Birding Tour India: Bhutan Extension - Assam April 2019



This extension to our Birding Tour Bhutan: The Himalayas of Bhutan in November will lead to the Indian state of Assam, home to two magnificent national parks for us to visit. In fact, the floodplains of the Brahmaputra River here are considered one of the most biologically diverse areas in all of India.

After our arrival in Guwahati, the largest city in Assam and situated on the bank of the Brahmaputra River, we will head through the Assamese plains, looking for some difficult yet highly-prized species in and around the wondrous Kaziranga National Park, such as Bengal Florican, Greater Adjutant, Blue-naped Pitta, Indian Grassbird, and Swamp Francolin. After three full days here we will continue our travels through the beautiful, undisturbed wilderness of the Himalayan foothills at Nameri National Park, where we will have two full days exploring. This area protects numerous species, and here we will look for special birds such as White-winged Duck, Ibisbill, and Greater Adjutant. Once we have finished here we will head back to Guwahati, where this short, but exhilarating trip will conclude.

This extension will also offer fantastic opportunities of some of India’s major mammals and reptiles such as Indian Rhinoceros (the only place in the world where this species can be seen reliably), Asian Elephant, Barasingha (Swamp Deer), Gaur, Wild Water Buffalo, Indian Leopard (subspecies), Western Hoolock Gibbon, Ganges River Dolphin, and Gharial, along with plenty of more common and widespread species. With luck we may even find Bengal Tiger or Clouded Leopard, either one sure to be yet another highlight.

This Birding Tour India post-trip extension to our Birding Tour Bhutan: Spring in the Easterrn Himalayas 2019 tour can also be booked as a stand-alone tour.

What our clients say

Just wanted to tell you what a fantastic time I had on my custom Sri Lanka birding tour. Everything went flawlessly thanks to Andy’s preparation, and his knowledge and passion for the birds was infectious and made it great fun. Our local guide, Lester, was as passionate, and was expert in locating the birds and sharing his knowledge of the country. The food and lodging were great, and we became good friends as well as birding buddies, and I would recommend Sri Lanka as a, safe, friendly place to bird.  Andy’s trip report is on the website. Birding Ecotours ran a wonderful tour, and I will use their services again for our next trip. Bill Fiero
