Kashmir & Ladakh Tour

Code: # 520
15 Days

Description

Kashmir and Rajasthan are two regions in India with rich histories and fascinating people and cultures. They are also great birding destinations for those wanting to increase their life list. This tour takes you to some of the best wildlife sites of Rajasthan and Kashmir, each with something
unique to offer. Our tour starts in Delhi, the capital of India. From here we move to the royal city of Jaipur, where we will proceed for jeep safaris in the nearby Jhalana Safari Park to look for Leopards and birds. From Jaipur and Jhalana, we move to the city of Ajmer and the Sonkhaliya grasslands, one of the best places to spot an endangered beauty: Lesser Florican. The grasslands are also home to other dry-habitat species such as Rock Bush and Rain Quails, and Painted Francolin, to name a few. After exploring Rajasthan, we move via Delhi to the Himalayan state of Jammu and Kashmir, namely the areas around Srinagar, Dachigam, Gulmarg, and Sonmarg. Enjoy a comfortable and relaxing stay in a traditional Kashmiri houseboat while you explore the area for your targets. These areas are home to a wide variety of bird species, such as Yellow-billed Blue Magpie, Blue Whistling Thrush, White-capped Redstart, and many more. From Kashmir, we move even higher to the region of Ladakh, also in Jammu and Kashmir.
Ladakh lies in the rain shadow of Himalayas on the Tibetan Plateau, more than 300m above sea level. As you wander into Leh, the capital of Ladakh, expect to see some of the unique species here like Eurasian Magpie. Along the stream in winter look for Solitary Snipe and White-throated Dipper.
Other birds found in this region are Red-billed Chough, Robin and Brown Accentors, and Red-fronted Serin.

    Thanks for following up on our tour to India. Although initially disappointed that we could not go to Kashmir I am very happy with the way you have handled the situation and rapidly arranged an alternative tour for us. Although we could not see all the birds we had hoped for in the areas due to the summer period we had a rather successful trip with some very good species. Furthermore, we greatly appreciated the flexibility of you and the guides to accommodate our wishes something that worked out very well.
