Welcome To StayApart, 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. 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.
