In Lepcha word derived from land of Cane, vanishing tribes  Lepcha’s old habitat. Not many have heard about this place. Because for some strange reason, Latpanchar hasn't had much tourism development. This is despite the fact that it's a beautiful mountain hamlet offering stunning views including that of Kanchenjunga, having wide range of bird & animal life as well as many different types of amazing plantations. 

Latpanchar actually forms the highest part of Mahananda Wildlife Sanctuary with an average altitude of about 4,200 ft. Since it's part of the sanctuary, there is good chance that you will come across some wildlife here like deer, barking deer, wild boars, and sometimes even leopards and elephants while exploring the jungles around.
Latpanchar is also famous for the medicinal plants it produces. Snow capped peaks of Kanchenjunga range can be seen from here. One can also see the Tista River,Kalimpong hill area, Algara, Lava, Tode, Tangda and the plains of Terai. The best part of visit to Latpanchar is that you can enjoy the beauty of the hill without having to jostle among tourist crowd.
