About Rajaji National Park

If you are a wildlife enthusiast, then there is no better place for you to visit in Dehradun than Rajaji National Park. Now known as a Tiger Reserve, the park is actually an amalgamation of three sanctuaries, namely Rajaji Sanctuary, Motichur Sanctuary and Chilla Sanctuary. The park is spread over a wide area which is estimated to be about 820 kilometers and is situated in the Shivalik Range of Himalayas. It is extremely rich in biodiversity and natural beauty. The park is known to be inhabited by a diverse variety of wildlife. It is home to Tigers, Leopards, Himalayan Bears, Cheetahs, Deer, Wild Boars, Antelopes, Gorals, Jackals, Hyenas, Jungle Cats, Civets, Himalayan Yellow-throated Martens, Sloth Bears, Pythons, King Cobras, Common Kraits, Monitor Lizards, and above all the Asian Elephants. Apart from these, there are also about 400 species of birds found in the park, which make a spectacularly beautiful sight for any bird and nature lover.

Historical Context: Rajaji National Park gets its name from Late Sri C. Rajgopalachari (also known as Rajaji), a famous freedom fighter and first Governor General of India. It was merged with Motichur and Chilla Wildlife Sanctuaries in the year 1983.
