Hello friends! This is Harish Bali from Visa2Explore. I’m at Rajaji National Park now. This is around half an hour away from Haridwar. I’m hoping I’ll be able to see some wildlife around here. This is my first time to this park. Let’s go and explore some real good wildlife. Look at those pugmarks in the middle of the tracks! Those are the footprints of a tiger. It’s been 2 years that Rajaji National Park has been converted to a tiger reserve. Brother, around how many tigers are here? There are 16 tigers here now. Last year there were only 5! The guide told us how last year a leopard hunted a deer and carried up this tree. The antlers are still stuck here. How do you save yourself if chased by an elephant? Sir…we have this safety gun with us. We put Gandhak potas in it If ever being chased by an elephant… We bang this on a stone which creates a loud sound. I’m on a machan (raised platform for hunting/watchtower). The view is beautiful from here. We have to cover another 28kms. So… The forest guard just told me that if we move forward.. there’s a chance we might spot wild animals! There was a herd of elephants here yesterday! Chances are we might spot that herd today as well. It’s been almost an hour. The jungle is beautiful. But, we are yet to spot animals. In all this while, we’ve only seen a peacock. These deer antlers have been lying here for how long? Sir, it’s been around 2 months. It’s quite a display! Finally, we have spotted an elephant! A baby elephant actually. But, at least towards the last 1km, I’ve finally found an elephant! Huge disappointment on animal visibility at Rajaji. But, don’t be disappointed. Because, you can now see Adventure Sports at Rishikesh! If you haven’t yet subscribed Visa2Explore, Then click the red button below and subscribe now!

I’ll suggest… instead of a morning visit, come in the evening. At least then you might spot a few elephants! Thanks for your time.
