Ranthambore National Park: The place where tigers maul the deer

If you haven’t been to any wildlife park in the past, then let not miss out on the opportunity to tour Ranthambore this season! Ranthambore National Park India is one of the most reputable wildlife parks in the country and is toured by young and old alike! Situated in the mighty state of Rajasthan, it is a potent attraction and is often visited by tourists enjoying a state trip. It is just a few hours’ drive from Jaipur. So, even if you are staying in the capital city, you can reach Ranthambore by a car or bus easily.
Ranthambore National Park Rajasthan is spread over 392 sq km and sprawls over rocky hills and dry grassland. Thus, the geography offers plenty of fodder to creatures of an eclectic kind. Though the star actor of Ranthambore is the Indian tiger, you can also come across hundreds of other animals. This forest is the address of deer of a huge mélange. From the sambhar to the cheetal to the chinkara, you can capture them all in your cameras!

If you are lucky, you can also witness the deer getting mauled by a tiger.

Ranthambore is also noted for its rustic old fort which enjoys an impregnable presence and is often thronged by visitors. Besides, this is one of those rare parks where your chances of spotting a tiger are really good. Because of parched areas and less foliage, tigers are easy to catch! One more reason why tiger-spotting is easier in this part of India is the climate! Ranthambore can turn quite hot during the summer months of April-June. This is the time when pools dry up and tigers can be seen panting near the streams and rivers, attempting to douse the eternal thirst!
Therefore, if you are looking to take some cool camera shots of the tigers, then the best time to visit Ranthambore National Park would be during the summer season. From the popularity quotient, the park receives its maximum traffic during the wintry days of December-February. This is the time when the weather is the most comforting!

The park stays open for tourists from 6:30 am to 10 am, and then again from 1:30 pm to 5:30 pm. Though the entry tickets are nominally priced at Rs 25 (for Indians), you will have to pay extra for bringing in a video camera! Besides, if you wish to hire a guide (which you should), then you will have to chuck out a few more bucks (RS 150 onwards).
