  • Good park or forest surrounded by people, tourist place for government to earn money. Elephants are the most here followed by dears, jungle safari is also available for the tourist,clean roads, lovely sight seeing but beware of animals and do not go near to the water.
  • It's a place for nature lover. One will see wild animals up close. I got to see elephants and bear. Price of package is also affordable. For true nature lover it's heaven on earth
  • Wonderful visiting place. Couples and good who like adventure. Forest River trees hills lovers must visit and enjoy sighting
  • Rajaji national park is very near to my village its very big park but you can not walk through without vehicle.
  • A good place for a very casual trek. Scenic view of entire Haridwar city and climbing to the top using ropeway is also a pleasant experience
