Home of the elusive Red Panda, and a real birder's paradise

Singalila National Park

Singalila National Park is located at an altitude ranging between 2000-3700 metres along the Singalila Ridge in the Himalayas. The Sandakphu top, one of the highest peaks in West Bengal, is an excellent place view the Kangchenjunga during stunning sunrises and sunsets.

Home of the elusive Red Panda, and a real birder's paradise

Most famous for its Red Panda population, Singalila National Park is also home to other fascinating mammals including barking deer, yellow-throated marten, Himalayan black bear, clouded leopard, black panther, leopard, Himalayan serow, pangolin and leopard cat.

The park has over 300 bird species including Blood and Khalij pheasants, Satyr Tragopan, Brown and Fulvous parrotbills, and Rufous-ventred Tit, along with many others.

Botanical delights

Apart from the rich animal and bird life, the park is a delight for keen botanists.

During March and April, over 20 different types of rhododendrons are bloom, covering the park in spectacular colours. Orchid lovers will be in heaven if visiting during October and November, as it is the best time to see over 600 orchid varieties, the largest concentration in any single geographical area in the world.
