Well, either you’ve heard a lot about it or you haven’t a word !! It’s as concealed as a treasure, as secret as a mantra of immortality and as beautiful as the garden of Paradise. Neora Valley National Park named after a beautiful river Neora, that flows through this deep and unexplored forest, is one of the remaining pristine heritage forests of India that is an abode to some of the most extinct wild life creatures in the world. The forest is spread diversely covering different altitudes with its obviously different types of vegetation that is hardly seen in other declared national parks of West Bengal. Starting from the lower range of Himalayas with an altitude of merely 400 mts, the forest spreads to an area covering more than 150 sq Kms reaching the highest altitude of 3200 mts above the sea level. As the forest covers different types of vegetation in its different altitude ( Rain forest, Bamboo Forest, Rhododendron Forest, Pine forest etc), it is the habitat for many wild creatures. Apart from the famous Royal Bengal Tiger, few animals that also identify it as a rarely rich bio-diversity of India are Red Panda, Snow-Leopard, Clouded Leopard, Chinese Pangolin, Yellow-Throated Martin and may more.
Unlike all other national parks that are usually crowded, Neora Valley National Park stands all isolated and unexplored because of its inaccessible terrains and denseness. Only few nature lovers who truly have explored its few accessible and permissible trails know about its true beauty.
