At Ranthambore National Park, in the Indian Subcontinent, the tiger rules the jungle. This nearly 400 sq. Km wide stretch of land in Rajasthan is where these majestic animals reside, roaming amidst verdant greenery along with other animals and birds. Unfortunately, due to its dwindling population, spotting a tiger is a matter of luck, but it is still one of the few places on earth where you can witness tigers in their natural habitat. A jeep safari at the park is not just an exciting adventure but is a chance to explore nature in its truest form. It makes people realize the importance of conserving endangered species, to balance the ecosystem of the earth. The National Park is also home to numerous historic structures, including the magnificent Ranthambore Fort, several temples, mosques, lakes and hunting pavilions. The villages in and around the park give you a glimpse inside the simple life led by the local people of Ranthambore. Walk around the villages, and you will be mesmerized by the vibrant culture of Rajasthan, where you will realize that the state does live up to the hype.
