Northeast: Amur Falcon Mega Migration & More

Visit one of India’s least-explored corners at its easternmost extension near the Myanmar border.

Our tour covers the key birding sites in Nagaland at Khonoma, Chizami, and Pangti as well as the foothills of the Patkai range and Kaziranga National Park in neighbouring Assam.

More Details About this Trip:

Witness the truly incredible concentrations of Amur Falcons as they gather over the Doyang Reservoir in their thousands during their autumn migration; surely one of the most awe-inspiring sights on earth.

We have realistic chances of finding several endemics and near-endemics in the Khonoma and Chizami area, with a rich supporting cast of more widespread East Himalayan species including laughingthrushes, babblers, parrotbills and sunbirds.

There are good chances to see Western Hoolock Gibbon, India's only ape, in the lowland forests of Assam, with a selection of iconic large mammals at Kaziranga, one of India's finest reserves, that includes Indian Rhinoceros, Asian Elephant, and Tiger.

Experience Nagaland’s rich history and tribal heritage, with lodging in simple rooms in friendly village homestays, supporting local communities
