The Govind wild life sanctuary, situated in the Uttarkashi district of Uttranchal, was established on 1st March, 1955. It spreads over an area of 957.969 sq Kms. and the altitude varies from 1300 mts. to 6323 mts. The entire area of the sanctuary is subjected to light to heavy snow fall. The sanctuary forms the above catchment of the Tons river, which is the most important tributary of river Yamuna in its upper reaches. Thus the area has a significant value as a major watershed for river Yamuna, which is a very important river for the Indo Gangatic plains. The area is home for a lot of endangered animals and its large area along with continuous forests of the neighboring forest division helps in maintaining genetic diversity.

The area is very rich in medicinal plants, many of which form the basis for certain life saving drugs. The scenic beauty of the area is unmatched. The snow leopard inhabits the inner Himalayas above the altitude of 3500 mts. It has snowclad peaks and glaciers including mountains like Swarg Rohini, Black Peak and Bandarpunch. The popular destination for the trekkers is Har-ki-dun, which is famous for its emerald greenery.

The wildlife population counts as snow leopard, brown and Himalayan black bears, thar, bharal, musk deer, serow, monal, trogopan chir, koklas and khaleej pheasants and chukor.
