Located at an elevation of 4,500 ft, Latpanchar serves as the highest point of the Mahananda Wildlife Sanctuary. This unique destination has the footprints of the British Raj in India and is distinguished by its tiny cottages and quaint chocolate-hued cinchona plantations. Pristine, tranquil and located far from the maddening crowds, Latpanchar is a scenic village that boasts of an old world charm –and in many more ways than one.
The lodging options in this beautiful region of the Himalayas are not many, with the forest bungalow-Latkothi (erstwhile residence of a British Administrator) taking the cake. Tucked away in the midst of a dense forest, Latpanchar is home to several exotic species of flora and fauna and astounds nature and wild life enthusiasts alike. You may also choose to enjoy the hospitality of one of the many homestays in the region –just reach there and take your pick!
