Rajasthan Tourism

Rajasthan Wildlife Sanctuary

Nature trails and eco-tourism parks have been developed as an attempt to reverse the damage done by territorial encroachment and to recreate a pristine environment. There are several in Rajasthan. The Nahargarh Biological Park has a variety of vegetation and several species of wild beasts. The Jhalana Nature Trail, Arboretum Park, Amrita Devi Park and Machia Safari Park are the other popular ones. Rajasthan has four famous National Parks and Wildlife Sanctuaries that offer a fascinating variety of birds and beasts, of flora and fauna and of hilly and forested terrain. These sanctuaries can be explored either by jeep or on elephant back. For those with the spirit for adventure, these sanctuaries provide the kind of excitement that really makes the adrenaline flow. The Keoladeo Ghana National Park at Bharatpur is a bird sanctuary that is visited, every year, by our feathered friend from distant lands. It is famous for the exotic Spoonbills and Siberian Cranes. The Sariska Wildlife Sanctuary and the Ranthambore National Park are tiger reserves and homes to the royal Indian tiger. These destinations have a large variety of other wild species including the wild boar, jackal, sambar and nilgai. The Ranthambore National Park is also a heritage site, as it houses the magnificent ruins of a thousand-year-old fort. So, get set for a jeep or elephant safari and enjoy a close encounter with the wild beasts and beautiful birds in their natural habitat. A trip to these wildlife sanctuaries is highly recommended for animal and adventure lovers.

Bharatpur Bird Sanctuary
Keoladeo Ghana Bird Sanctuary at Bharatpur is one of the most important breeding and feeding grounds for migratory birds in the world. More than 30 sq.km of shallow lakes and scrubby woodland harbour over 350 bird species from as far away as Europe and Siberia. It is possible to see 150 species in a day and as many as 10 species nesting in a single tree. The main migratory season is from mid October to mid February, but many residents nest and breed in the sanctuary during the hotter months and monsoon.

Bharatpur was given National Park status in 1982 to control visitors, and offer protection from illegal grazing. The sanctuary was declared a World Heritage Site in 1985 and is widely held to be the best birding site in India.

One of the most visually exciting sights is the Keoladeo Heronry with six different species of herons and egrets. Nesting alongside are Painted Storks, Ibises, Spoonbills, Jacanas and Cormorants, together with terrestrials including a variety of Babblers, Warblers and Bee-Eaters. The most important visitors are the Siberian Cranes, but since they raise only one chick their numbers are dwindling, just one or two pairs have visited in recent years.

The park is refreshingly free of any motor vehicles. Walking and cycling along raised embankments offers a unique opportunity to get closer to the rich birdlife. Many people choose a cycle rickshaw, which has the added advantage of providing a local bird expert. Boats are also available, depending on water levels. The park lies between Delhi and Ranthambhore and is only 50km from Agra, the ancient Moghul city of Fatehpur Sikri is also nearby. The Bund Bhareta Reservoir and National Chambal Sanctuary offer further wildlife opportunities for those with an additional day to spend in the area.

Best Time To Visit
The park is open throughout the year although most visitors choose to come between October and February, when wintering wildfowl assemble in thousands on the lakes. The breeding season is between August and October.

Park Population
The park supports a population of 375 species of birds, numerous mammals and reptiles. With the onset of winter, migratory birds from all over world come here. They arrive by August and leave in February. Visitors include Coot Snipes, Spanish Sparrow, Red Crested Porhard, Rosy Pelican and Flamingo. The special attraction, however, remains the arrival of the rare Siberian Crane. The park is also rich in Pythons, Spotted Deer, Sambhars, Blue Bull, Black Buck, Jackals, Otters, Fishing Cats, Monitor Lizards.

Nearby Attractions
Nearby places of interest are the Government Museum, Bharatpur which gives a glimpse of past splendour. Not far from the museum is the Bharatpur Palace which is an excellent blend of Mughal and Rajput architecture. There is the Lohagarh Fort which remained invincible despite several attacks by the British. Just 32 km from Bharatpur, is the Deeg Palace. This strong and massive fort was the summer resort of the rulers of Bharatpur and has many palaces and gardens.

How to reach
Air : 56-kms from Bharatpur is the nearest airport situated at Agra.
Rail : The Bharatpur railway station is 6-kms from the park and regular rail services connect Bharatpur with all the major cities of India such as Delhi, Mumbai, Jaipur and Agra.
Road : A fine network of roadway services links Bharatpur to all the major cities of the Rajasthan and its neighbouring states like Delhi, Uttar Pradesh, Haryana. Bharatpur is well connected by road from Agra (56-kms, 5 hours), Delhi (176-kms, 5 hours) and Jaipur (176-kms, 6 hours), all of which have airport facilities too.

