A little known fact about the Yamuna is that it is the frontier of the Indian elephant. West of the Yamuna, there are no elephants to be found over 900 [kilometre|km]] of the western Himalayas and their foothills. The forests of the lower Yamuna offer ideal corridors for elephant movement and the principal forests to be found here are of Sal, Khair Sissoo trees and the Shivalik chir- pineforests.
