To Sariska-By Road-An Album

These pictures are from the overnight visit Madhav, a cousin, and I took with our sons to Sariska Tiger Reserve & National Park & Alwar.
Sariska is some 110 km from Jaipur. We went on the Jaipur-Delhi Highway till Shahpura where we turned for Thana Gazi & The Fort View Camp. This camp site is managed by Club Mahindra. It is located quite near to the gate of the jungle.

Tea Break

On the way to Sariska,this is where we broke our journey to have some tea.
If for some reason the White House was located in Rajasthan I am sure the locals would have called it ‘Dholi Kothi’.

Machan

This Machan faces a stepwell where wildlife comes to drink water. As Sariska Tigerlands were a hunting preserve of the Maharajas of Alwar the Alwar Royals used to hunt wildlife from this Machan.
