Bhutan Bird Watching Tour

10 Days 9 Night

Trip Introduction

Bhutan is a bird watcher’s paradise as a large area of natural habitat is protected. Due to the wide range of specific altitudinal and climatic conditions (from sub-tropical to alpine), the Kingdom possesses an immense variety of birds within its small territory. Over 600 species have been recorded to date, this extensive list growing increasingly longer as more systematic birding is undertaken. The most high profile species include the Black-necked crane, Blyth’s/Satyr tragopan, Ward’s Trogon, Monal pheasant, Wedge-billed, Long-billed, Bar Winged wren-Babblers, yellow-throated fulvetta, and Rufus-necked hornbill. For a wider variety of birds and better sightings, one should travel to the east of the country. Senior and Limithang are known to be some of the finest areas.

Trip Itinerary

Day 1: Arrive in Bhutan.

Transfer to airport and fly to Paro then drive to Thimpu. You will see the Red-billed Choughs, Black-tailed Crake, Ibisbill, and Brown Dipper while driving. Arrive Thimpu. Dinner and overnight at a hotel.

Day 2: Drive to Punakha via Dochu La.

On the way, you will see a wealth of birds, including some species-rich feeding flocks. Quarrelsome Nutcrackers are common, and past highlights have included a skulking Hill Partridge, a Satyr Tragopan, a Golden Bush Robin, an immaculate Cutia, a Brown Parrotbill, and even the gorgeous Fire-tailed Myzornis. Overnight stay near Punakha.

Day 3: Explore the braided channels of the Mo Chhu River beside Punakha Dzong and its bird-rich subtropical forests. Here you will see White-bellied Heron, one of Bhutan’s rarest birds, brightly colored minivets and noisy Striated Laughingthrushes, and Ibisbills. In the afternoon we hope to be able to go inside Punakha Dzong, a fabulous fortified monastery that’s still home to many hundred monks. Overnight stay in Punakha.

Day 4: Drive to Wangdi Dzong where nearby can be seen Pallas’s Gull and Pallas’s Fishing Eagle. Enter further the forest near the end of our journey, where we’ll stop to look for species such as Blood Pheasant, Satyr Tragopan, and the majestic Himalayan Monal. Spotted Laughingthrush, Yellowish-bellied Bush-Warbler, Rusty-flanked Treecreeper, White-browed Bush Robin, and White-winged Grosbeak also occur here. Overnight stay in Gangtey.

Day 5: Drive through the Pele La pass and into Central Bhutan. A stand of real bamboo extends for about three miles below the pass, and we’ll search here for specialties such as Great and Brown Parrotbills and Golden-breasted Fulvetta, surely one of the world’s most attractive passerines. Overnight stay in Trongsa.

Day 6: Drive through the bamboo-thronged Yotong La into the first of the four Bumthang valleys. Nutcrackers can be common, though we’ll have to spend a little more time searching for the region’s real specialties: Slender-billed Scimitar Babbler, White-browed, and Rufous-breasted Bush Robins, Dark-rumped Rosefinch, and Fulvous, Brown, and Great Parrotbills. Overnight stay in Jakar.
