RAJAJI NATIONAL PARK RESORT

RAJAJI NATIONAL PARK RESORT – A SERENE GET AWAY FROM CITY STRESS

RAJAJI NATIONAL PARK RESORT The modern way of living is dynamic yet distant from the bliss of nature, greenery, and the raw benefits of the environment. Cities are only growing, and so is the rise in lifestyle diseases, incidents of stress, and depressive working hours. All this combined makes ‘Jack a dull boy’ even amid all possible technological advancements humans can achieve. So, what do we do? As our revered Buddha said, we must find a balance, a middle path. We need to include an aspect of nature in our life to enhance our overall well-being.

A BRIEF HISTORY

1983 saw a Mergence of Rajaji Wildlife Sanctuary of Uttaranchal with Motichur and Chilla wildlife sanctuaries that gave us this majestic beauty called RAJAJI NATIONAL PARK. The Park draws its name after the late C. Rajgopalachari (also known as Rajaji), a famous freedom fighter and last governor-general of independent India. Rajaji was among the first few recipients of India’s highest civilian award Bharat Ratna in 1954.

A BRIEF GEOGRAPHY

Being located in a transition zone between temperate western Himalaya and central Himalaya, the Park has a splendid species diversity that quickly gets etched in the eyes of the visitors. Representing the Shiwalik ecosystem, the Park spreads over the Pauri Garhwal, Dehradun, and Saharanpur districts of Uttarakhand. The Motichur and Rajaji sanctuaries are contiguous and are separated from the Chilla Sanctuary by the river Ganga and the river Chilla. River Song is also a significant attraction in the Park that echoes the sound of various species of migratory birds. It spreads over an area of 820.42 sq km and is open to visitors only between Mid-November to Mid-June.

 

THE PARK – HIGHLIGHTS

Outside Haridwar, the Park was granted a Tiger Reserve status in 2015. It has become the second Tiger Reserve in Uttarakhand after Corbett Tiger Reserve.

THE FLORA

The Park lies at the confluence where mountains meet the plains, making this junction a wonderland for all kinds of forests. We have broadleaved deciduous forests, scrubland, riverine vegetation, and pine and grasslands sub-systems that present a wide range of relevant factors for all types of flora.
The under-wood is sparingly present with a light density, consisting of Rohini Mallotus philippensis, our favorite Amaltas, Shisham, Palash, Sal, Arjun, Semul, Baans, Amla, Khair, Kachnar, Chilla, etc.

THE FAUNA

The Park is the north-western distribution limit for both elephants and tigers in India. Among the Park residents, elephants are the most famous and can be easily sighted as we drive through the jungle. The dense green forestry has become a safe habitat for all kinds of animals, e.g., Mountain goats, Goral, Chital, Sambhar, Barking Deer, Hog Deer, Nilgai, and Wild Pig, and Sloth Bear. Carnivores like tigers, Leopards, and Leopard cats are not always visible but do inhabit the jungle. Other animals like Dhole, Indian hare, King cobra, Indian Langur, Monitor lizard, Python, Wild boar, and Indian porcupine are residents of this gigantic ecosystem.

In Rajaji, Over 300 species of birds can be tracked here, including residents and migrants. The most critical avian species include vultures, barbets, peafowl, kingfishers, woodpeckers, and pheasants. Migratory birds mostly visit during the winter when chilly breezes make it hard for them to live in the extreme temperate zones. The migratory birds cross over the Himalayas to make Rajaji their home for a few months.
