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.
