Sariska National Park
India, Alwar

Sariska National Park is located in India in the Alwar region, 200 km from Delhi and 107 km from Jaipur. The former royal hunting grounds of Maharaja Alvar in 1958 were declared a protected area, in 1979 a Tiger Reserve was created here, which in 1982 was granted the status of a National Park. The area of the park is 866 square kilometers, it is located on the territory of the Aravali mountain range. The landscape of the park is represented by valleys, cliffs and hills covered with dry deciduous and arid forests, thorny shrubs and grassy plains. The main attraction of the park is considered to be the Tiger Reserve. In 2005, scientists and environmentalists sounded the alarm that the animals themselves and their traces were not found in the reserve, although a few years ago there were 16 Bengal tigers in the park. A survey of the area was carried out, which confirmed the absence of these endangered animals in the reserve. Several adult individuals were resettled from Sariska National Park, and already in 2014 13 tigers were recorded - 7 females, 2 males and 4 cubs. In addition, leopards, reeds, hyenas, jackals, Indian palm martens, deer read, Indian zambar, nilgau, four-horned antelope, crocodiles and monkeys live in the park. 90% of the park’s vegetation is made up of a dhok tree; acacia, palm trees, bamboo, ficus, and thorny bushes are also found. Several historical and religious attractions are located on the territory of the Sarisk National Park - the ancient temple of the god Hanuman, Kankavari fort, where the legitimate heir of the Mughal empire, Prince Dar of Shikhon, and the palace of Sarisk, built on the edge of the park of Maharaja Jai Singh, were imprisoned. Now the palace houses a luxury hotel, and in the XIX century it was used as a hunting lodge of the ruler of Alvar. But the main reason why thousands of tourists visit the park is to participate in a jeep safari in the Tigrinsky Reserve. During an exciting tour, visitors can see wild animals in their natural habitat, admire the beauties of nature, and, if lucky, meet the owner of the Indian jungle - the Bengal tiger.
