BirdingTours Asia China Birding in Tibet

Our guests about China

Thanks for your good words, for me too it was easy to travel with your team,
I certainly will join some trips in the future, maybe Botswana and of course Costa Rica. Sergey B. Russia

My first visit to China was surprising in many ways. The highlight for me was without any doubt the visit to Tibet. I am really glad I came on this tour and you certainly will see me back soon. I booked Thailand already. John. B Spain

We did not expect to find so many photo opportunities, it was great. We now know how it is to stay for a longer period on a higher altitude. Thank you for an excellent organisation. Roger and Marie. N. Ireland

Impressions of China

Birding extension to Tibet
potala-palaceTibet, whose Chinese name Xizang means "Western Treasure House", has long exercised a unique hold on the imagination of many Westerners. Often referred as the "Roof of the World" most of the province is made up of an immense upland plateau whose altitude ranges from 4000 to 5000 metres. Although its China's second largest province it's population is a relatively miniscule 2.7 million. Tibet is without doubt one of the most remarkable places in the whole of Asia and offers fabulous monasteries, breathtaking high-altitude treks, stunning views of the world's highest mountains and some of the friendliest people anywhere on the planet. Its also an excellent place for bird watching.
Almost 500 species of birds have been reported in Tibet and about 18 nature reserves have been established.
Although this extension is basically a birding trip we also will see some of the cultural highlights of Tibet and get an impression of the spectacular scenery.
