Sariska Tiger Reserve

Thirty-seven km from Alwar is Sariska, the green wood and hills of which are the dwellings of panther, tiger, antelope, and wild boar. Sariska wildlife sanctuary is a Tiger Reserve now under Project Tiger.

Sariska is probably one of the most visited national parks in India. The park, like many other parks, was the hunting reserve of the royal family of Alwar. The reserve was declared a nature reserve in 1958 AD and came under the "Tiger Project" as a Sariska Tiger Reserve in 1979 AD. The park covers quite a large area of 800 square kilometers, of which 480 square kilometers form the area of the national park. It is located among the Aravalli hills in the Alwar district of Rajasthan. Due to the presence of monuments of religious importance located in the park, the park authorities are forced to keep the park open throughout the year. The summer months are better to see the animals but are extremely hot with temperatures rising as high as 49 degrees centigrade. In the winter months, the temperature touches a bottom of 4 degrees.

The landscape of Sariska includes hills and narrow valleys of the Aravali hill range. The topography of Sariska supports the bush thorn of arid forests, dry deciduous forests, rocks and grasses. The wide range of fauna and flora here is a wonderful example of ecological adoption and tolerance, for climate here is variable as well as irregular.

The Sariska National Park is home to numerous carnivores including Leopard, Wild Dog, Jungle Cat, Hyena, Jackal, and Tiger. Those carnivorous feed on an abundance of prey species like Sambhar, gazelles, blue bulls, antelopes, wild boar and monkeys. Sariska is also well known for its large population of Rhesus Monkeys, which are found in large numbers.

In addition to these wild animals, tourists can also explore the diverse species of birds during their visit to Sariska National Park. Some of the popular birds found here are the Peacock, Gray Partridge, Bush Quail, Sand Grouse, Tree Pie, Golden Supported Pic, Snake's Capped Eagle and Large (Super) Indian Duke.
