The Taj Nature Walk is situated in a real jungle of pristine flora and fauna near the right bank of the River Yamuna. A number of butterflies, birds including some rare ones, some kinds of mammals, and children’s play equipment are the main attractions of this huge park. It is located in a rambling green belt spread across 180 hectares on the Fatehabad Road, only 500 meters away from the east gate of the Taj Mahal.
The Taj Nature Walk area has numerous mounds and platforms to enjoy views of the Taj Mahal. The nine-kilometer trail of the Taj Nature Walk is perfect for a short hike.
The variety of birds spotted here can delight birdwatchers. Among them—bulbuls, paradise flycatchers, golden orioles, tree pies, Indian flame woodpeckers, ringed doves, common green and blue pigeons, parakeets, small bee-eaters, Indian cuckoos, and many more. The dancing peacocks among the background of the Taj create an especially peaceful atmosphere.
In addition to birds, animals such as hyenas, jackals, and blue bulls can also be found here. There are reptiles in the park such as pythons, rat snakes, cobras, and monitor lizards. The Taj Nature Walk has variation in its hue and color depending to time and season. From October to April the forest is blooming with 46 varieties of flowers which are home to numerous butterflies. So this is the best time for this hike.
