Wild Rajasthan

India's golden triangle is a tourist circuit which connects the national capital Delhi, Agra and Jaipur. The Golden Triangle is so called because of the triangular shape formed by the locations of New Delhi, Agra and Rajasthan on a map. The trips usually start in Delhi moving south to the site of Taj Mahal at Agra, then west, to the desert landscapes of Rajasthan. It is normally possible to do the trip by coach or private journey through most tour operators. The Golden Triangle is now a well traveled route providing a good spectrum of the country's different landscapes. The circuit is about 720 km by road. Each leg is about 4 to 6 hours of drive. The Shatabdi express train also connects Delhi with Agra and Jaipur. Rajasthan is known as a hot and arid destination which is also home to the famed Thar Desert. However, this India’s largest state is still quite rich in wildlife and is blessed with a variety of vegetation and a plethora of animal and bird species. In fact, Rajasthan is one of the top destinations in India for tiger sighting and birdwatching. For tiger sighting, Rajasthan offers Ranthambore National while for birdwatching, UNESCO World Heritage Site Keoladeo National park along with Tal Chhapar, Van Vihar, and Jorbeed make for the best destinations in the state. The Desert National Park is home to the critically endangered species of Great Indian Bustard. Apart from these, Rajasthan is home to a large number of leopards, blackbuck, great Indian spotted eagle, and marsh crocodiles.
