The park is open almost whole year-round, but for wildlife viewing and your comfort it is best to visit from October to April. Safaris are provided by jeep.

Pandu Pole 
Perhaps the most rewarding excursion one could make from of Sariska is of Pandu Pol, situated at a distance of 22 kms. It is believed that Pandu brothers, five heroes of epic Mahabharata, once passed through the Sariska valley while they were relentlessly pursued by the Kauravas. At the head of the valley, their passage was barred by a huge rock. Bhima, the strongest of the Pandavas, pulled out a tree from the hillside and struck the rock, which gave way under his mighty blow. This Place is a beautiful gorge through which waterfalls throughout the rainy season and up to November. Thick ferns and shrubs of various kinds cover this place.

Sariska Palace
 Maharaja Jai Singh of Alwar built the Sariska palace to serve as their lodge during their hunting trips. The main attractions of the palace consist of extensive lawns, beautiful antique furniture and photographs of the 1920's Royal Shikar (hunting trips). The palace has now been converted into a heritage hotel.

Kankwari Fort
Dating back to the time of the Mughals, Kankwari Fort is the only fort in Sariska. The fort towers above a hill, providing an overview of the Kankwari plateau and the Gujjar villages around it. Showing a Mughal connection with Sariska, this historic monument has some history attached to it. As per the historical records, Aurangzeb imprisoned the eldest son of Shahjahan, his elder brother, Prince Dara Shikoh here. However, the fort now stands mostly in ruins, because of a lack of proper maintenance. If lucky, you may spot Leopards roaming around this area to find some food and solitude.
