Through our experience, we have learned most of the birders visiting Bhutan are interested in seeing our colorful Pheasants, especially Satyr Tragopan, one of the top 10 most beautiful birds of the Indian Subcontinent. It is classified as Near Threatened by the international union for the conservation of nature (IUCN) and Birdlife international.
After much research in finding out the best season for seeing this species, we have designed this 14 nights and 15 days tour. Apart from seeing Satyr Tragopan, you will likely see some of the most sought-after species like Ward’ Trogon, Himalayan Monal, Blood Pheasant, Kalij Pheasant, Beautiful Nuthatch, and two species of Hornbills. All in all, we will show you over 250 birds, and 10 – 15 species of mammals in 16 days. Other highlights include the visit to some of the beautiful ancient fortress and temples in 15 days!
This tour is led by Tshering Dorji our young and promising guide, as a young and enthusiastic birder; Tshering is now familiar with the calls, behavior, distribution, and habitats of Bhutan birds.
Tshering has also represented the guide association of Bhutan (GAB) to make the presentation on the birds of Bhutan during the first-ever meeting of the Citizen Birders of Bhutan.
