“I think the most important quality in a birdwatcher is a willingness to stand quietly and see what comes. Our everyday lives obscure a truth about existence - that at the heart of everything there lies a stillness and a light.”
- Lynn Thomson
Birding Tours in India
When it comes to Birding, India has a lot of avifauna life and such amazing biodiversity. From the deserts to Rann of Kutch to the rainforests of Arunachal and from the High Altitude deserts of Ladakh to The Tropical rainforests of the Deccan Plateau. India is a must do for any serious birder.
At above 14000ft we offer some amazing birding holidays to both the amateur and professional birders. Our unique approach of being able to set up temporary but awesomely luxurious camps in the wilderness allows us to make you feel right at home while you can focus on the birding aspect of things.
Some of our favourite areas we also organise Birding tours in India are :
1 - Kangra valley, Dharamshala, Bir, the Pong Wet Land Sanctuary, Chamba, Kugti WLS.
