Wildlife Parks In India

Sariska Tiger Reserve

Geo details
Location: : Alwar, Rajasthan, India
Area: 866 km²

Sariska Tiger ReserveSariska is amongst rarest dry deciduous abode of tigers in the world. Its terrain is mainly undulating, with sharp cliff hills and narrow valleys of the Aravalli Range. The highly erratic climate at park changes dramatically with every season. Sariska was the capital of Bargujar Kings at Rajor Garh during 10th and 11th centuries, which was later on converted to a hunting paradise for royal entities of erstwhile Alwar estate. Till date, it carries the legacy of the Maharajas of Alwar through the ruined temples and pavilions that still glorify its past riches.

In morning and evening, wildlife in Sariska heads towards the many waterholes, providing the guests a chance to feel the nature from close quarter. The picturesque Siliserh Lake lies along the edge of the tiger reserve and a previous royal hunting lodge overlooking the marvellous panoramic view of park. Several other splendid ruins scattered in the vicinity of the park add an advantegeous charm.

The vegetation at Sariska Tiger Reserve is tropical dry deciduous that supports scrub-thorn arid forests, dry deciduous forests and grasses. The hilly terrain and inadequate rainfall lead to the growth of stunted trees and bushes. Sariska is the sole forest patch in the entire western Aravali Range. Through rarely but surprisingly, greenery can traced in the vast stretches of desert. The main trees are Dhok, Goria, Surwal, Ber, Tendu, and Khair.

However, monsoon changes the look of the forest drastically as the park seems to get a fresh lease of life through lush foliage. The serenity of Sariska Tiger Reserve is at best after the monsoon.

From startled deer to alert pelican and from stealthy tiger to herd of its pray, Sariska Tiger Reserve is rich in faunal population. Apart from Bengal tiger, visitors can also observe several rare animals from close proximity such as leopard, jungle cat, hyena, jackal, caracal, chital, sambar, wild boar and four-horned deer (chowsingha). and several species of birds.

The birdlife includes peafowl, gray partridge, quail, sand grouse, tree pie, white-breasted kingfisher, golden woodpecker and great Indian horned owl. At Sariska, Egyptian vultures have also been observed.
