East of Jaipur

The area east of Jaipur, interspersed with the forested slopes of the Aravalli Hills, holds an inviting mixture of historic towns and wildlife sanctuaries. To the northeast is the fortified town of Alwar, convenient for the Sariska Tiger Reserve and National Park. Further east are the former princely capitals of Deeg and Bharatpur, and India’s finest bird sanctuary, Keoladeo National Park. The wildlife sanctuary at Ranthambore, in idyllic scenery southeast of Jaipur, offers the best chance in India of spotting wild tigers.
