National Parks in Rajasthan closed for Monsoon
With the end of the summer and the onset of Monsoon, it’s time to say good-bye to your frequent trips to jungle across India. All the tiger reserves and National Parks of India including Ranthambhore National Park and Sariska will be closed from today i.e. July 1 and will reopen for wildlife tourism from October 01, 2014, which is the annual feature of the parks for the monsoon.
As per the forest officials and experts, it is this time of the year that many animals and thousands of egrets, herons, storks, cormorants, darters, spoonbills and ibises breed and the entry of tourists might pose as a disturbance in their mating and cause problem for them. During these months the wild animals turn aggressive and need complete isolation. These aspects along with other maintenance works of the Forest Department are necessary for closing of parks. Therefore the parks are closed. However, in Sariska, religious tourists to temple at Pandupole will be allowed on Fridays and Saturdays.
However, you will miss the chilling cacophony of languor shrieks, sambar calls, chirping of birds and the sight of a fierce tiger enjoying its prey or playing with its cubs, But a real adventurous and full of nature holiday destination will still remain open to delight you with regal luxuries, plush gardens and sight of many migratory birds.
Plan a monsoon trip with Alsisar Hotels- Nahargarh amid luxuries and nature near Ranthambhore National Park and wish for a safe monsoon to the denizens of jungle !!!
