Sariska Tiger Reserve has two new additions

Posted on Mon, 10/20/2014 - 19:01 by easytours
 

Rajasthan’s Sariska Tiger Reserve recently announced a tigress has given birth to two cubs.

“Two cubs … [were] spotted Thursday evening through camera traps,” a field director with the reserve recently told the media.


Sariska Tiger Reserve’s tiger population is up to 13 after two new cubs were spotted this summer.

Officials with the tiger reserve said that the cubs appear to be four- to five-months-old and healthy. The two cubs represent only the second set of new tiger births in the Sariska reserve since adult tigers were moved here from the nearby Ranthambore Tiger Reserve in 2008.

Poaching inside the reserve decimated the tiger population in the early 2000s. A population survey between 2005 and 2006 found no trace of tigers in the reserve, and officials arranged to have 7 breeding-age adults moved to the park from the Ranthambore Tiger Reserve while increasing park security to protect against illegal hunting and trapping.

The two new cubs bring the total population of tigers inside the Sariska reserve to 13.



Pench National Park

Posted on Thu, 10/16/2014 - 16:33 by easytours
 

Pench is a close neighbor to Kanha in terms of proximity, but stands on its own in terms of geography. Pench is a mostly flat parcel and is home to a large Teak forest. Legend has it that this was the place that provided Rudyard Kipling the inspiration and setting for his iconic novel, The Jungle Book. Although not one of the more noted parks for tiger sightings, there is a large and wonderful array of animals and flora here. The scenic and wide Pench River gives life to this amazing national treasure.

Panna National Park

Posted on Thu, 10/16/2014 - 16:11 by easytours
 

Located immediately north of Bandhavgarh, Panna is only slightly larger than its neighbor thus making it a smaller sized park. It is a great park to insert after a visit to Khajuraho, as it is only around 50 km away. Panna has been the source of some mystery over the last few years, as the tiger population has dwindled down to almost non-existence. What is lacks in big cats however, it makes up for in flora and fowl. The many streams and waterfalls attract large flocks of varied species of birds. The terrain is undulating and very heavily forested.

Nagarhole National Park

In the south of India, near the Western Ghat range, lies the best park for spotting India’s icon: the elephant. Nagarhole is blessed with a wide array of geographical features making it one of the most beautiful spots on the sub-continent. The beautiful Kabini River nourishes the canopy of teak and rosewood, some of which reach 100ft. Tigers are present here in significant numbers, but this park is a must see for the pachyderm lover.

 



Visas on Arrival to be offered to U.S. Citizens

Posted on Thu, 10/16/2014 - 15:39 by easytours
 

During a recent trip to New York City Narendra Modi, India’s recently elected president, announced that the Indian government would be extending visa on arrival services to U.S. citizens as early as the first of next year.

Modi made the announcement during a speech delivered in front of a crowd of thousands at Madison Square Garden during his first trip to the U.S. as the President of India.


Modi’s government is hoping that an easier visa process will lead to more international tourism traffic in locations like Humayun’s Tomb in Delhi.

The current government is predicting the new, easier visa process to lead to a boost in inbound tourism to the Indian subcontinent. To accommodate the predicated increase in travelers, new facilities are being planned and current facilities will be upgraded to handle the potentially increased workload.

It’s likely that visa on arrival services will be similarly extended to other countries including the United Kingdom and Canada, but full details regarding the roll out of the new program have yet to be made available.
