About Rajaji National Park in Dehradun

An Indian national park located near Dehradun, Rajaji National Park is more than just what it is. The place is also a tiger reserve located on the foothills of the Himalayas in the Shivaliks. This beautiful national park is sprawled over a gigantic area of 820.42 sq kilometers. There are three rivers that pass through this area, namely the Ganges, Chilla, and Song Rivers. The majority of the districts of Saharanpur, Dehradun, Rishikesh, Pauri Garhwal are covered in the area of the Rajaji National Park Rishikesh. The forests are dense here and there are different kinds of animals and birds species here. Note that Rajaji National Park distance from Dehradun is 60.6 km which takes approximately 1 hour 43 minutes to complete the journey.

History of Rajaji National Park

There are other wildlife sanctuaries nearby like Chilla and Motichur. In the year 1983, these sanctuaries were merged with Rajaji National Park Dehradun. This place was so named after a famous freedom fighter Late Shri C. Rajgopalachari, also known as Rajaji. He was also the first Governor-General of India. Earlier, the park was restricted to just Saharanpur and Haridwar area. In the year 1983, the nearby Chilla and Motichur were merged with the existing area of the national park, thereby making it one of the largest national parks in India.

Rajaji National Park Location

This National Park is situated in the foothills of Shivalik ranges located in the Himalayan foothills. A beautiful representation of the Shivalik eco-system, the park is a place that has conserved the greenery and the wildlife species of the area effectively. The area covers three sanctuaries and Chilla, Motichur, and Rajaji and combines together to form Rajaji National Park. The Motichur and Rajaji sanctuaries share a common border and they are separated by Chilla Sanctuary on their south-east side by the Ganga and Chilla Rivers. Both Motichur and Rajaji sanctuaries lie on the northern side of Shiwalik Ridge. They are dissected by a plethora of ravines carrying water from the main ridge. From here on, the stream flows into the plains becoming broader. For the most part of the year, these streams remain dry. However, they become raging torrents once the monsoons hit Rajaji National Park in Dehradun, Uttarakhand.

The Forest Of Dehradun National Park

The National Park has a dense forest cover. The forest type here is diverse with different kinds of trees. There are trees ranging from semi-evergreen to deciduous and mixed broad-leaved to terai grassland. All of this has been classified as the Indus-Ganges Monsoon Forest type. In many parts of the national park, lofty strands of sal trees dominate the area.

Be it hotel or Cabs, everything was ready at the time required and no hassle for booking or itinerary.

We will rate PC TOUR AND TRAVELS a 10/10 for their efforts. Highly Recommded for everyone to plan their trips.

    The trip was great. Only confusion on navigating the trip places. The Base camp was first booked for the initial days of trip, which went for last day of the trip. The camp was really far from rishikesh. So we travelled back from Dehradun to the base camp. This travel time we would have utilized in a better way. Apart from this the memorable trip , this trip was special as only 2 girls went on to explore. Safety wise and hygiene all were taken care. Thanks Surav..

    Ashwini's 8 days trip to Dehradun

    Hotels were good.. all staff was helpful. Most liked hotel is Urmi, Haridwar Cab service and cab driver mr Rakesh sir was very polite humble and trustworthy. We enjoyed his company. Found mesmerizing experience in Kausani hotel as I find hotel is in mid of hills... surrounded with nature and far away from city.. you can hear sound of all birds chirping.. and can found different spacies of birds than usual.. loved it.. The only thing I didn't liked is there is not proper arrangement for cab drivers as they have to sleep in cab itself.. I would like to choose hotels which are also providing guest house to cab drivers for my next trip with travel traingle.. Jim Corbett safari was all together a different experience.. it's out of the world.. you can find peace in jungle

    Narmada's 6 days trip to Dehradun

    Nikita was incredibly helpful in creating a tour package exactly the way I wanted. Just had few issues regarding how rushed I felt while making payments and sudden changes in the payment schedule. Otherwise everything was perfect thanks. The cab driver Neeraj ji was a kind and very patient man. He would take a lot of care while driving in such dangerous ghats and narrow roads. He was very careful because my mother is a senior citizen and can't handle speed. He is a skilled and patient driver and we had a very good trip thanks to him as well. I just have one issue, he spits a lot!!! Right on the roads while driving. This is a bad behaviour during normal times itself, but this being Covid times it's twice as horrible!! That is my only issue with him, otherwise he's an excellent driver and a good person in general. Some of the best memories with my mom. Boating, beautiful scenery, amazing weather and food. Great people and hospitality. Beautiful holiday!! Thank you so much for helping create such wonderful memories.

    Santha's 6 days trip to Dehradun

    Krishna Holidays arranged family trip to Uttarakhand (Rishikesh, Chopta, Joshimath, Auli) This is one of the memorable trip for us. There were unpleasant situation during my trip with Krishna Holidays team 1. Charan, Driver didn't have adequate information about my tour itinerary and we missed few places. This should have been provided by Krishna Holidays and ensure Driver understood itinerary clearly. 2. I really felt bad that Charan, Driver didn't have adequate cash during the trip.. he borrowed money from me for Fuel, a few times for Food.... Ensure that the driver has adequate money during each travel plan and the driver carries valid vehicle documents. This would really help Krishna holidays to the next level. 3. As per Itinerary (Day 4 | 24 March 2021| | Auli Sightseeing), clearly mentioned that "After breakfast Process to Auli by Ropeway, Auli Lake and skiing in Auli, Auli Himalaya Range View Point Auli to Gorsan Track then Process to Resort Check in into resort and overnight stay in Auli." But Sushmitha mentioned that Ropeway was not part of the package... it looks contradictory.... I sent email to Krishna Holidays. So far not received any response. Now I'm forced to provide feedback in public forum. Note: To ensure a smooth trip, I brought a Ropeway ticket on my own and proceeded with the trip.
