Ranthambore National Park is one of the most renowned national park in Northern India, located in the Sawai Madhopur district of southeastern Rajasthan.

Once a famous hunting ground of the Maharajas of Jaipur, today the Ranthambore National Park terrain is a major wildlife tourist attraction where one goes in search of the elusive Royal Bengal Tiger. Comibine the big cats’ bravado with the park’s proximity to the Delhi-Agra-Jaipur “Golden Triangle”, and you’ll understand why Ranthambore attracts the number of visitors it does.

Comprising 1334 sq km of wild jungle scrub hemmed in by rocky ridges, at its center is the 10th-century Ranthambhore Fort, a World UNESCO Heritage Site.

Scattered around the fort are ancient temples and mosques, hunting pavilions, crocodile-filled lakes and vine-covered chhatris (burial tombs).

Weather wise, the best time to visit the park is from October to March, although you’re more likely to see tigers in April and May if you can take the heat (temperatures can soar to 40C+). November, December and January can bring cold mornings and evenings, with crisp, sunny days. The monsoon season lasts from July to the end of September when park is generally closed for tourists.