Ranthambore National Park
Situated in India. s northwestern state of Rajasthan, near the town of Sawai Madhopur, midway between Bharatpur and Kota townships Ranthambore National Park is surrounded by the Vindhya and Aravali hill ranges and is very near to the outer fringes of the Thar Desert. The entire area has sprawling tracts of the desert and semi-desert vegetation. Originally a hunting ground of the Maharaja of Jaipur, Ranthambore was declared a game sanctuary in 1955. In 1980, it became a national park and listed among the reserves protected under Project Tiger (1973). Presently the Kaila Devi Sanctuary, also famous for its tigers, and Mansingh Sanctuary also form part of Ranthambore Reserve.

The tigers can be spotted quite often even during the day, at their normal pursuits - hunting and taking care of their young. With the strict measures that have been taken for their conservation, they seem quite accustomed to human activity and are not disturbed by it. A good time to visit is between November and April when the nature of the dry deciduous forests makes sightings common. Ranthambore has large numbers of sambar, chital and nilgai. Sounders of boar and an occasional gazelle the chinkara can be seen, as also the Indian hare, mongoose and monitor lizards.

The Park which covers an area of 392 sq. km. is set between the Aravalli and Vindhya ranges. Its deciduous forests were once a part of the magnificent jungles of Central India. The terrain is rugged and there are rocky ridges, hills and open valleys with lakes and pools. Ranthambore's royal past manifests itself in the picturesque ruins that dot the Park. There are lake palaces, chhatris, old fortifications and a majestic thousand year old fort on a height overlooking the Park. The forest rest house at the foot of the Ranthambore fort is located in the lovely Jogi Mahal. It overlooks a tank - the pretty Padam Talao, afloat with water lilies.

The lakes and pools at the Park are where the deer congregate and where it is easiest to see the animals. Among the other local fauna are the leopard, hyena, jackal, jungle cats, sloth bear and marsh crocodile. A view of the Jogi Mahal deciduous forests of the ancient Aravalli range, are excellent tiger country and Sariska, was once the royal reserve of the rulers of Alwar. Declared a sanctuary in 1955, it became a Tiger Reserve in 1979 under Project Tiger. Jacanas, painted stork, black stork, and white necked stork are seen along the water bodies. Peafowl are found in abundance and other birds include Bonelli's eagle, crested serpent eagle, the great Indian horned owl, quail, partridge, spur fowl and the paradise flycatcher.

Seasons : October-June, the best period being December-April.

Access : Fly to Jaipur (the closest airport) and drive to Ranthambore (165 kms) By train : Ranthambore National Park is approx. 12 km from the Sawaimadhopur Railway station, that lies on the Delhi to Mumbai trunk route.

Sariska Wildlife Sanctuary
In the Aravalli range, which cuts across Rajasthan, a few pockets of forest still survive; one such area is the Sariska Wildlife Sanctuary & Tiger Reserve, once the shikargah (hunting ground) of the princely state of Alwar. Under the guidance of Maharaja Jai Singh, many waterholes and watchtowers were constructed within the jungles, which have been a boon for the wildlife. Sariska became a Sanctuary in 1958 and was brought under Project Tiger in 1979.

Sariska lies within the Golden Tourist Triangle of Delhi, Jaipur and Agra, and is an important halt for the traveller. It is one of the last surviving densely forested tracts along the Aravalli mountain range and the 800km2 dry deciduous jungles are interspersed with forest, scrubland and water-bodies, which provide fruit, fodder and water for its birds, mammals and reptiles.

The Park is rich in avifauna as well; besides the omnipresent Peafowl other birds such as woodpeckers, partridges, quails, owls, treepies and several species of raptors may be spotted with patience and bit of luck. As a Ranathambhore National Park, also in Rajasthan, this park contains ruined temples as well as a fort, pavilions and a palace (now a hotel) built by the maharajas of Alwar, the former owners of this area. The sanctuary can be visited year-round, except during July/ August when the animals move to higher ground, but the best time is between November and June. You will see most wildlife in the evening, though tiger sightings are becoming more common during the day.

The tiger reigns supreme in the forests of Sariska, but other animals cohabit with the "Great Cat" and herds of Chital (spotted deer), solitary Nilgai (Blue Bull) and Sambar (largest Asiatic deer), Wild Boar, Indian Porcupine, Wild Dog and Hare may be seen on a safari through the Park. Hides have been constructed at strategic locations (e.g. near a waterhole) to enable visitors to photograph animals (special permission needed).

Best time to visit
The best time to visit this beautiful countryside is between November and June. One can see the most of the animals in the evening

How to reach
Sariska is 35 km from Alwar, which is a convenient town to approach the sanctuary. Frequent buses ply between Sariska and Alwar. From Jaipur, Sariska is 120 km away and it takes three hours by road. Jaipur is well connected by air, rail and road to most of the important cities in India.The best way to visit the park is by jeep and these can be arranged at the Forest Reception Office on the Jaipur Road.
