Sariska Tiger Reserve to have a new tourism circuit

Situated in Alwar district of Rajasthan, Sariska Tiger Reserve is stretched over an area of 866 km² comprising scrub-thorn arid forests, dry deciduous forests. Recently, developed as the state’s wildlife destination, it is smoothly catching pace in the tourism circuit with the attractive landscapes and vast flora & fauna.

The tiger reserve is soon going to give a reason to wildlife enthusiasts to rejoice as Rajasthan government’s tourism department is planning to develop a new tourism circuit with Sarika and its nearby areas.

Beautiful places owned by RTDC at Sariska like Tiger Den and Siliserh, which have immense tourism potential due to their proximity to Delhi and Jaipur, have remained neglected due to several reasons. This year now, the tourism destination will be restored to its pristine glory and as a result, will boost the tourism potential of the entire state.

Tourism and wildlife go hand-in-hand at national parks, and very soon the travelers and wildlife enthusiasts visiting Rajasthan will get a chance to enjoy safaris in all the zones of Sariska Tiger Reserve.

Standard

The popular luxury trains of Rajasthan – Palace on Wheels and Royal Rajasthan on Wheels are soon going to get a major makeover.  Being sensitive towards the expectations of the travelers, the Indian Railways and RTDC have decided to refurbish the trains with new heritage look adorned by the finest trappings one can expect from a luxe train.

All the facilities  in the trains are being modernized including water purifiers in washrooms aside from superior communication and entertainment devices. Even the dining cart, the bar and lounge will be given a new look. The spa and health club will also get major upgrades.

As for the RROW makeover, the wooden floors would be covered with exquisite carpets to minimize noise. Further, new doors will replace existing ones. Besides, the train speed will also be increased so that guests spend less time on wheels and enjoy more time at the destinations. However, the itinerary and tariffs for the trains will remain same in 2013-14.

Bon Voyage…
