Kanchenjunga National Park
Kanchenjunga National Park, Sikkim - A yet
unexplored and virtually undisturbed wilderness still finds place in the
heavenly state of Sikkim in the form of the Kanchendzonga National Park.
Situated in the northern region of the state, on the highest elevation
range of 1829 to 8585 meters, the park is spread over a sprawling area
of 850 sq. km. The western boundary of the park is straddled by Mount
Kanchendzonga, the third highest peak in the world. The park also has to
its credit; one of the longest and most awesome glaciers namely the Zemu
Glacier. Three most beautiful peaks of Mount Kanchendezonga named Mt.
Pandim, Mt. Narshing and Mt. Siniolchu also lie in the park area.
Yet unexplored by man, the reserve is home to Snow Leopard, Himalayan
Black Bear, Tibetan Antelope, Wild Ass, Barking Deer, Musk Deer, Flying
Squirrel and Red Panda who find a blissful refuge amongst Magnolias,
Rhododendrons and Pine forests. More than 550 species of avifauna also
find shelter in the park. Some of the major birds found here include
Blood Pheasants, Satyr Tragopan, Osprey, Himalayan Griffon, Lammergeier,
Snow Pigeon, Impeyan Phesants, Sun birds & Eagles.
An exceptional topography and awesome peaks in the park contribute to
attract a large number of nature lovers. But entry to the park is
strictly restricted to mountaineers and to more serious expeditions.
