Sariska Wildlife Sanctuary


The Wild in the Wooden Valley 
The wide spectrum and rich population of the wildlife in the open dry deciduous forests of Sariska in a marvel of ecological adaptation and tolerance. Situated in the northern part of the Araveli Hills, nearly 200 kms. from Delhi on the Delhi-Alwar - Jaipur road with an area of 800 kms., Sariska was declared a sanctuary in 1995 and it became a Tiger Reserve in 1979 

The other great predator of Sariska's forests is the leopard besides the ferocious tiger. Sariska has a healthy porcupine population, and this tiny creature often pits itself against the tiger, which is particularly fond of porcupine flesh. 

The 'Chowsingha' (four horned antelope) is commonly found at Sariska; exclusively Indian, it is the world's only wild creature, which has two pairs of horns. The Park's terrain is also congenial to the Chinkara (Indian Gazelle) and Nilgai.

Remarkable for their lack of timidity are the Rhesus and Langur, which, at Sariska tolerate human closeness with astonishing equanimity.

The birdlife comprises of the Pea Fowl, Gray Partridge, Quail, Sandgrouse, Tree Pie, White-Breasted Kingfisher, Golden-Backed Woodpecker, Crested Serpent, Eagle and Great Indian Horned Owl.
