Ranthambore Fort-The Ranthambhore Fort is located inside the Ranthambhore National Park. This fort stands majestically atop a hill overlooking the entire park. The walk up, one of the only places this mode of transport is possible, is a very refreshing and exciting one as even the big cats have been spotted up there! Many animals can also be seen along the edges of all the water bodies, which are all visible from here. The fort itself also offers many interesting architectural and historical sights worth viewing and photographing.
Lakarda & Anantpura– Lakarda & Anantpura, located in the North-Western and Northern regions of the park are ideal locations to see Sloth Bears. These areas have a lot of ant hills, which are a favourite of the beers. The pugmarks of the Indian striped Hyenas are often seen here. Their numbers are not very large in the park.
Bakula– The Bakula is a thickly forested area inside the Ranthambhore National Park, consisting of dense forest with many small pools and water holes. Tigresses with young cubs are often seen near the water holes in Bakaula, since the dense forest provides cool hides for a tigress and her young, making a major attraction.
Padam Talao– The Padam Talao is the largest of the lakes present in the park. The famous and beautiful Jogi Mahal is located at the very edge of this lake. When in season, the water lilies that give the lake it’s name, can be seen in plenty. In the early hours of the morning and just before sunset, animals can be seen in large numbers on the lake side
