Rajaji National Park is a national park that encompasses the Shivaliks, near the feet of the Himalayas. Three districts of Uttaranchal: Hardiwar, Dehradun and Pauri Garwhal make up this sprawling park land which been three different protected areas before being merged into one. Those three areas had been the Chilla, Motichur and Rajaji sanctuaries. Inhabiting the dense green jungles that form the park are an impressive array of creatures - 23 species of mammals - including tigers, leopards, elephants, deer, jungle cat, wild boar and sloth bear - and 315 species of birds are found in Rajaji. The most prominent avian species include pea fowl, woodpeckers, pheasants, kingfishers and barbets, supplemented by a number of migratory species during the winter months. Besides that, the rivers which flow through the park harbour fish such as trout and mahseer.

The forest in the park is deciduous, with Sal (Shorea Robusta) as the principal constituent. Due to abundant rainfall, favourable conditions are created for diverse forest types like (1) Moist Shiwalik Sal, (2) Moist Bhabar Dun Sal, (3) Western Gangetic Moist Mixed Deciduous, (4) Low Alluvial Sevannah Woodland, (5) Dry Shiwalik Sal, (6) Northern Dry Mixed Deciduous, (7) Khair Sissoo Forest, and (8) Lower Shiwalik Chir Pineforest. The main species of plants include the Sal (Shorea Robusta), Baki (Anogeissue latifolia), Sain (Terminalia Tomentosa), Haldu (Adina Cordifolia), Bachera (Terminalia Ballerica), Jhingan (Lannea Coromandelica), Kharpat (Garuga Pinnata), Phauri (Lagerstromia Parviflora), Bula (Kydia Calycina), Badal (Stereospermum chelonoides) etc. The under-wood is light and often absent, consisting of Rohini (Liollotus philippinensis), Amaltas (Cassia Fistula), Sandan (Ougeinia Oojeinensis), Pipal (Bauhienia Lazan), Mahal (Pyrus Pashla), Chamaror, (Ehretia Laevis), Aonia (Emblica Officinalis), Kachnar (Bauhienia Variegata), Ber (Ziziphus Mauritiana), Chilla (Casearia tomentosa), Bel (Aegle Marmelos), etc.
