The Landscape and geography

Spread over an area as vast as approx. 520 sq. Kms, the park’s elevation ranges between 400 to 1200 meters.
Geographically, the Park is actually a valley with ridges dotting its large tract. Many rivers and rivulets enhance the charm. The most prominent is the Ramganga.
Sal and other mixed deciduous forests are found throughout the Park while the grasslands known as the Chaurs, which cover about 1/10th of the park’s total area, give the tourist a better and uninterrupted view of the wildlife.
