Neora Valley NP - Mahananda WLS Birding Tour

With the authority of a true fascination, bird photographers of GoingWild's birding trips experience the best one can have on field with birds. We earn a comparison with the searious birding and serious bird photography in Neora valley National Park in North Bengal by absorbing glimpse into the maze of espionage in jungle.

Century old tall trees cloaked by moss, swaying bamboo thickets and alpine conifers creates the magnificence of Neora valley National Park. Mountain ranges with different hues ranging from 3,000 ft to an astonishinh 8,000 ft is the home of some of the endemic avian fauna. Just short of 90 km from New Jalpaiguri Railway station or 100 km from Bagdogra Airport, cradled in the mountain ranges of eastern Himalaya lies Neora Valley National Park. This rich and varied exclusive Himalayan forest is characterized by the diversity of habitats. While the lower ridges are mostly covered with bush thickets perfect for luxurian growth of avian fauna; upper ridges mostly is the home for some high altitude avian rarities.

This birding and wildlife photography tour would definitely be a memory to cherish for every birder when he will roam through the birding trails of forest with expert birders from GoingWild. Since tracking birds requires skill and expertise; thus birding tours across this varied landscape accompanied by experts would be productive.
