Khanjenjunga Mountain Range

Mount Kanchenjunga

 

 

Any write-up on Sikkim would be incomplete if we do not cover Mount Kanchenjunga, the all pervasive mountain range which oversees Sikkim.

 

Kangchenjunga, also spelt Khangchendzonga, is the third highest mountain in the world. It rises with an elevation of 8,586 m in a section of the Himalayas called Kangchenjunga Himal.   Until 1852, Kangchenjunga was assumed to be the highest mountain in the world.

Kangchenjunga was first climbed on 25 May 1955 by Joe Brown and George Band, who were part of a British expedition. They stopped short of the summit in accordance with the promise given to the Chogyal(erstwhile rulers of Sikkim) that the top of the mountain would remain intact. Every climber or climbing group that has reached the summit has followed this tradition of stopping short by 10 feet. 

 

Kanchenjunga translated means “The Five Treasures of Snows”, as it contains five peaks, four of them over 8,450 metres.

 

Sikkimese worship Mt Kanchenjunga as their guardian deity. It is believed that the ‘mountain god’ played an active role in introducing Buddhism into this former kingdom.

Bird Sanctuary

 

For serious birdwatchers, Sikkim has a bird sanctuary not very far from Gangtok, the capital city.  

 

Kitam Bird Sanctuary is a protected sanctuary located near Namchi, Sikkim. From Gangtok, it is 71 km away.

The bird sanctuary lies between 1200 feet and 3200 feet above sea level, and  occupies an area of more than 6 square kilometers within thick vegetation of shrubs and sal, pine forests. This sanctuary has two rivers namely, River Rangit and Manpur River. Sumbuk and Kitam are the two villages located in the sanctuary. Tumbol Schor, the highest point of Kitam Bird Sanctuary, offers great panoramic views of the surrounding mountains.

Kitam Bird Sanctuary is heaven for bird lovers and attracts domestic and international tourists around the year for birding. Kitam is the only low altitude bird sanctuary and remain open throughout the year. Home to over 200 species of birds, Kitam is also known for several beautiful butterflies.

There are many bird watching trails and a few watch towers and viewpoints in this sanctuary that are ideal for bird watching. 

The best time to visit this place is during the months of October to May, as in winters several colourful migratory birds come to visit here.

To enjoy birding in the early morning hours, one must opt to stay at a homestay in Kitam.  Look for Barbet Home Stay Kitam on google.   We had done a day trip from Gangtok. Here is a documentation of our trip

Bird Watching

Birds of Sikkim

Sikkim birds

Sikkim is a haven for bird watchers.  Trekking the hills and valleys is certainly the best way to observe and photograph them.  However, if you are a bird lover you can spot birds wherever you are visiting-near a monastery, at waterfalls, on the roadsides, near the place you are staying.  Absence of chemicals and fertilizers make the entire state bird friendly.

As Northern part of Sikkim was mostly inaccessible in February, our recordings of bird sightings are linmited to the South and West part mostly.
