Hunting Ground of the Holkars!
Back when Holkars ruled Indore, Ralamandal served as a hunting ground for the royal family members because this locale boasted of an umpteen variety of wildlife, including tigers, leopards and deer. Established back in 1980s, this sanctuary still attracts hordes of visitors from all over and is famous amidst birders as well! There is also a Forest Rest House available for booking, for those who wish to stay the night in this haven to absorb this scenic beauty here in all its glory.
Along with brutes and a plethora of winged beauties, you can also find different species of plants like eucalyptus, bamboo, chandan, teak and so on! But don't go touching the leaves of random plants here because in the midst of your visit, you might end up with an allergic reaction and immediate medical help may not be available.
Trek through the criss-cross paths here, shadowed by trees!
Ralamandal Wildlife Sanctuary is the ideal place for you, if you wish to take up a trek through the criss-cross paths here, shadowed by trees! But even if you are not particularly excited about a journey through the sanctuary on foot, there is no need to worry. The sanctuary offers bikes and cycles for hire, for you to ride on.
Another very interesting tourist attraction of the Ralamandal Wildlife Sanctuary is its facility of camel rides, which is quite popular amid children.
