North India is an incredible area for birds.  The close
proximity of lowland regions to higher altitudes as the foothills
of the western Himalaya rise sharply out of the plains
ensures that distinct communities of species can be found
almost side by side.  The endurance of these species is
further aided here by the protection of many of the most
ecologically fundamental areas in a comprehensive network
of sanctuaries.

Our 16-day tour itinerary passes through a cross-section of
environments in the states of Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh and
Uttarakhand.  From the rugged terrain of western India's
semi-desert travel through the irrigated plains of India's
agricultural heartland, into the foothills of the Kumaon district
of the western Himalaya, home to some of India's finest Chir
Pine and Sal forest, and finally into the terai - the temperate
broadleaved forest interspersed with marshy grassland that
flanks the Himalayan range to the south.   
A host of resident birds and regional specialities are
accompanied throughout by Palaearctic and altitudinal
migrants, with excellent opportunities for sightings of large
mammals, in particular Tiger, in some of India's most famed
reserves.
