A marshy grassland just near the Rajaji National Park (extension area of Rajaji Tiger Reserve), near Haridwar. This is a unique 3783.5 hectare (9349.23 acre) site. It is corridor for most of animals transferring from National Park. Jhimil is literally the last piece of primordial Terai marshland to survive untouched in Uttarakhand. A panoramic view from the well-situated watchtower can take one back a millennium and more; little would have changed. At this low-lying site (altitude: 240 m. or 800 ft.) lives Uttarakhand’s only surviving herd of Swamp Deer of Barasingha (Cervus Duvaucelii).
