It is an experience to cherish – seeing the most majestic of all big cats in the flesh, at such close quarters. The experience of actually being in the wilderness, amidst diverse types of flora and fauna, many of them unique and valuable, should drive you wild! Therefore, whenever you obtain an opportunity to do so, drop in at Ranthambore National Park, Sawai Madhopur, located in Rajasthan, for a prolonged visit.
Apart from exploring the wildlife sanctuary via jungle safaris, you will also be able to observe the magnificence of the Ranthambore Fort. It is an architectural wonder, dating back to 944 A.D., when the Chauhan Dynasty was in power. UNESCO recognises the Fort, standing atop a 700 ft hill, as a World Heritage site. The Fort is located within the wildlife sanctuary.
Several lakes and ruins dot the area within the National Park and the regions surrounding it. You will never see such greenery and stillness anywhere else. When you have had your fill, look at the paintings displayed at Ranthambore’s School of Art. The ‘tiger’ finds a special place in most paintings. These paintings are used as a medium by students, to educate villagers and others about preserving the species, as well as conserving the environment.
You should not be leaving Rajasthan without paying your respects to the skilled artists at the Village Women Craft arena. Women from the rural populace are keen to offer you a vast array of handmade carpets, tribal rugs, woollen carpets, shawls, bed covers, paintings about wild life, etc. It is a government initiative to help these women remain economically independent and stable.
When you feel that the stillness is getting too much for you, unleash all your energy at the Wild Dragon Adventure Park. The thrills occur within an isolated valley, close to Ranthambore National Park.
