The group will then immediately leave for Manebhanjan, a charming town set on the border of India and Nepal and closest settlement outside the national park. This allows for qucik access and entry the next day.
DAY 2 : MANEBHANJAN TO SINGALILA
We will leave very early in the morning from Manebhanjan and head to the park entry point. Here vehicles will changed to vintage Land Rovers and we will travel to the lodge at Tumling. After quick breakfast we will join our trackers (who will be tracking since early morning) in search of Red Pandas.
After a full day on the field, we will return to the lodge at Tumling and spend the evening at leisure. Tumling will be our base for the next 4 nights.
DAY 3-5 : BIRDING AND WILDLIFE TRACKING AT SINGALILA
While our trackers head out in search of the Red Panda, we shall identify suitable trails for searching for Red Panda as well along with looking for other species of birds and mammals immediately post breakfast.
Singalila is home to several species of birds and you must engage yourselves with bird watching, while the trackers are out looking for Red Panda. As soon as the trackers notify the leader of their find, you will be taken for the sighting.
The Landrovers will be there in support to drive you to various spots. You can opt to walk to the sighting spot or choose to go by land rover, if the sighting is close to a motor-able road.

Today we will undertake a short birding tour before heading back to Siliguri. The expedition oficially ends here. You can reminisce about the trip while driving through the beautiful roads of North Bengal. The drive to Siliguri will take upto 5 hours.
We recommend the stay at Siliguri in order to fascilitate a quick transfer to the airport the next day for your flight back home.
