From the maharaja heritage in the colored cities to the luminous splendor of its sun-kissed dessert, Rajasthan is romantic India wrapped in royal robes. Exquisitely carved temples and crumbling old fortresses rise majestically out of the golden desserts. For the adventurous hearts it offers the exciting and accessible Ranthambore National Park; which gets its name from the historical fort located within the periphery of the park. The fort is perched high on a hill of and is situated about 5km inside the park. It has been listed as a part of UNESCO World Heritage Site. In 1955 the forest was declared as'Sawai Madhopur Sanctuary', and ultimately declared as a part of Tiger Project in 1980 and eventually a National Park. Located at the junction of the Aravalis and the Vindhyas, Ranthambore National Park is a unique example of natural and historical legacy.

Agra Fort


Built originally by the Mughals in the 11th Century, the Agra Fort held fort again with the majestic vision of their Emperor Shah Jahan in 1573. This brick-walled heritage structure, also called the walled city, attracted many for its priced possession - The Koh-I-Noor Diamond. Indians refer to it as the 'Agrey ka Quilla'. Just 2.5 kms away from its sister wonder - Taj Mahal, the Agra Fort took 4000 workers working daily for eight years to complete this landmark. Primarily a military structure, it later became Shah Jahan's gilded prison for 8 years until his son Aurangzeb seized power in 1658. This beautiful red layout lay's upon the banks of Yamuna with glory.

Photography Tips

Moments you wouldn't want to miss capturing, click away! Take a lot of photographs; carry additional memory cards and extra sets of batteries for your cameras. To protect your gear from humidity, carry Silica Gel to keep away lens fungus. For photography lovers, zoom lenses are the way to go about wildlife! While wide angle lenses which are perfect for capturing large herds of wild animals and flocks of birds have their place in every wildlife photographer's gear bag, the most used lenses will be telephoto lenses which bring distant action close. For wildlife photography, the longer your lens, the closer you'll be to the action!



Clothing

Totally sober and environment- friendly colors that blend with the forest like khaki, brown and olive green are the ideal colors to wear in a national park. The summers are blistering hot and linens work best. The winters are just the opposite. Morning drives into the park are freezing cold and how many ever layers you wear sometimes feel insufficient. The days however are extremely pleasant and a light sweatshirt can more than suffice. Evenings and night once again get very chilly. Carrying along a pair of gloves and a muffler is advisable. For those who intend to take photographs in the wee hours of the morning without pressing all the wrong buttons on their cameras, take along a pair of gloves that are thin yet warm and provide for sufficient movement of the hands



Miscellaneous

Though the hotel manager will give medicines in case need arises. Still, it is recommended to carry your own kit. If you are an asthma or arthritis patient please carry fool medicine box with you.
