Feeling rather adventurous? Take a ride across the National Park perched atop an elephant or a jeep safari for a quick adventure.

Apart from that, it is also home to several species of snakes, fish, lizards and amphibian species.

Gangotri National Park

One of the most pristine national parks of the country is located near Uttarkashi. Gangotri National park is situated in the foothills of the Himalayas, making for a great trek as you take in the fauna of the place. It is home to some really rare species such as snow leopards, massive mountain bears and the musk deer that are only found in places that are at high altitudes.

The best part about the national park is that it has loosely defined fixed boundaries, meaning that you can come across a wild animal at any time. The treks are also beginner friendly, giving everyone a chance to witness something enthralling.

Gangotri National Park is located 318 kilometers from Delhi.

Sariska Tiger Reserve

To witness some different types of tigers other than the Bengal tiger, head down to Sariska Tiger Reserve. The place will certainly make you forget your troubles as you become one with the wilderness. The deciduous forest not only has many species of tigers, but is also home to a slew of colourful flora.

The wildlife sanctuary is lush with lakes, a variety of endangered species and many species of rare, migratory birds. If you do visit, you could get a chance to see Gharials- an endangered species, a red-crowned roof turtle or even a Ganges river dolphin. At Chambal Wildlife sanctuary, be sure to take your camera because once a wild animal is out of your sight, you may not see it again.
