About Rajaji National Park

Rajaji National Park, which covers 819.54 square kilometres as the core zone and 255.63 square kilometres as the buffer zone, is nestled amid the scenic highlands of the Shiwalik range and opens up onto the Indo-Gangetic plains of the Uttarakhand State. Chilla Rajaji National Park has enormous conservation value since it is the northernmost limit of distribution for endangered species such as the tiger, Asian elephant, Great Pied Hornbill, and King cobra. It is a major portion of the Terai-Arc Landscape (7500 square kilometres) between the Yamuna River in the north-west and the Sharda River in the south-east. It is also a vital component of the Shiwalik Elephant Reserve.

When C. Rajgopalchari, the first Indian Governor General, visited Dehradun in 1948, he was invited for a hunting expedition to the shooting block of the old Dehradun Forest Division. When the Governor General saw the pristine forest abounding with wildlife, he declined to hunt and instead urged that the region be set aside for forest and wildlife conservation. This eventually led to the establishment of the Rajaji Wildlife Sanctuary, named after C. Rajagopalachari, affectionately known as 'Rajaji'.

With the combination of Chilla and Motichur Wildlife Sanctuary, as well as the similar forest areas of West Dehradun, East Dehradun, Shiwalik, and Lansdowne Forest Division, the Rajaji Wildlife Sanctuary was raised to the status of a National Park in 1983. Rajaji National Park Haridwar's limits were named Rajaji Tiger Reserve on September 14, 2015. The river Ganga divides the National Park into two sections as it flows for around 24 kilometres through it. Safari Reservations for Rajaji National Park
