The Bio-diversity Hotspot

Bhutan – Land of the thunder dragon. Bhutan is a beautiful undiscovered part of the world, wedged between India and China and unspoilt by the outside world.

Bhutan holds the best forests in the Himalayas. Its environmentally enlightened government and its controlled tourism policies certainly have helped it become the last foothold of many globally threatened species. Even though it has no endemics, its bird list at 650 is nearly half that of the whole Indian sub-continent.

This year we lay emphasis on the bird rich but not often birded region of Eastern Bhutan, with distinct possibilities of seeing Blood Pheasant, Satyr Tragopan, Fire-tailed Myzornis, Chestnut-breasted Partridge, Blyth`s Tragopan, Great Parrotbill, Beautiful Nuthatch and White-bellied Heron, making birding in Bhutan a mouth watering prospect.

You can combine this with Manas for a 13 Day extravaganza
