Since, this national park is located in the Kumaon Division of the state of Uttarakhand, a heavy influence of the kumaoni culture can be seen over the local lives. Here, Kumaoni language is widely spoken and understood. However, Hindi is the main official language. Everybody can easily converse in both these languages.
As a part of the conservation projects undertaken by the national park officials, the locals are encouraged to participate. As a result, many locals are successfully employed by the national park and they collectively promote the eco-tourism. In this way, they have a deep bonding with this wildlife reserve.
