Ranthambore National Park


The Ranthambore National Park, at the junction of the Aravallis and the Vindhyas, is a unique juxtaposition of natural and historical richness, standing out conspicuously in a vast arid and denuded tract of eastern Rajasthan, barely 14 km. from the town of Sawai Madhopur. 

It is spread over a highly undulating topography, varying from gentle to steep slopes, from flat-topped hills (Indala, Doodh-Bhat, and Chiroli) of the Vindhyas to the conical hillocks and sharp ridges of the Aravallis, from wide and flat valleys (Lahpur, Nalghati, Khachida, Anantpur, etc.) to narrow rocky gorges. 

An important geological feature, the “Great Boundary fault” where the Vindhyas was brought against the ancient Aravallis, passes from here.

It is hard to believe that once in the town of Sawai Madhopur, one is simply only 10 km away from a national park where Tigers roam freely. This particular park shone on the world wildlife tourism map due to the consistent efforts of Mr. Fateh Singh Rathore. With 1000-year-old fort ramparts in the background and huge lakes in the park, Tigers are home in Ranthambhore.

These lakes have a couple of hundred crocodiles and rarely does one hear encounters of Tigers with Crocodiles, but anything in this mysterious land. In winters, these lakes attract a lot of migratory birds too. Ranthambore has been home to some legendary Tigers – from Ghengis Khan to Noor, then Machli, T17, T24, and now T19.
