Chilla :- Rajaji National Park

Watch a family of elephants here as they go about their daily routine and try to pick out their distinct personalities and understand social hierarchies.

Chilla Rajaji has the largest population of elephants in Uttarakhand (over 500) giving you excellent opportunities to study the pachyderms. Rajaji is also the first staging ground for migratory birds once they cross over the Himalayas into the Indian subcontinent, so you are bound to meet many feathered visitors in the winter months . Rajaji is spread over 820 square kilometres and was formed in 1983 by merging three wildlife sanctuaries - Chilla, Motichur and Rajaji . The Ganges cuts through these forests and is home to a wide variety of fish like trout, mahseer and chilwa . The park was named after C. Rajagopalachari who was a prominent leader during the Indian freedom struggle from the British. Jungle safaris are offered at two locations currently, Chilla and Motichur Ranges . Visitors can enter from one of the seven gates at Ramgarh, Mohand, Ranipur, Motichur, Chilla, Kunao and Laldhang .

What you can do inside the park :- Take a game drive during the winter months of October to February when the migratory birds descend. March and April offer the best weather for outdoor treks and overnight camping. The summer months of May through June might be very hot but it is also the best time for spotting wildlife. The park is closed.
