Menam

Menam Hill

Menam Hill

Menam Hill towers above Tendong Hill on the other side overlooking the Ravangia bazaar settlement. Situated at an altitude of 10,300 ft. the scenic view from this height is, perhaps, unmatched in this part of the world. Mt. Khangchendzonga and its surrounding ranges loom above to dwarf the richly forested and rugged hills. On a clear sunny day, it is possible to see the plains of Bengal spanning across Kalimpong and Darjeeling hills in the South, right across to the Indo-China border towards the North. A short distance away is the legendary Bhaley Dunga, a kind of rocky spur, which juts out from the ridge top and remains suspended in the air above Yangang village. The trek to Menam from Ravangla takes about 4 hours and from Menam hilltop one has the option to take the gentle trek to Borong village or follow the more treacherous trails taken by the famous British Botanist, Sir Josheph Hooker, down to Yangang village.
