Ranthambore National Park


Ranthambore National Park is among those few places which pioneered in the Project Tiger operation. The aim of Project Tiger was to check the ever dwindling number of tiger population and ensure that the species is not wiped out from India.

 

Ranthambore is one place where you you can be pretty sure of finding the majestic big cats. Ranthambore National Park is truly exotic and the forest is strewned with ruins that dates back to medieval history. The landscape too is never monotonous and you will find rolling grasslands, rushing streams, open scrubs, heavily wooded valleys, deep ravines and steep cliffs.

 

Ranthambore National Park is located between two of the oldest mountain ranges in India, the Aravalli and Vindhya. With an area of more than 1334 sq km, the national park provides great scope for adventure and jungle safaris to all the tourists who come here. In the middle of this wilderness you will find old forts atop hillocks surrounded by yellow haze of mustard field.

 

Tracking a tiger following pugmarks is both difficult as well as dangerous. Nevertheless it is thrilling and tourists indulge in it. You must, however, have a proper guide. The national park also has a variety of other animals like the leopards, jungle cats and marsh crocodile. You will also see wild boars, sloth bear and porcupines.

 

The wildlife sanctuary at Ranthambore is 145 km from the nearest airport at Jaipur. The nearest route, however, is the Sawai Madhopur Railway Station that falls between Delhi and Mumbai. Communication to and from Ranthambore National Park is not a problem at all. The best time to visit the place is between October and June.
