiting to be explored. One such place here is Sambhar Salt Lake, situated about 80 km southwest of Jaipur. Most of the people might not be aware of the fact that it is also India's

largest inland salt lake, which makes it extra special.
.
Sambhar Salt Lake in Rajasthan is 80 km from Jaipur and 65 km from Ajmer, and envelopes the beautiful and historical Sambhar Lake Town. This inland lake receives water from five rivers, namely Samaod, Khari, Mantha, Khandela, Medtha, and Roopangarh. The area occupied by this lake differs from season to season, so roughly it is between 190 and 230 sq km.
.
Also, being an extensive saline wetland, the depth of the lake also fluctuates from season to season. During peak summers (dry time), the depth measures as low as 60 cm (24 in) but during the monsoons, it goes up to 3 m (10 ft).
.
Sambhar has been designated as a Ramsar site (recognized wetland of international importance) because the wetland is a key wintering area for tens of thousands of pink flamingos and other birds that migrate from northern Asia and Siberia. The specialized algae and bacteria growing in the lake provide striking water colours and support the lake ecology that, in turn, sustains the migrating waterfowl. There is other wildlife in the nearby forests, where Nilgai move freely along with deer and foxes.

Mature political discussions are allowed in the Topics section,...
