We booked Jheelmil Jheel tour, Rajaji National Park. It takes an hour drive from Rishikesh. However, the safari was worth money and time! Mr. Sanjay is a very friendly man. He took us all around the lake and we were very fortunate to see Spotted deer, Buffaloes, birds and last but not the least - Indian elephants. This lake is so beautiful, you must see it to believe. Air is clean and there is no pollution there. For the first time in India, we witnessed the deep blue skies! Please visit this park, it is amazing and personally I found it far better than Jim Corbett National Park (albeit there are no tigers here) due to less crowd and professionalism of staff here.

Best place to watch the elephant family groups . You can feel the silence of the sound . Easy to reach and also the best place to stay nearby. Second half safari is the best option.

Stayed in GMVN Chilla which is just 500 meters from Chilla gate.Safaris were arranged by Mohit. Mohit is a young naturalist and safaris arranged were excellent.We had the best guide who had so much of knowledge about the birds, the sounds, animals and nature. You can contact Mohit on 8477091231.

I was in Hardwar recently with two of my friends from france, they were interested in tribal village trip, we came to know that Mohan’s adventure tours base in Haridwar organise such trips, so on a cool afternoon we navigated away from Haridwar Road towards a dense forest cover. WeI noticed how the trees on the hilltops here were shaped differently—clear at the trunks and thinly trimmed at length. This was so stark that I assumed it was another species altogether. Our guide from Mohan’s driving us to the forest corrected me saying that it was the same variety. We reached a village inside the forest. The guide told us this is a Van Gujjar Village.
Van Gujjars are a tribe of nomads from Uttar Pradesh. Literally translating to ‘forest Gujjars’, these pastoral people have been moving for decades now from the mountains to the plains. They are all Muslims and their mainstay is the production of milk. They domesticate buffalos & cows and other livestock and deliver milk to a number of homes and dairy factories.
Clambering tall trees and trimming the leaves and the branches, which serve as fodder to their animals, comes naturally to this tribe.
In this village there are 75 families living. Their homes are made of mud and are spotlessly clean. Most thatched huts comprise a section of the house, i.e. there are different huts for prayers, sleeping, kitchen and common living spaces. We were told it takes them a couple of months to make an entire home, which is unbelievable time! We loved the hand painted walls and designs.

Most of the children in this village went to school and as usual, would rather invest their time playing outdoors. I found the women shy, creative and hospitable, and the men articulate and friendly. Their dependency and use of science was impressive, which reflected well in ways they built their homes with healthy drainage systems, among others.

Thanks to Mohan Adventure tours for such a beautiful experience.

They have charged me INR 3500 for ride of 4 persons in the gypsy including permit fees. However in the website it is mentioned only 2100 for 4 persons including permit fees. And also not given any slip for the charges.

During my jungle safari my gypsy get breakdown but driver was not able to understand what to do. we were totally demoralized. But anyway we reached the police chowki and taken helps from cops to come out from the jungle.
I am totally dissatisfied with the Gypsy driver Mr. Sameer and Booking Agent Mr. Charturbhuj.
Overall the experience was worst. They are only earning money without giving promised services.

I went to Rajaji National Park. It’s a haven for the nature and adventure lovers, who visit here to enjoy the real wildlife. It is located in transition zone between moderate western Himalaya and central Himalaya, which increases the species diversity and the viewing forecast. It is great place to go.

Yesterday afternoon we did a Jeep Safari with Mohan's Adventure tours Haridwar office. They stood up to their name that is in the Lonely Planet about them. We had the best guide that was provided by them. Who had so much of knowledge about the birds, the sounds, animals and nature. Not only did we see many elephants and animals, we also saw many birds which was so much new to us to see so many colourful beautiful birds. Have been to many safaris in the past to various National Parks in the country, but this was more professional and a great learning experience specially for my 2 young children.

This two hour experience was a welcome break from the bustling streets of Rishikesh. A very well protected and preserved area. Our driver through the safari spoke very little English so it was up to us to discover any animals lurking in the bushes. We saw mule deer, water buffalo, spotted dear, wild hogs and some incredibly colorful birds. Our hope was to see wild elephants but there were no real water sources close to the road. This will change with the seasons. Because they seem to know we want to see elephants they took us to a location at the end of the tour where a few elephants, including a baby were being washed and/or were chained. It was very disturbing and we would have preferred to not see any elephants at all. Perhaps this is an American reaction, but we found it quite distressing.

I would do the safari again but ask not to be taken to the captive elephants. I'd rather take my chances to see them in the wild. The drive is in an open jeep on mostly dirt roads. Take a camera with a telephoto lens for the best opportunity to capture the wild life. Or a good pair of binoculars to see them up close. They do rent binoculars at the store at the entrance.
