Dhikala zone has one of the most picturesque and beautiful landscapes in the world, and the rich wildlife in the area adds to its charm. Dhikala is the biggest zone of the park open for visitors and provides wonderful chances of game viewing.

Dhikala zone gets its name from Dhikala grassland, which is one of the biggest grasslands of the park supporting a variety of wildlife. Other than grasslands, Dhikala zone has sal forests, mixed forests, and a variety of flora. The lifeline of the zone is Ramganga River, which supports the wildlife in the area and adds to the beauty of the forest.

Dhikala zone offers sightings of a variety of wildlife, including many rare or endangered species. One of the major attractions of the Dhikala zone is the royal Bengal tiger, but some of the animals commonly sighted there are elephants, spotted deer, sambar deer, hog deer, barking deer, common langur, rhesus macaque, wild boar, crocodiles, yellow-throated martins, gharials, mahseer, pythons, and snakes.

If one is lucky, one can also get to see nocturnal creatures like leopards, sloth bears, porcupines, and pangolins. Dhikala is also a paradise for birds, and one can get to see more than 500 species of birds. More than 300 species of birds are permanent residents of the area.

Dhikala zone is open for tourists from November 15 to June 15 every year, and during the remaining period, it remains closed due to monsoons as many streams cross the road leading to the zone, and it gets impossible to cross the streams due to high water levels and pressures.
