About Tiges and Birds with Golden Triangle Tour

A perfect blend of culture and nature, this itinerary is for the inquisitive soul. Delhi has been the epicenter for various historic moments in India. Taking a day to witness the century old forts, the struggle behind India’s independence and the rugged charm of Old Delhi, this city is a whirlwind of culture.
Agra and Jaipur too house some of the biggest and most prestigious heritage monuments for India. Home to one of the seven wonders of the world, The Taj Mahal, it will be a shame to not have visited Agra to get a glimpse of the pristine white marbled beauty. An ode of love from the Mughal Emperor Shah Jehan to his beloved wife Mumtaz Mehal, this enigma took 22 years and 20,000+ workers to build. With architectural influences from around the world, it deserves to be one of the seven wonders.
Jaipur rises with its forts and centuries of history behind those old walls. A pretty site of luxury and royalty, this pink latticed city is the heart and soul of all culture in India. Based in the sandy desert state of Rajasthan, this city will sit perfectly with your trip to Ranthambore National Park. A jungle known for its slightly mained Tigers and Rajputana hunting grounds in the past, this park has come a long way to pave a journey to conservation.
The most diverse birding area, Bharatpur Bird Sanctuary, also officially called the Keoladeo National Park, has around 350 species of beautiful birds chirping around. Colorfully frolicking through the sanctuary, these birds are not the only residents. There are a number of winter migratory birds that make their way to Bharatpur.
Talking of beautiful wildlife, Corbett National Park is no less. In fact, it is one of the best national parks in India when it comes to wildlife and landscape. With the Ramganga flowing through and through the jungle and the scenic view of the Himalayan Foothills, Corbett has an abundance to offer, if only you’re patient enough to take it all in.
Another advantage that Corbett has is its Dhikala Zone and the Dhikala Forest Rest House. It lies deep in the lap of Terai wilderness, with alarm calls and roars as a background score. A tiger safari through this sal forest is a must to quench your adventure adrenaline.
Located in the Aravalli Range in Rajasthan, Ranthambore National Park lays right in the heart of the action packed Golden Triangle. Easy to travel to in a short time, it is an ideal park for someone who has little time on hand. With a thriving Tiger population, a Tiger Safari at Ranthambore offers the best chance of witnessing the big cat at close quarters.
