200+ species in a week on Himalaya Birding Tour!
That’s right, you can actually look forward to spotting and photographing so many bird species on the Himalayan Foothills Bird Watching Tour.

These include a variety of pheasants across the Himalayas.

Colorful plumage, gleaming feathers, and flourishing tails are just some of the features common to a variety of pheasants, who are common yet elusive birds in the Himalayas.
In fact, bird watchers often have to wait to hear the calls of these birds and then wait for even more for these birds to step out of the bushes and shrubs.

The Koklass, Kalij, and Cheer are some of the pheasant species to look out for. Besides Pheasants, you also get 21 species of Woodpeckers, laughing thrushes, Partridges, Tits, Warblers, Raptors, Owls, and many other species on this one-week trip to Himalayan Foothills.

Starting from Delhi, a good itinerary covers Corbett National park, Pangot, and Sat Tal areas in the Himalayas.
Later, one can also do an extension to Agra, Chambal, and Rajasthan in the plains to complete the Classic North India Birding Tour.
Besides birds, one can also catch a mind-blowing variety of vegetation and wild animals along the many streams, lakes, and waterfalls.

Of course, for many city people, there are plenty of opportunities to interact with the local communities, enjoy local cuisines, and participate in their traditions and festivals. This is our commitment to promoting rural tourism and supporting small businesses.
One thing that invariably touches everyone is the simplicity of the local people.

So if you are planning to get on board a birding tour in the Himalayan Foothills or anywhere for that matter, do make sure that the tour operator has the required capacity of in-house birding and wildlife experts and drivers who know the terrain and stake-outs very well.

A good company will also ensure COVID-19 New Normal and Ecotourism practices.
It will also make environmental protection a part of its ethos to actively contribute to the efforts of conservation agencies like the World Wildlife Fund, and Wildlife Trust of India.
