Nepal Birding: Trip Itinerary
Our 12-day tour takes us through the three best birding localities in Nepal. We begin in the mid-altitude Himalaya of the Kathmandu Valley, exploring the forested slopes of Phulchowki Danda for montane specialties. From here we travel east into the terai, the lowland grasslands and forests which flank the Himalaya, to Koshi Tappu Wildlife Reserve, where internationally important wetlands host Nepal’s largest congregation of waterbirds. Staying in the terai, we move west to Chitwan National Park which, spanning the mountains from the terai and outermost foothills to the mid-Himalaya, supports the richest assemblage of birds anywhere in the country, including an important selection of grassland specialties in the most extensive protected area of lowland grassland in Nepal.
