The panoramic view of the Himalayan Range is mesmerizing causing the visitors to gaze in wonder at the snow covered peaks almost continuously. The Singalila spur gives the ridge as well as the National Park its name. The ecosystem of this region is unique with a rare biodiversity unlike anywhere else in the world. Apart from the beautiful flora, there are over 120 birds of different species seen here.
The nature lovers and bird watchers have a field day trying to spot as many species as possible here. The Himalayan Black Bear and the Red Panda are indigenous to this region. The Government is strict about protecting the animals here with activities such as poaching, grazing of cows, and hunting being prohibited by law. The Park also serves as a part of a trekking trail that passes along the ridge to as far as Sandakphu & Phalut. Most tourists, however, choose the Jeep Safari to explore the Park and spot animals.
Rs 100 for Indians and Rs 200 for foreign nationals for entering the Singalila National Park. Trekking and Safari charges are extra and vary according to the services provided.
Best Time to Visit
Spring and summer months lasting from March to May are deemed to be the best season for visiting Singalila. The monsoon sees a lot of rainfall with the national Park being closed for up to three months from June to September. The winters are too harsh with the bears hibernating thus making it impossible to view the natural abundance of flora and fauna.
