Our most comprehensive 20-night and 21 days birding tours are guided by our senior birding guide with long years of experience in guiding international birding clients for the past many years. This tour starts in the southeast of Bhutan entering from the Indian state of Assam working our way to a central, bit of south, and eventually finishing in the western part of Bhutan.
On this tour, we’ll cover a wide variety of habitats and all the main birding sites in the country at a very comfortable pace. You can experience the elevation from 150m up to 3890m
You will likely see all the key species of Bhutan including four species of Pheasants, Ward’s Trogon, Ibisbill, five species of Parrotbills, Yellow-rumped Honeyguide, and Beautiful Nuthatch, one of the most sought-after specialties of the Bhutan avifauna. We will also focus on the super skulker species like Tesias, Shortwings, and Wren Babbler. All in all, we will show you over 320 birds and 10 – 15 species of mammals such as three species of langurs, including the nearly endemic Golden Langur. Himalayan Giant Squirrel, Yellow-throated Marten, and Himalayan Goral.
