# 119 Ranthambore National Park


“After breakfast, we leave Jaipur and drive through the rural country-side and into the low Vindhya mountain range.  The drive is about five hours in length along bumpy roads” (oh great!).

Our destination is Ranthambore National Park.  Located near the town of Sawai Madhopur, the park is one of the eleven sites chosen for Project Tiger, India’s national tiger conservation program, the largest such effort in the world.  The park comprises more than a hundred square miles of deciduous forest and several large lakes, and until 1970 it was a hunting preserve of the maharajas."

Dhanyavaad for reading #119 of 7777.
