Ranthambore National Park is one of the prime examples of Project Tiger’s conservation efforts in Rajasthan. Sprawling across an area of some 1334 sq. kms, Ranthambore is scenically beautiful. Set amidst a landscape of hills, lakes and rivers, the park boasts an impressive 10th century fort. The park terrain fluctuates between impregnable forests and open bush land. The entire forest is peppered with ruined pavilions and small domed, Mughal kiosks known as chhatris. In addition to the Bengal tiger, Ranthambore is home to wild boar, nilgai, sambar deer and a variety of birds. Tiger spottings are more common in the morning or late afternoon, especially if hunting or tending to their young. Venture on morning and afternoon game drives in shared jeeps or Canters.

The 18th century observatory is the largest and best preserved of five observatories built by the astronomer prince, Jai Singh II. He had the huge stone structures built to measure time, chart the declination of celestial bodies and predict eclipses. The observatory complex is remarkably fascinating.

Jaipur is additionally renowned for its wonderful silks, saris and intricate beading. This evening there is time to shop in the colouful local markets or visit a tailor.
