BIRD WATCHING IN NEPAL

Paradise World For The Bird Watcher.
Koshi Tappu Wildlife Camp offers many options and activities to give full opportunities to view the wildlife at its best. We offer you regular wildlife excursions with the trained local naturalists.

Morning / Evening Jungle Walk
The jungle along the belts of the Koshi River, part of the Koshi Tappu Wildlife Reserve is known for its richness in birds and other animal species. The river lagoons and wetlands provide excellent opportunity to sight bird life, deer and herds of water buffaloes.

Soft Wildlife Rafting
Taking a raft down the Koshi River is another alternative for exploring the reserve. Here, you can see the water birds or animals off to their daily chores with wonderful sights like Kingfishers diving down the river looking for food, the marsh muggers or the ghariyal crocodiles sun bathing but of course out of reach. You might be lucky enough to spot the rare wild buffaloes. Down the end, at the barrage Gangetic river dolphins could be your best view of the day.

Village Walk
This is another interesting activity. Tharus, the early inhabitants of the region have their own unique way of living not affected by the western influence. Their beautifully decorated homes and their way of living can be an interesting part of the tour. The village is also plastic-free, one of the few environmentally aware and clean villages in the country. The Koshi Tappu Wildlife Camp itself took this initiative towards environmental awareness and preservation

Best Time
The best time to visit this fabulous wildlife reserve is between October to March when much of the migratory and local birds can be sighted at the barrage and many of the river channels. Numerous Himalayan peaks including the Makalu I (8,463m) the fifth highest mountain in the world can be seen during the clear cooler time of the year.

Best Birds
The best bird in Koshi :
Swamp Francolin, Black-necked Stork, Lesser Adjutant, Comb Duck, Falcated Duck, Spot-billed Duck, Cotton Pigmy Goose, Baer's Pochard, Bailon's Crake, Ruddy Crake, Greater Painted Snipe, Pheasant-tailed jacana, Yellow-wattled Lapwing, Indian Courser, Black-bellied Tern, Imperial Eagle, White-tailed Eagle, Lesser Kestrel, Bristle Grass bird, Striated Grass bird etc
