Why is Ranthambore famous?

The Ranthambore National Park is well-known for its wildlife tourism and is located in Sawai Madhopur, Rajasthan. The park, which is located in the foothills of the stunning mountainous landscape of the Aravalis and Vindhya mountains, is an excellent starting point for an adventure-filled vacation in nature, complete with incredible sightings of wild animals. Spending time in a forest while witnessing such a diverse and spectacular fauna is like having a tryst with Nature's might. Seeing the Royal Bengal Tiger, our planet's most brutal and magnificent predator, is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

Why is Ranthambore famous?

 

Ranthambore is well-known for its tiger population. The tiger population in Ranthambore has declined in recent years as a result of poaching and other factors. Human-tiger interactions and poaching became more common as park tourism and the population of neighbouring villages increased.

    It is the only reserve in the region where tigers can be seen at any time of day. One of the reasons why tiger tours are so popular in the area is because of this.

It also provides habitat for a wide variety of trees, plants, birds, and reptiles.

     

    Ranthambore tigers are world-famous with their local pet names thanks to the emotional interactions of wildlife experts, photographers, and jungle officials, including the most famous tigers like Machali (T-16), Dollar (T-25), Sitara (T-28), Bina One, Bina Two, and many more like them. With the increase in the number of tigers in Ranthambore, some have been relocated to neighbouring reserves such as Sariska Tiger Reserve.
