River Rammam and River Sirikhola flow through the park. The areas vegetation may be broadly classified as temperate and alpine vegetation stretching right up to the snows. The avifauna is a unique mix of Himalayan and Indo-Burmese forms. The mountainous terrain, criss-crossed by innumerable streams supports a subtropical humid climate leading to tree growth beyond the snowline unlike in the Western Himalayas. This has created an unique ecosystem populated by plants, birds and mammals which are hard to find anywhere else in India.</p> <p>K A N C H E N J O N G A</p> <p>R A N G E</p> <p>Kanchen jongaKumbhakarna 7710M</p> <p>8585</p> <p>E V E R E S T</p> <p>R AN G E</p> <p>Everest29,020 Lhotse 27,090 Makalu 27,790 Chomolongzo 26,040</p> <p>SINGALILA NATIONAL PARKLocation: 26 Km from Darjeeling, India Highest Point: 3636 Meters Type Of Trek: Soft Trek Biomes: Himalayan Alpine Conifer Forest Flora: Rhododendron Forest, Orchids, Silver Fir , Himalayan Cobra Lilies Fauna: Red Panda( Snow Leopard, Salamander,</p> <p>SINGALILA NATIONAL PARKHIGHLIGHTS Panoramic View of Everest, Three Sisters, Kanchenjunga and Pandim Range Scenic view of 4 out of top 5 highest mountains in the world.
