Birding & Tour in Bhutan

  • Birding & Tour in Bhutan

Overview

Bhutan is a small independent kingdom in the Himalayas lying between Tibet and India with a recorded avifauna of over 616 species. Only recently has it begun to open up to visitors. Over 72% of the land is still forested and 26% of the land is protected as National Parks. It is an ideal place to see a wide variety of birds that are impossible or difficult to see anywhere else. Unlike the other Himalayan countries which suffer from much deforestation and environmental degradation, Bhutan 's richly diverse and beautiful forests are some of the best remaining forest habitats in the Himalayas. So much so that the country is claimed to be the major part of the high bio-diversity conservation hotspot known as Eastern Himalayan hotspots.

Apart from the birding, this tour will give you a feast of imposing architecture, breathtaking views, friendly people and natural spring beauty of this stunning mountain kingdom. The trip will enable you to see most of the 616 species recorded in Bhutan so far as the tour takes you right through the leading endemic bird areas of Bhutan. By the end of the trip you will come to understand how the Bhutanese people have harmonized with culture and the natural environment over the centuries. This itinerary of birding from west to east Bhutan can be done from spring, early summer and autumn.
