Default Roadtrip through Rajasthan on Safari

Just came back from trip through Rajasthan, on my Safari Gx. Here are the statistics.

Car: Safari Gx (aka The Monster)
Distance Covered: 1318 KM
Fuel: Unleaded Diesel
Mileage: 12.76 KM per liter
Top Speed: 160 KMPH

And since I am lazy, I would let the pictures do rest of the talking.

Beautiful Pictures! But, a small log with some more beautiful pictures would do perfect justice to what seems like a great trip!

Jhoomar Baori: the place where we stayed. Fantastic place and Mr. Singh the Manager was kind enough to accompany us on our second jungle safari. The palce hasn't got a swimming pool like every other property at ranthambore, but its the only hotel built inside the forest area and you can actually see the wild animals inside its property. Sambhars and Cheetals are a common sight and if you are lucky enough you can even spot the leopard with roams around in their campus.

Near Ranthambor and Sawai Madhopur I remember there used to an underground temple (if my memory serves me right) with a stream flowing through. Did you visit that place?

Hey dude,

I can't judge the size of those pugmarks in the photo but going by the proportions, they don't look like tiger pug marks. Do you think it could be something smaller? A leopard perhaps.


Nice pictures btw especially the one where the chitals appear to stand in a queue.

Sorry guys, for being away for such a long time. I had an unfortunate accident during my trip to Jamshedpur, ended up burning my hand. Still recovering from the injury, but now I can write/type without pain. So here we go...

The manager is a certain Mr. Singh, can't seem to recall his first name. Very friendly chap. You can get all the info you need at:

Castle Jhoomar Baori Ranthambhore, Reservation for RTDC Hotel Castle Jhoomar Baori through website, e-mail, phone, castlejhoomarbaori, castlejhoomarbaoriranthambhore, hotelcastlejhoomarbaori

Just ask for Mr. Singh, the manager he would do whatever he can to make your stay pleasant, with or without any references.

I didn't see an underground temple, but there surely was a hidden temple built inside the fort which is located right at the gate of the national park.

Thanks mate. The forest ranger/guide said they were tiger's and since I am not an expert of wildlife, didn't had an option but to believe him.
