Northeast of Jaipur and southeast of Alwar, the Sariska National Park is known for hiking and trekking in the India state of Rajasthan. It is a 273 square kilometer national park known for leopards and four-horned deers. There are also many tigers, but most are nocturnal.

The landscape of Sariska comprises of hills and narrow valleys of the Aravali hill range. During the monsoon season, the forests become very lush. But during the dry months of February through May, there is a shortage of water and the animals gather at watering holes. The topography of Sariska supports scrub-thorn arid forests, dry deciduous forests, rocks and grasses.

To reach Sariska National Park by driving, there are relatively easy roads from Delhi (200km) and Jaipur (107km). Buses between Delhi and Jaipur also go via Alwar and Sariska.

To reach Sariska National Park by train, use the railroad station at Alwar (35km). There are taxis and buses from Alwar to the park.

To reach Sariska National Park by air, use the airport in Jaipur (110km) which is the capital of Rajasthan.

Note: In any national park known to have lions or tigers, hikers need to exercise extreme caution. It is highly recommended to us a park-approved guide prior to hiking or trekking in these regions.

Overall, Sariska National Park is the 11th most popular hiking trail of all 42 hikes in India.
