How To Reach Sariska Tiger Reserve
Aptly described as the Land of the Maharajas, Rajasthan has a vibrant and colourful heritage which speaks volumes of the forts, monuments and palaces on the one side and the Great Indian Desert on the other. The Sariska National Park and Tiger Reserve in the Alwar District of Rajasthan, once the hunting grounds of the former Alwar State, is one of the largest tiger sanctuaries in India.
Sariska lies close to cities like Delhi and Jaipur. Though Sariska does not boast of an airport or railway station of its own, it’s easy to reach the Sariska National Park from any of the major cities. If you plan on visiting the Reserve, here’s how you can get there.
The closest airport is Sanganer airport in Jaipur. It has domestic flights to almost all major cities in India and International flights to Sharjah, Muscat, Dubai and chartered flights to London and Dublin. From the airport you can hire a taxi or board a bus to the city of Jaipur. From Jaipur, it’s a journey of about 2 hours by road to Sariska Tiger Reserve.
Sariska Tiger Reserve lies on the Delhi-Alwar-Jaipur Road. Tourist taxis or regular bus services connect Sariska Tiger Reserve to Jaipur (107 km), Alwar (36 km) and Delhi (240 km) away. The best way to reach the Reserve is by road from Alwar which takes about an hour. Delhi to Sariska by road takes approximately 4 hours, and 2 hours if you are travelling from Jaipur.
If your itinerary is to take a train to Sariska Tiger Reserve, the nearest railway station is Alwar Junction. The junction is a central halt for trains for most Indian cities including Jaipur, Delhi, Gwalior, Ghaziabad, Meerut and Mumbai. You can pick a train from any of these cities for Alwar Junction. There are tourist taxis that drive from Alwar Junction to Sariska Tiger Reserve.
