Birding Tour

Bhutan is rated as one of the “top ten global hot spots” in the world. Forests covering 72.5% of the country offer a large opportunity to spot 770 species of birds in the temperate and alpine vegetation of valleys and mountain passes. Winter is a good time for a large flock of black-necked cranes in Phobjikha Valley. Phobjikha Valley is one of the most important wildlife preserves in the country, and it serves as the nesting grounds for the endangered black-necked crane in winter. The best season for birding in Bhutan is late spring and autumn.
