Ranthambore National Park

Ranthambore National Park lies 180 km from Jaipur in Sawai Madhopur district, Rajasthan. Back in 1955, it was founded as the Sawai Madhopur Game Sanctuary and became a tiger reserve in 1973.


This location is bounded by the Chambal River and the Banas River and houses several lakes. It gets its name from the Ranthambore fortress and covers over 392 km of land. If you love wildcats then include Ranthambore as a part of your Rajasthan tour.


When planning your vacation in India, remember that the Ranthambore Sanctuary is open from October to June when the deciduous forests make the tigers more visible.

Other attractions

The Ranthambore Fort was built in the 10th century and stands 700 feet tall. It houses 3 Karauli stone temples which are devoted to Shiva, Ganesh and Ramlalaji. The Padam Talao is the biggest lake inside Ranthambore and on its shore lies the Jogi Mahal.


Your India tour is not complete without a tiger safari in one of the national parks. A Safari can be arranged at 6:30 and 14:30 and will take you inside the park for three hours. You'll ride in an open gypsy or canter so you can easily spot a tiger as you ride through the forest.

However, since the park has 6 zones, most people opt for 2 or more safaris so catching sight of this majestic wildcat is assured. Even if you don’t catch the Tiger, be sure you will see many other wildlife mentioned above.
