The area consists of rivers (Ramaganga river), streams, deciduous and semi deciduous forests, plains and plateaus. It had become a natural habitat for various animal and bird species earlier. At present, most of them have been extinguished due to illegal activities taking place in the area. Though, the Government has banned activities like poaching and timber smuggling, such activities do take place. The park preserves more than 488 species of flora and more than 585 species of birds. Though it is known for Bengal tigers it would be very difficult to spot any of them. The park also preserves reptiles, eagles, elephants, deer and aquatic animals.

The administrative authorities at the park conduct workshops on how to behave in the park, on how to preserve the eco-balance and have brought out a DVD for that purpose.
