With the end of the summer and the onset of Monsoon, it’s time to say good-bye to your frequent trips to jungle across India. All the tiger reserves and National Parks of India including Ranthambhore National Park and Sariska will be closed from July 1 and will reopen for wildlife tourism from October 01, 2014, which is the annual feature of the parks for the monsoon.
As per the forest officials and experts, it is this time of the year that many animals and thousands of egrets, herons, storks, cormorants, darters, spoonbills and ibises breed and the entry of tourists might pose as a disturbance in their mating and cause problem for them. During these months the wild animals turn aggressive and need complete isolation. These aspects along with other maintenance works of the Forest Department are necessary for closing of parks. Therefore the parks are closed. However, in Sariska, religious tourists to temple at Pandupole will be allowed on Fridays and Saturdays.
Till then, will miss the chilling cacophony of languor shrieks, sambar calls, chirping of birds and the sight of a fierce tiger enjoying its prey or playing with its cubs.
Lets join hands to wish the denizens of jungle a safe monsoon !!!
