Maenam

 


 

           
Other than being an extremely popular trekking route, Maenam Wildlife Sanctuary is equally famous as a bird watching spot. The trek typically starts from Ravangla, a popular tourist spot in South Sikkim. The highest point of this sanctuary is Maenam Top at a height of 3500 meters. There are almost 200 species of birds recorded till date, few of them being Sultan Tit, Green Magpie, Verditer Fly Catcher, Minivet, Fulvetta, Spiderhunter, Great Himalayan Barbet, etc. The sanctuary is also a home to the elusive Red Panda.

Not so far from Ravangla is a not so popular birding spot named Borong. Since not much of tourists visit that place, the forests around Borong are still pristine and undisturbed and thus is a perfect place for bird watching. There are several short treks around Borong and one gets a magnificent view of the Kanchenzungha range if weather is in favor. The hospitality of the simple villagers also make it worthwhile to visit the place.
