Situated in the Kalimpong sub-division under Darjeeling district is one of the richest biological
zones in the entire Northeast. The land of elegant Red Panda in the pristine undisturbed natural
habitat with rugged inaccessible hilly terrain. The rich flora and fauna makes the park an
important wilderness zone.
The forest in Neora Valley has such a luxurious growth that even sunlight finds it difficult to touch
the ground. Much of the park is still inaccessible making it an adventurous place for the nature
lovers/trekkers who can take the challenge to explore the still-unknown terrain in the Kalimpong
hills. Virgin natural forests, dense bamboo groves, a colorful canopy of Rhododendron trees, lush
green valley, meandering rivers and streams with snow-capped mountains in the backdrop form
a picturesque landscape.
Neora Valley National Park is also the home of Red Panda. A cute little animal with a reddish
brown body and a bushy ringed tail is one of the most endangered species in the world. The
recent discovery of Royal Bengal Tiger in Neora Valley has prompted the administration to
include the park in the list of sensitive wildlife zones in the country. According to the 2002 tiger
census the park holds 19 majestic big cats. Among the other important mammals Indian Gaur,
Himalayan Black Bear, Clouded Leopard Common Leopard, Lesser Cats, Himalayan Thar, Serrow,
Gural, Deer, and Squirrels are worth mentioning.
Neora Valley is extraordinarily rich in avifauna or the feathered animals. Due to its altitudinal
variation ranging from 600ft to 10600 ft, various species of birds make the park a paradise for
the bird watchers. Pheasants, Cuckoos, Minivets, Flycatchers, Maynas, Orioles, Owls, Parakeets,
Partridges, Sunbirds, Swallows, Swifts and Woodpeckers would captivate one with their chirpy
calls and enchanting colorful plumage display.
Perched at an altitude of 4500 feet, up in the hills of Kurseong, is this picturesque, unseen and
hidden hamlet, Latpanchar. Latpanchar is the highest point in Mahananda WLS and is endowed
with abundance of flora & fauna making it a paradise for nature lovers. The beauty of
