A tiny village that derives its name from two hills - Ran and Thambor, Ranthambhore in the state of Rajasthan is endowed with a magnificient environment. Its deciduous forests are rich in flora and fauna that inhabits a wide span of all species. A land, which boasts of a legendary history, was the stronghold of the Yadavas in the 8th century. Later in the 10th century, it came under rule of the mighty Chauhans, which continued as such till the Mughals acquired its possession.

Rathambore is a dream destination for wildlife enthusiasts. Famed for its avid wildlife, Rathambore proffers a picturesque ambiance with rocky smudges, lovely hills, pretty lakes, ponds and beautiful ravines. Its rugged terrain and strategic location in the midst of Vindhya and Aravalli ranges makes it a perfect asylum for those estranged and exotic breeds in the Animal Kingdom.

Rathambhore is famous for the Wildlife Sanctuary by the same name where one can witness the juxtaposition of wildlife, history and nature. Dotted with so many structures of the past, Ranthambhore offers the fabulous mixture of a heritage site as well as the magical charm of a rich wild life. The ruins of yesteryears, which are spotted through out the length and breadth of the forests give Rathambhore a unique and invigorating appeal.

A pictorial place with extensive range of dazzling landscapes, Rathambhore offers something unusual to its visitors. The mesmerizing ride through the undulating grasslands, gushing streams, open scrubs, densely wooded valleys, deep ravines flanked by steep peaks would definitely provide one with a rejuvenating vigor.

Ranthambhore would be the best place to squander if the traveler in you is quite proud of the rich legacy of an ancient township. Its majestic relics like the ruined pavilions, crumbling walls, wells, and other glittering edifices of kingships quench your thirst to be in the midst of a glorious past.
