Rajaji National Park of India-
Rajaji National Park is nestled between the Indo-Gangetic plains and the Shivalik ranges. This park is predominantly formed from dense green jungles that make it a habitat for a number of animals. This park came in the light in April 2010 when a forest fire which started on the fringes of the park, spread out over a large area and threatened the Chandi Devi Temple. The park is best place for the distribution for both elephants and tigers in India. This park is also a noteworthy residence of mountain goat, goral. It is mainly confined to the precipitous pine-covered slopes with the huge pachyderms, nimble goats and huge herds of chital. Barking deer, sambar, hog deer, wild pigs, nilgai and sloth bears also inhabit these forests though you may not always catch a glimpse of these.
