Kanchendzonga National Park

Kanchendzonga Wild Life Park - is the largest wildlife reserve in Sikkim. Sited on the threshold of Mt. Kanchenjunga, the National Park got its name from this third highest peak of the world. The reserve also includes the vast Zemu Glacier. This park covers an area of 850 square km.

It is said that a large area of the park remains yet unexplored by man. The park boasts of over 4,000 species of plants and about 500 species of birds – almost 30% of the birds found in the entire sub continent. The reserve is home to the snow leopard, Himalayan black bear, the Red panda etc. The term Kanchenjunga means 'the Abode of Gods consisting of Five Treasure Houses'.

The park has remained ecologically untouched and it provides a natural protection to the plants and animals. As many places in this park have never been touched by man, there are chances that new species can also be discovered here.
