Rajasthan is a name synonymous with images of invincible forts, magnificent palaces, lakes, colourful festivals, mighty Rajputs warriors, ragged Arawali ranges and all situated in heart of the Thar Desert. But the state of Rajasthan is not only the Thar Desert. The topography of Rajasthan ranges from the barren desert, scrub-thorn arid forests, rocks and ravines to wetlands and lush, green forests. Since lots of Rajasthan’s area is sparingly inhabited each of these areas is a haven for a wide spectrum of wildlife, bestowing the state with some of the most fascinating wildlife sanctuaries in India. You will never forgot fascinating trips to Ranthambhor wild Life Sanctuary and Sariska Tiger Reserve.
