Overview

Sariska National Park in Alwar is the most popular national park among wildlife enthusiasts in the country. It is nestled in the widely varied vegetation in Aravali Hills as a peaceful retreat for tourists.

The Government of Rajasthan oversees the national park in 800 square kilometers of territory. Its segments consist of grasslands, steep precipices, rough scenes, fields, and deciduous forests. Dhok trees abound in around 90% area of the sanctuary.

The remnants of a medieval temple of Garh Rajor in the sanctuary date back to the 10th and 11th centuries. You can steal a view of flying eagles and vultures from a 17th-century fort on the hilltop.

The government declared it a sanctuary in 1955. Later it achieved the status of a National Park in 1979. Sariska Wildlife Sanctuary is the best place if you aspire to ride a camel, go shopping, or visit medieval palaces.

 

Major Wildlife Attractions

Apart from tiger, the park is host to wild animals, including Hyena, Leopard, Jackal, Wild Dog, Jungle Cate. These animals prey on herbivorous critters such as Langur, Chital, Wild Boar, Chausingha, Nilgai, and Sambar.

Mind Blowing, amazing and Spectacular. This is a place where everyone should spend time with family and friends. Lush and Green and the roads are good. You can stop at multiple places to click pictures and it is safe as well. Even if you don't get the chance to visit the Sanctuary the drive will be worth it. Just experience the weather and relax. It's get even better in monsoons

🐅🐅🐅 . . . Apart from the Bengal tiger, the reserve includes many wildlife species including Indian leopard, jungle cat, caracal, striped hyena, golden jackal, chital, sambar deer, nilgai, wild boar, small Indian civet, Javan mongoose, ruddy mongoose, honey badger, Rhesus macaque and Northern plains gray langur and Indian hare.[5] Sariska is also ethereal for bird watchers with some of the rarest feathered species like grey partridge, white-throated kingfisher, Indian peafowl, bush quail, sandgrouse, treepie, golden-backed woodpecker, crested serpent eagle and the Indian eagle-owl.[citation needed] In 2003, 16 tigers lived in the reserve. In 2004, it was reported that no tigers were sighted in the reserve, and that no indirect evidence of tiger presence was found such as pug marks, scratch marks on trees, scats. The Rajasthan Forest Department explained that "the tigers had temporarily migrated outside the reserve and would be back after monsoon season". Project Tiger, now National Tiger Conservation Authority (NTCA), backed this assumption. In January 2005, it was reported that there were no tigers left in Sariska.[7] The Rajasthan Forest Department and the Project Tiger Director declared an "emergency tiger census" in Sariska. The Central Bureau of Investigation, India's intelligence agency, conducted a probe. After a two-month investigation, the agency finally declared that no tigers were left in the reserve. Poaching was blamed for the disappearance of tigers. In July 2008, two tigers from Ranthambhore National Park were relocated to Sariska Tiger Reserve. Another female tiger was relocated in February 2009.[8] In 2012, two tiger cubs and their mother were spotted in the reserve bringing the total number of tigers to seven with five adults.[9] In July 2014, two more cubs were spotted, so that there were 11 tigers in total.[10] As of October 2018, there are 18 tigers including five cubs.[11] By 2020, the tiger population in the reserve has risen to 20.[
