Uttar Pradesh >>Chila

THE WILD IN THE HILLS: Chila Wildlife Sanctuary, a haven for animal watchers is just 8 kms. From Haridwar and 21 kms. From Rishikesh. Located on the banks of the Ganga River, in the heart of Shivalik hills, Chila is a part of the famous Rajaji National Park. The town itself is neither attractive nor interesting, but makes a good base for explorations of the park.
The Wild Population: The fauna species include elephants, spotted deer, stag deer, blue bull, wild boar, fox, porcupine, jungle fowls and peacock. Besides these, migratory birds are also seen on the river Ganga. Wild animal/bird watching and photography on elephant back is a prime attraction. Pleasure walks in the jungle provide the much-needed respite from the maddening noise of the city life.
