Bharatpur, once the home of the valorous Jat kings, is now well renowned as the ‘Ornithologist’s Paradise. A world heritage site, Keoladeo Ghana National Park is one of the world’s major wintering areas for a large number of aquatic birds. Hailed as the most popular birding hotspot in Northern India, the area is home to the Sarus Crane among other elusive species. Keoladeo, the name gets from an old Hindu temple, which is dedicated to Lord Shiva and remains at the focal point of the national park. "Ghana" implies thick, alluding to the thick woods, which used to cover the region. Exploring the park in a cycle rickshaw is an experience one would cherish forever.
Tucked in the lap of the Aravalli mountain ranges. Home of the local kingdom, Ranthambore now homes another kind of royalty: the Royal Bengal Tigers.

The formidable fort, which towers over the entire park, makes Ranthambore a classic blend of history and nature!
The Jhalana Doongri Industrial Area near Jaipur harbors an unlikely 20-square-kilometer oasis. Jhalana offers topographical diversity with hills, valleys, plateaus, sand dunes, nallahs, and gullies.

Leopards are in plenty here, which boosts the chances of some great sightings! Other attractions are Jackals, Hyenas, Blue Bulls, Spotted Deer, and more than 150 species of birds!
The Golden Triangle is the most popular tourist route in India, and for a good reason too. Delhi, Jaipur, and Agra are three cities that capture your imagination and take you into the fascinating and passionate world of the Maharajas and Mughals.
