This tour is meant for birders who are in good physical health and can walk in high altitude area. The treks and walks are moderate in nature. The bird species are special trans-Himalayan species while a lot of them are Palearctic. The scenery is spectacular. The area around the Indus river is green and the rest is a cold desert. Ladakh is also known for its Monasteries. The monasteries of Ladakh are what give the region its unique flavor and beauty. Typically, most gompas are built so that they perch precariously on lone rocks or craggy mountain-faces. In this tour we encourage traditional village based homestays, where you can see the traditional way of life and sample ladakhi food. Please ask for a detailed itinerary for viewing different bird species in LEH, LADAKH.
