The Forest Department has unveiled an exciting development for nature enthusiasts and history lovers alike. A brand-new trail is constructed leading to Roothi Rani's palace nestled along the picturesque shores of Jaisamand Lake. This carefully crafted trail, spanning a length of 2.5 kilometers, promises not only ease of access but also a captivating journey for tourists. The initiative aims to enhance the overall experience, allowing visitors to immerse themselves in the historical charm of the palace and savor breathtaking views of the serene lake and its scenic surroundings.
To access the wildlife safari, visitors can obtain their entry tickets at the Forest Department office located near the palace on the shore. The entry ticket is priced at Rs 130 per person. For those opting for a more immersive experience, jeep rentals are available at a cost of Rs 800. These jeeps can accommodate up to 6 passengers, providing a comfortable and shared adventure through the picturesque surroundings. The safari operates daily from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM, allowing ample time for visitors to explore the diverse flora and fauna within the designated safari area.
In addition to the safari, tourists have the opportunity to partake in boating activities on the lake, enhancing their overall experience with the natural beauty of the surroundings. Ranger Gautam Meena has revealed that this new trail will boost eco-tourism. The variety of wildlife adds a thrilling dimension to the eco-tourism experience. Moreover, during the winter season, a special treat awaits as crocodiles can be easily spotted basking in the sun along the trail.
This year, the Forest Department has introduced leopard safaris at Jaisamand Sanctuary, unveiling two tracks measuring 14 and 22 kilometers, respectively. The sanctuary's entry gate is conveniently situated along the Udaipur-Banswara Highway. Within the immersive safari experience, tourists have the opportunity to observe a diverse array of wildlife, ranging from Leopards and Wild Boars to Nilgai, Peacocks and Monkeys. To partake in this adventure, a jeep can be rented for Rs 2,800, covering both the entry ticket and the safari journey. Additionally, visitors are required to pay a separate eco-surcharge to contribute to conservation efforts.
