Tiger National Reserve-Sariska


Sariska Tiger Reserve is well nestled in the Aravali Hills covering 800 sq km area divided into the grasslands, dry deciduous forests, sheer cliffs and rocky landscape. Whether you want to have camel safaris, go out for shopping in the surrounding places, visit medieval palaces or wildlife watching; Sariska Wildlife Sanctuary is the best place for you.

Nearly 90% of the area in the sanctuary is covered with dhok trees accommodating various wildlife species. A variety of other wild animals like the leopard, sambhar, chital, nilgai, four-horned antelope, wild boar, rhesus macaque, langur, hyena and jungle cats are found in the Sariska Tiger Reserve apart from the tiger. The Sariska National Park is home to India''s largest population of peafowl, and harbours quail, sand grouse, golden- backed woodpeckers and crested serpent eagles, among other species. Also the Siliserh Lake on the edge of the park has a large number of crocodiles.

The Sariska Wildlife Sanctuary houses the ruins of medieval temples of Garh-Rajor that date back to the 10th and 11th centuries. Also a 17th century castle on a hilltop at Kankwari provides a panoramic view of flying vultures and eagles. The Sariska was declared a sanctuary in 1955 and attained the status of a National Park in 1979.

Sariska park is home to numerous carnivores including Leopard, Wild Dog, Jungle Cat, Hyena, Jackal, and Tiger. These feed on an abundance of prey species such as Sambar, Chitel, Nilgai, Chausingha, Wild Boar and Langur.

Thank you for the tour of Sariska Tiger Reserve. It looks like a fascinating place to explore, especially by the river.

What a magnificent plethora of wild animals. For me, I find the various primates the most fun to watch. Great photos.

Lovely tour!

Jacob said...

I had no idea! This is an amazing place. Thanks for showing a bit of it to us.

Is it safe what with all those wild animals roaming about?

It looks like you spends days, yea, weeks, wandering about the reserve!

Ayie said...

nice safari but where's the tiger?

Lois said...

I did enjoy. Thanks!

robert said...

Nearly as impressive and filled with power as the monsoun rain, hope that you are not getting too wet, eventhough I guess the land might need the rain.
One thing I might need is to visit India one day...until then enjoy your site very much.

It's just so foreign to see the monkeys on the road, and to think of all that exotic wildlife. What a remarkable reserve. India is so full of beauty. My husband had been to India many times, I am still looking forward to going someday. I have many treasures that he brought back though. The textiles are wonderful.

Bergson said...

We see the tigers

Hi! Great post and another beautiful place to put in my list of places to see...

Blogtrotter is anticipating the 4th of July fireworks; but in a different country... ;) Have a great weekend (or vacation, should you have that chance...)!

mimo said...

India is fascinating country. My father had been working there for 1,5 year - it was many years ago. I hope to visit India some time, too.

Thank you for visiting our blog - latest post also can be interesting for you

A place I'd love to visit! :)

Greetings from Assam! Although I've seen many cities in Rajasthan, I haven't been to the santuaries. Along with Bharatpur, Sariska is on my wishlist. Great post! And travelling in Rajasthan is always a wonderful experience.

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Very nice post... That looks like a fabulous wildlife park to visit. Don't think I'd want to be in there at night though... ha....

Hope you have a wonderful weekend.
Betsy

Wonderful place and shots!
I like so much the river inside forest, the hill, the old tree, the night view of the forest and all the other images.

Petrea said...

You always have fascinating pictures!

George said...

Thanks for the tour of this fascinating national reserve. It looks like another wonderful place to visit.

Hilda said...

It looks and sounds like you can spend a month or two inside the park without running out of things to see! But not without a guide with a means of protection, I think.

Fantastic and beautiful!

SandyCarlson said...

This looks like a wonderful adventure.

I would love to do a safari here. In India I've only done it in Bharatpur, near Fatehpur Sikri, but no tigers there, just hyenas... :-)

Maggie May said...

Wonderful photos. For me everything is so different from my life here. It is so interesting for me to visit and I thank you for this opportunity!
All those monkeys!

Joseph Pulikotil said...

Hi:)

Lovely photos and excellent narration of the tour. I enjoyed it.

It is really exciting to see monkeys sitting on the road side. Hope they didn't pounce on you:)

Have a nice day:)

Shell Sherree said...

What an amazing spot - thank you for the gorgeous tour!

walk2write said...

I enjoyed all of your photos but was especially intrigued by the one of the river in the forest. Was it taken from a boat (part of your safari) or from a bridge? Thank you for a fascinating tour.

Yoke, said...

Great photos.

How I'd wish I'd be able to paint in a forest like that. (I grew up in a large European forest, and any woodlands appeal to me, but the shape of those trees are just great!

Any Tigers in your view? Mind you, a trip through a reserve is worth a great lot, Tigers or not. And I bet the atmosphere is mesmerising.

Ebie said...

What a beautiful country. Thank you for the virtual tour.
