  • Forest m jaane nahi diya bus bakki sb gazab
  • This preserve is located at a distance of 8 kilometers from Haridwar. It lies on the banks of the river Ganga, amidst the Shivalik range of mountains. It is a part of the famous Rajaji National Park. The fauna dwelling in Chilla is elephants, spotted deer, stage deer, Neelgai bull, wild bear, fox, porcupine, jungle fowls and peacocks. One can also watch a collection of migratory birds in this park.
  • Raja ji National Park, Tiger reserve of India, we stayed there in the month of October when Jungle Safari is closer but managed to have a glimpse of elephant and deers roaming around early in the morning .
