Much better than the neighbouring Ranthambore NP. You can see many Gharials sunning themselves along the Chambal. Multitude of aquatic birds. A walk in the Chambal ravines is also fascinating.

We spent a morning half day cruise on the Chambal River, something very different from the general hustle and bustle that is India. The sight is about 1 hour from Ranthambore and we were met and driven there by a very knowledgeable guide. A modern,...More
