Northern India

Tour Overview
India. The world in one country. It is home to over 1.3 billion people but also hosts 9% of all mammalian, 13% of all avian, 8% of all reptilian, 6% of all amphibian and 6% of all flowering plant species of the world; no other country can boast the diversity that India can.

India conjures up images of colour, chaos and clogged cities. But it has so much more; a rich history, sacred architecture, religious diversity, culture, Hindu mythology, high mountains, dense jungles, spicy cuisine, Bollywood, tigers and excitement everywhere!

This 14 day Nature Travel Birding tour will visit most of the birding hotspots in the states of Uttarakhand, Uttar Pradesh and Rajasthan in northern India. This region boasts some incredibly diverse habitats, and as a result, some truly iconic and numerous bird species, along with spectacular scenery and superb photographic opportunities.

We will enjoy top birds, stunning other fauna and flora, breathtaking mountain scenery, fantastic local cuisine and very friendly people. Incredible India will blaze in your memory long after you’ve left its shores. Let’s go birding!
