This park was formed by the amalgamation of the Chilla sanctuary, motichur sanctuary and Rajaji sanctuary and is spread over the districts of Dehradun, Haridwar and Pauri Garhwal of Uttarakhand. The Chilla gate of the Rajaji National Park is just at a distance of 19kms from Rishikesh. Here... More

Rajaji National Park is likely to draw incredulous looks from people as to where that is. Everyone has heard of nearby Corbett National Park, perhaps a byword for NPs in India. Rajaji remains obscure which is as well for it lends the park an untrammelled quality. We stayed at Junglee Resort which is deep inside the National Park. One has... More

I do not know what Rajaji national park used to be and how it got listed in the places where you can go for a jungle safari, i just know that it is not a place for safari anymore. The local guides are trying hard to retain the status but it really isn't even a proper forest. I went through... More

A lesser know sanctuary - go for the very common elephant sightings. We were lucky enough to see a leopard - crossing right in front of our jeep. Great safari

We stayed one night in... More

A very nice place to visit. Though we were not able to see much of a wild life except a few deers and cocks/hens, we found the place a very picturesque.We visited a day after a heavy rain in May. As per the local guide, post rain you may not find much animals as they move deep into the forest.

There was a heavy rains and we were all drenched , mixed experience. Our driver Mahesh was good but the authorities need to be more sensitive about... More

Frankly by paying the entry fee and riding a safari gypsy if someone is expecting the wildlife to appear along the tracks, its better you spend your time in other activities. The Motichur gate of the Raja Ji National Park is located on the elephant corridor and is of critical importance for our elephants. The safari after a beer break... More
