Our new Budget Bhutan birding tour takes us to one of the least spoilt Himalayan countries in search of some very special and beautiful birds!

On a typical day in this mountain wonderland, you will find yourself in breathtaking surroundings looking for legendary species in pristine and seemingly endless forests, with mighty Himalayan peaks towering in the distance - all in all, Bhutan is a destination like no other! Traversing dramatic mountain passes adorned with brightly coloured prayer flags and chortens (temples), some of the birds we will specifically target include the resplendent Himalayan Monal, Satyr Tragopan, Blood Pheasant, Rufous-necked Hornbill, Ward's Trogon, Beautiful Nuthatch, Himalayan Cutis - and a whole host of other spectacular species beside! In addition, we'll be among the very first foreign birders to explore the relatively new Bomdeling Wildlife Sanctuary, refuge for about 150 overwintering Black-necked Cranes and scores of other great Himalayan species, making this a true venture of discovery!

This slightly shorter option to our standard Bhutan tours is aimed at the more budget conscious birder with less time to spare in the field, but nevertheless still wishing for a fantastic overview of the region's special birds.

Please note: the dates for this tour have changed to the above, and are no longer from 14 - 27 February (due to flight schedule changes). Please also note that these prices are subject to foreign exchange fluctuations.
