The Rajaji National Park is located in the Uttarakhand state in the Shivalik range of the Himalayas. It can be approached easily from Haridwar (around 20 kms) or Dehradun ( around 50 kms). The nearest airport is Jolly Grant, Dehradun. It can also be approached easily from New Delhi through train or buses heading towards Haridwar or Dehradun. Though the... More

Its an interesting drive in the Rajaji park. You can take your own high clearance vehicle or get one of the Gypsies available. Booking and getting into the park is a bit of chaos but the drive inside is nice.

As we were staying in rishkesh, we found this as a possible activity. We so lot of bird life including the hornbill. Though we did miss the tiger. But overall there were quite a few animals.

We dropped in at the park on our way to Dehradoon. Experienced lack of common facilities which ought to be given to tourists. We almost passed the entrance without noticing it. No directions or signboard seen during our long drive. No bathroom. No food. We were past visiting times seen on website but took a chance and fortunately a jeep... More

On the whole i would say the whole thing is not worth it. We visited this end of April 2015 and opted to land up their morning. We were ready 5:30 but the driver was 30-40 minutes late so we actually ended up at the gates around 7 ish. In the whole journey we saw a fleeting leopard, umpteen peacocks,... More

We were in Rishikesh last week and read in the newspapers that the Govt. of India has recognised this park as a National park and as a Tiger Reserve. Being wild life enthusiast having been to many national parks across India, we were excited at this. Looked at their website and tried to call all the numbers mentioned but none... More

Rajaji (Chilla Gate) gives a unique, secluded and authentic jungle safari experience. Our guide expertly spotted bull elephants, tiger and heyena tracks and dozens of impressive birds. Two other groups saw tigers. One of the reason's you may be more likely to see a tiger in Corobett(Besides higher density) is there are usually hordes of tourists surrounding the animal by... More

The jungle ride was very good but it plagued my mind that it was a very dishonest set up. There were several touts roaming around, who were volunteering to purchase tickets for the park. The fee is Rs 150/- per person and vehicle entry fee was Rs. 250/-. As we refused the touts and stood in line ourselves, we found... More

Although the first half hour of scenery was outstanding with plenty of prey animals on route, overall it was very dissapointing.The last third of the route was dull and difficult terrain. It would of been impossible for animals to exist in that area as it steep and felt like a mountain pass. The guide/driver also picked up a local woman... More

I've visited Rajaji National park with family in January 2015. I've booked the 2:30 - 5:30 PM safari through the local tour operator. Our tour started through chilla gate @ 2:30 PM and it spanned for exactly 3 hours. The driver is very experienced and he can spot the animals from very far away. For the first 30 minutes, we've...
