Ghoom Biodiversity Conservation Park, A Beauty with Mystery
Surrounded by blue mountains and green trees, Ghoom Bio Diversity Park is an amazing place to visit in Darjeeling. From the unique flora and fauna, you also get the chance to meet a Himalayan black Bear. It is actually a protected place within the Senchal Wildlife Sanctuary.
Walking down those hilly stoned narrow paths inside the park is an adventurous experience. Every minute you will be able to see some new flowers or plants saying you hi. Your every careful step will take you to a different ambiance. Sounds of different insects and birds will make you stop for a while and think. Forest guards will guide you on the way and if you ask them they will share some of their memories of human animal encounters.
Yes, it is Senchal Wildlife Sanctuary, so you may get the chance to meet a leopard too. You may also get his signs inside the park while visiting.
The Government of West Bengal have archived some amazing species of orchids. To see these wonderful flowers you have to visit this place in between October to March. You will also be able to see some other flowers and plants in their archive.
Ghoom Biodiversity Conservation Park takes you too close to the nature and you will feel it in your breath. A calm and peaceful place mixed with little mystery of nature.
Reptiles and amphibians: The endangered Himalayan newt frequents the region and congregates around the lakes of Jore Pokhri and Sukhiapokhri and nearby lakes to reproduce. Jore Pokhri and Sukhiapokhri are within 20 km of the park boundary and are protected wildlife sanctuaries.
Such a beauty
