Ranthambore – Where Wildlife Flourishes
The city of Sawai Madhopur is famous for the Ranthambore National Park located at the confluence point of the Aravalli and the Vindhyas. Ranthambore is located in the Sawai Madhopur district of Rajasthan and derives its name from the Ranthambore Fort which lies inside. The park spread out over an area of 1300 sq km was declared as a Project Tiger reserve in 1973. The park is covered with deciduous forest, is bounded by the Banas River on the north and the Chambal River to the south. This place is a paradise for nature and wildlife lovers who can cover the entire forest zone either through a six-seater jeep safari or a 20-seater canter safari. Tiger sightings are quite frequent here. They can be seen mostly in and around the three lakes present inside the Park. The Padam Talao is the largest lake with the Jogi Mahal on the banks. The Raj Bagh Talao and the Malik Talao are the other two lakes. Other animals that can be easily spotted here are the leopards, Nilgai, mugger crocodile, Indian Chameleon, Hanuman, Indian Flying fox, soft-shell turtles, gray langur, cobra, Indian Python, sloth bear, wild boar, sambar deer and striped hyena. The Bakaula area is marked by small watering holes and dense cover and hence the chances of spotting tigers here is high. The hotter months are highly recommended for tiger sightings. The park is also home to more than 300 known species of plants and trees. Some of the banyan trees spotted here dates back to few centuries. The other trees that can be noticed here are the Imli, Khajur, Neem, Jamun, Kadam and more. Then there are the Dhak trees with blooming flowers aptly called the Flame of the Forest. The Nahargarh fort, a 16th century fort that is located at the foothills of the Aravalli Range with a Mughal garden has been turned into a palatial luxury hotel by the ruling family and is worth a visit. One of the best places to visit at the Park is the Ranthambore Fort built by the Chauhan Dynasty. It is a UNESCO World Heritage Site with each of its walls and corners resplendent of the bygone era.
