About Govind Wildlife Sanctuary
Govind Wildlife Sanctuary is situated in the Uttarkashi district. The sanctuary spread over an area of 953 sq. kms. This sanctuary was set up in 1955. It is believed to be one of the most beautiful park in the Garhwal region. It has snowclad peaks and glaciers including mountains like Swarg Rohini, Black Peak and Bandar punch. The popular destination for the trekkers is Har-ki-dun, which is famous for its emerald greenery.
The sanctuary forms the upper catchment of the Tons river, which is the most important tributory of River Yamuna in its upper reaches. Thus the area has a significant value as a major watershed for River Yamuna, which is a very important river for the Indo Gangetic plains. The area is home for a lot of endangered animals and its large area along with the contiguous forests of the neighbouring forest divisions helps in maintaining genetic diversity.
