Rise early for morning coffee and prepare for a truly spectacular sight, the legendary Taj Mahal at daybreak. It is often said that the Taj Mahal changes its colors by every minute depending upon the angle of the sun's rays and, it is best seen either by sunset or sunrise. However, sunrise is the best time for taking pictures of this monument under mild sunlight.
After returning to your hotel, take a 5-6 hrs drive to Ranthambhore.
Ranthambhore has an area of 400 sq. km encompassing rocky hill crests, which descend to open valleys between the Aravalli and Vindhya ranges, dotted with water pools and fruit trees. This park gets its name from the thousand-year-old fortress, which looms above the forest, and is well known for the activity of tigers.
Ranthambhore is a more exceptional and unusual area where a natural present meets a historical past. This dry-deciduous forest system is home to an incredible variety of flora and fauna, with a mix of rolling hills and crags, meadows, and lakes. You can also spot sloth bear, leopard, caracal, jackal, fox, hyena, and mongoose at Ranthambhore. The elusive Indian wolves have been spotted in the park occasionally. Other wildlife such as chital, sambhar deer, the blue bull antelope or nilgai, rhesus macaque, langur, and an incredible variety of birds amidst a setting of a dark, fig, and banyan trees visit this park a delight–for tourists and naturalists alike. Basking crocodiles, a king vulture on a snag, the scream of the serpent eagle, and the alarm calls of spotted deer are some sights and sounds that make this a safari experience like none other.
The 10th-century castle of Ranthambhore dominates the terrain, and valleys are home to numerous cenotaphs, ruins, and abandoned communities that have been overrun by nature, testifying to conflicts and romances from a bygone past.
Arrive at Ranthambhore and check in at the hotel. Stay overnight in Hotel Dev Vilas, a breathtaking view of the Aravali hills of Ranthambhore.
