Visiting Ranthambore National Park

Ranthambore National Park is a 1334 sq km of wild jungle scrub hemmed in by rocky ridges. A tits center is the 10th-century Ranthambore Fort, and are scattered  nearby are ancient temples and mosques, crocrodile filled lakes, chhatris (cenotaphs) and hides. The park is a Maharaja's hunting ground till 1970 - a curious 15 years after it had become a sanctuary.

It is the best place to spot some wild tigers in their natural habitats. Aside from the enormous Ganesh Mela every August, traffic is restricted to organised safaris. Seeing a tiger is just a matter of luck, but the park is also worth visiting for the scenery and other wildlife, particularly if you walk upto the fort. There are more than 300 species of birds in the park.

Best time to vist between October and June
