Trip Introduction

Nepal is blessed with a vast array of exceptionally rich bird life with total of over 850 species recorded. A diverse topography and climate has resulted in a variety of habitats within the country, which are home to over 10% of the Worlds total bird population.
Nepal is a paradise for the birdwatcher. From the lowland jungle of the Terai and the Koshi Tappu barrage through dense rhododendron and Oak forest of the middle hills to the windswept plateaus of the high Himalaya there is always something to keep one twitching.
