Tour Details

Kashmir and Ladakh lie at the northern extreme of the Indian Subcontinent and in terms of birding, as well as culture, offer a stark contrast to the rest of the country and each other Together they form a part of the Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir but are separated by the Great Himalayan Chain. Their position means that, particularly in winter and during migration, birds from the northern Palearctic turn up as vagrants, and there are a number of sightings of species not recorded elsewhere in India. In Spring and summer, however, we see peak avian activity with a number of local breeding specialties. Dachigam National Park is a must-visit location. The park lists numbers more than 150 birds many of which breed. Among the more notable are Kashmir nutcracker, Kashmir nuthatch​​​​, Kashmir flycatcher, Orange bullfinch, Western crowned warbler to name a few. Also, mammals like Hangul, Markhor, Gray Langur, Leopard, and Yellow-throated Martens are common. Ladakh lies in the rain shadow of the Himalayas, more than 300m above sea level. As you wander into Leh, the capital of Ladakh, expect to see some of the species like Ibisbill, Eurasian magpie, Red-fronted serin, Chukar Partridge . Mammals found in this region are Urial, Bharal (Blue sheep), Kiang (Tibetan wild ass), Ladak Pika, Marmot and many more.
