More Details About this Trip:
The Western Ghats are a range of low mountains extending along peninsular India's west coast. Despite their tropical latitude the influence of altitude imposes a temperate climate on high ranges, home to a unique montane ecosystem.
The steamy tropical forests of the foothills and forest-grassland mosaic of the hills support 28 endemic and near-endemic birds, with a further 13 shared with Sri Lanka. Targets include Black & Orange Flycatcher, Kerala, Black- chinned and Wynaad Laughingthrushes, Malabar Trogon, White-bellied and Nilgiri Blue Robins, Malabar Pied Hornbill and Ceylon Frogmouth, plus endemic Lion-tailed Macaque and Nilgiri Tahr.
Those who wish to add even more birds to their list can end the trip with an extenstion to South Andaman island. Birds you can find include Andaman Treepie, Andaman Shama, Andaman White-headed Starling, Andaman Drongo, Andaman Crake and Andaman Woodpecker, along with with a number of other species.
Pricing: $2,990 US Dollars or £2,320 GBP for 11 Days and 10 Nights.
