More about Rajaji National Park, Dehradun and Historical Information

Rajaji National Park is a paradise for nature lovers and wildlife enthusiasts located in Uttarakhand. The park is well-known for its scenic beauty and rich biodiversity that serve as a major attraction. It was back in 1983 when Rajaji National Park was created by merging Rajaji Wildlife Sanctuary with Motichur and Chilla wildlife sanctuaries. The park has been named after a  popular freedom fighter and first governor-general of India, Late Sri C. Rajgopalachari who was affectionately called Rajaji. Sprawling across an area of 820.42 sqr km, the Rajaji National Park is open to visitors only from Mid-November to Mid-June. The park houses avian species which are found in open grassland and in forested foothills.Rajaji is beautifully nestled in the Shivalik ranges and the beginning of the vast Indo–Gangetic plains. The park thus represents vegetation of several distinct zones and forest types including sal forests, riverine forests, board–leaved mixed forests, scrubland and grassy.The diversity of species in this park is a result of its location in a transition zone between temperate western Himalaya and central Himalaya. There are over 400 bird species including Greater Scaup, Black-bellied Tern, Pallas’s Fish Eagle, Tytler’s Leaf Warbler, White-naped Woodpecker, Great Hornbill, Northern Goshawk, Scaly Thrush, Snowy-browed Flycatcher, Rusty-flanked Treecreeper, Black-necked Stork, Yellow-billed Blue Magpie, Pale-footed Bush Warbler, Green Avadavat and Reed Bunting.
