The Neora National Park with its dense forests is located on the tri-junction of Bhutan, Sikkim and West-Bengal. It extends from 30 m of altitude up to 3200 m on an area of only 88 square km. Though this sounds rather small, it has to be considered that due to the topographical features the surface of the Park is much larger. Neora Valley offers a unique eco-system consisting of tropical, sub-tropical, sub-temperate, and temperate vegetative systems. Rhododendron, sal, oak, bamboo, ferns etc. form the forest and a variety of orchids is found within. The National Park is home to many endangered species like the red panda, the musk deer, and the clouded leopard. In the west, there is the clear view of the Kanchenjunga. In clear weather, the snowy peaks of Kabru, Kabrudome, Kanchenjunga and Pandim stand out against the streched sky. Enthusiasts can go for a walk on the jungle trail. The chance of coming across wildlife is quite high here. A trek of 5 KM will take to the beautiful Changey falls. Cardamom is a major crop and guests can observe the processing of the fresh fruit into the roasted spice. Some villagers still know the techniques of weaving maize and paddy straw into sitting mats. They are vegan and far removed from brouhaha of bustling tourist towns of Lava and Lolegaon. Electricity is yet to reach the village and therefore the hustly bustly advanced nature killer culture is being kept away from this beautiful nature. In Kolakham (6,100 feet), during the day, the men farm (the primary crop is cardamom) or breed live-stock while children play in courtyards full of marigold, dahlia, chrysanthemum and zinnia. The lush valley and the rolling hills stretch north as far as your eye can see. In the west, they end at the foot of the Kanchenjunga.
