The Place and The People
Northern India is home to a dazzling array of cultures, religions & ethinicities. Simply walking through the bustling streets of New Delhi, you’ll encounter towering Hindu temples, ornate Islamic architecture and food stalls selling treats from all over South Asia. The area is also the epicenter of some of the last remaining wild tigers in the region.
Once the private hunting grounds of the Maharajas of Jaipur, Ranthambore National Park is now one of India’s largest protected sanctuaries for tigers where populations are rebounding after years of decline. Amongst the ruins of 1000 year old forts, these tigers live in their natural habitat hunting, sleeping and protecting their territory. The villages that surround the park are home to traditional communities where women in colorful saris can be seen tending the fields, camels and cows dot the roads and bustling outdoor markets hum with activity through the day.
