The reason to choose this area as tiger reserve is the good population of the creature here. There was a time when entire Kumaon region lived with fear of man eating tigers. It was then that hunters were brought to kill them. But killing of tigers became rampant and many innocent wild creatures paid price for it. The local administration took a serious note of it. And in order to prevent poaching and smuggling, the national park was set up. Later the area was also increased in order to benefit the animals and local inhabitants.
