Tour dates 14th - 23rd of November 2013
No matter which criteria you use to judge India, it is one of the most diverse and exciting holiday destinations on earth. The constant presence of archaeological reminders of the country's extraordinary history and the fascination of becoming immersed into a completely unique and complex culture are reasons enough to visit India. However, for anyone interested in wildlife then the attractions of wild India are simply too great to resist. Colourful and diverse are two adjectives nearly always applied to India and both perfectly describe the flora and fauna.
This tour concentrates on the area of and around the Corbett National Park and includes a visit to Pangot in the north eastern region of India. In all we will stay in three different places, two outside the park and one inside the park (Dhikala). Our visit to Pangot will give us the opportunity to take-in great views of the Himalayas, weather permitting, and also give us opportunities to see such species as White-throated Laughing Thrush, Altai Accentor and other local specialities. Corbett Park was India's first national park and is Tiger and Elephant country. It is ranked as one of the best managed parks in the subcontinent and is one of the last surviving stretches of untouched sub-Himalayan wilderness. The main area of the park has over 585 species of bird and 50 species of mammal, so we hope this should impress the most discerning of wildlife travellers!
