Ranthambore National Park Complete Travel Guide

Ranthambore Fort and Ranthambore National Park

Every tourist who visits Rajasthan should make Sawaimadhopur District a priority. In my previous blogs, I tried to provide complete information on these tourist spots. This blog will attempt to show you what you need to do while visiting Ranthambore National Park.

What time of the year is Ranthambore National Park best visited? Where to book a safari ticket? What is the best time to visit these national parks? In which zones are tigers more common? This blog will provide all information about this national park that will help you in planning your Ranthambore Trip Package. Let me first give you some information about these two tourist spots.

Ranthambore Fort

One of the most impressive fortifications was built in the 10th century. This fort has something special that I found most remarkable. Once you reach the top, the Aravali is visible.

This fort has been the target of many wars since its construction. Nearly every Rajput ruler, Mughal invader, and Rajput ruler has attacked it and tried to take it over. This fort is still known for its identity, despite the 19-year rule of RanaHammirDev. The Rajput kings from Jaipur took control of the fort’s power in the 17th century. The Kings of Jaipur began to use the jungles around this naturally rich fort for entertainment and hunting.

This fort was added to the 2013 edition of the UNESCO World Heritage Site. This fort is located in the middle of Ranthambore National Park. It is associated with this national park. Tourists come here to see Ranthambore National Park, which is located nearby. If they have the time, they may visit this fort.

So, I wrote a blog about Ranthambore Fort first so that tourists who visit this place can learn more about the history and make connections with it. I suggest that you write Ranthambore’s name on your bucket list whenever you decide to visit Ranthambore.

Ranthambore National Park

This national park (forest) is surrounded by the Aravalli mountains, rich in wildlife and stunning. Every tourist who visits this national park will remember it forever. This national park is home to the tiger and a sloth bear and deer, an Indian striped Hyena, a lot more migratory birds, and a leopard.

This forest is enriched with lakes, ponds and other natural features that allow you to enjoy the best of both worlds. The area was home to poaching for many years before it became a national park. Poaching was a common practice in this beautiful place since the independence of India in 1947. Before Project Tiger began in 1973, there were only 1000 Indian tigers.

Ranthambore was home to only 37 tigers in 1973 when it was part of Project Tiger. Ranthambore became a national park after it was established in 1980. This was a result of the hard work and dedication of forest workers and officials. Today, more than 70 tigers are found in the national park.

While there is always the possibility of more tigers being kept in this park, the current situation is that millions of tourists from both India and abroad visit Ranthambore National Park each year.

The buffer zone, which is the outermost area of the national park, is very rich in natural resources. The buffer zone can be divided into 6-10 sections. The 6th section is the best for natural beauty. This national park covers 392 kilometres if you add the buffer zone.

Ranthambore National Park’s tigers are increasing rapidly at the moment. A buffer zone was created to protect them. The chances of seeing tigers within this zone will increase in the future. This zone can be accessed via the main road gate located south of Sawai Madhopur.

A canter is an open roof bus in which 20 people can ride at a time. Because of this, there can be no better option for a large group to enjoy this national park. If you are with your friends or on a family trip, walking in this garden in the canter can be a memorable experience.
