Rathambore is lightly forested in the lower reaches, and it is also possible to make a pilgrimage to the old fort (where it is much drier scrubland). This park is famous for tigers although we did not see any.



1/8/2006: A two day visit to go on the tiger drive and also to check out the old fort.
