Rajaji National Park Dehradun: A Wild Life Getaway

On the next day of our Dehradun trip we decided to visit the Rajaji national park, which is a premier holiday destination for vacationers from all over the country. This national park is mostly preferred by families to spend quality time with each other on weekends. I was quite sure that Prabhdeep would have a gala time at this place. So we headed towards the Rajaji National park which is located at 5/1, Ansari road at the Mohand Range of Dehradun. It is easily commutable via public transport and hence it was no tedious affair to reach the destination.

As we reached the national park I could already see my kid filled with energy and joy to be at this place of wilderness. Like ours may other families had also gathered in the park to experience the beauty of nature and spend time in the calm and natural settings. The Rajaji national park is a beautiful national park that is administered by the Principal chief Conserver of Forests, Uttarakhand. It is also a proposed Tiger reserve and is located at the foot hills of Himalayas which makes it a perfect site for tourists who adore nature.

The national park stretches over a huge area of 820 square kilometres of land that is spread over three districts of the state of Uttarakhand, namely Dehradun, Haridwar and Pauri Garhwal. Earlier there were three different wildlife sanctuaries Chilla, Rajaji and Motichur sanctuaries in these districts. They were merges into one in the year 1983. This park has been name after the great leader of India, C Rajagopalachari who is awarded the highest civilian award of India, Bharat Ratna in 1954.

The park was sprawling with rich varieties of flora and fauna species. Prabhdeep was so amazed to see the variety of animals that include the Asian Elephant, Bengal tiger, Leopard, Goral, Jungle cat, Striped Hyena, Sloth bear, Indian hare, Jackal, king cobra, Indian langur, wild Boar, Barking deer and numerous other species of mammals. It was truly a walk with nature at the Rajaji national park of Dehradun; we all enjoyed to the brim and were looking forward to our stay at this beautiful hill station.
