मेनपट
आम हिलस्टेशनों पर पर्यटकों की भीड-भाड से दूर, साफ हवा, साल के घने जंगल और झरनों का मजा लेना हो तो एक बार मेनपट जरूर जाइए। मेनपट को छत्तीसगढ में छोटा शिमला के नाम से भी जाना जाता है। 1100 मीटर की ऊंचाई पर छत्तीसगढ के सरगुजा जिले में एक ऊंचे पठार पर बसा है मेनपट। मेनपट की सबसे बडी खासियत है यहां तिब्बती बस्ती का होना। 1960 के आसपास भारत आए तिब्बती लोगों में से काफी लोगों को यहां भी बसाया गया। तिब्बती संस्कृति की झलक पाने के लिए भी यह अनूठी जगह है।
