Towering above the town of Rabongla, Menam Hill (10, 800ft.): is located about 12 km which can be visited on foot. A traditional meditation site for the monks, it is also a vantage location for spectacular view of the mountains at sunrise. The trek takes 2.5 to 4 hrs and winds through a thick forest of oak, chestnut, magnolia and rhododendron trees. The forest is a riot of colours during spring (March/April). A natural habitat of the red panda, Himalayan black bear and many species of deer, this area is designated as a Wildlife Sanctuary.
The view from the Maenam summit is breathtaking. Ravangla lies sleeping far below and through the gaps in the mountains one can see plains of West Bengal. In the west an amazing view of the peaks of the Kanchendunga range mesmerize your eyes.
A walk of another half an hour on the same ridge takes one to Bhaledunga – a peculiar looking cliff that protrudes out and resembles the head of a cock. This distinctive looking feature can be seen from miles away and during the old days used to serve as a guiding landmark to travellers. From the tip of this cliff, there is a vertical fall of fifteen hundred metres and one does require a strong head to be able to look down from here. Far down the river Tista can be seen snaking its way like a giant python through the valley.
