Photos India north

In March 2013 I went with some friends to India and we travelled through the states of Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh and Maharashtra.. The first week we visited the impressive and magnificent palaces, forts and temples of Jaipur, Agra, Gwalior, Orchha and Khajuraho. Everywhere we saw colorful and friendly people and great contrasts between rich and poor, old and modern, ...

We did safaris in four national parks (Keoladeo, Panna, Banhavgarh and Tadoba) where we spotted many wild boars, deers, monkeys, jackals and birds. Our main goal was to look for the endangered Bengal tigers. And yes we were very fortunate because we had 7 sightings of this magnificent animal and were able to shoot some very good photos. We even witnessed an attack of a tigress on some sambar deers. Moreover, we could also spot a shy sloth bear.
