Birdwatching is one of Bhutan's star attractions, and if you like to indulge your birdwatching habit while exploring new and beautiful parts of the world, then Bhutan really should be high on your list of places to visit. With a unique and rich Buddhist culture, spectacular Himalayan scenery, and one of the most diverse and rich ranges of birdlife on the planet, a specialist birdwatching tour in Bhutan is a really special experience. The best birding is in the east of the country, which requires a fairly long itinerary with plenty of driving, but we make regular stops and explore various Dzongs and monasteries along the way. The tour also features an easy 3-day walking section saying in simple but comfortable camps. Our tour starts in Paro, and we have a sightseeing tour of the Paro Dzong and National Museum. We are also introduced to our specialist bird-watching guide and will have an evening briefing to discuss particular target species over the days to come. We leave Paro and start with a pre-breakfast drive to the Che Lela Pass in search of the colourful but elusive Himalayan Monal and Satyr Tragopan, both birding highlights of Bhutan. We then drive on to the capital Thimphu where we have time for some more cultural sightseeing. Leaving Thimphu we cross the Dochu La Pass before descending into the Punakha Valley. On all our drives through Bhutan we'll make regular stops at places your guide knows are potentially good spots for particular bird species. The roads in Bhutan are generally very windy and scenic, and the slow pace means that you get a good chance to view your surroundings as we travel.
