About Nepal Birding

Nepal Birding Guide welcomes you all to this bird watching information site. After working a decade and half in safari resorts, tour operators and trekking agencies we decided to widen the horizon of our field work. Pursuing our passion for birding we established the organisation to introduce ourselves to the birders across the globe who would like to plan their bird-watching holidays in Nepal as they know the country offer first class birding holidays in the tropical jungles, under the shadow of the mighty Himalayas.
Nepal birding features over 887 species of birds, more than 37 Important Birds and Biodiversity Areas (IBAs), and 6 vegetation zones-tropical, subtropical, lower-temperate, temperate, sub-alpine and alpine- has made Nepal one of the best birding destinations in the world. Nepal’s wetlands, national parks, lakes, rivers and mountains offer first class bird watching experience.The country’s diversity in culture, scenery and wildlife is perfectly complemented by the friendliness of its people. For a country covering 147181 sq. km there is a fantastic diversity of bird-life, caused by the Indian and Palearctic influences, plus the changes in altitude which makes birding trek and safari possible in one holiday plan. Join Us for your birding holidays in Nepal!

We Wish You A Very Happy Birding!

What Birders Are Saying

We went on a birding trip to Nepal, 13-27 April 2017. Prem and Raju Thapa, of Nepal Birding, arranged for us an interesting itinerary, touching the main birding sites of central and eastern Nepal: Shivapuri, Phulchowki and Godavari, Pokhara, Chitwan and Koshi Tappu. They tailored for us a full board birding holiday of our choices. Raju stayed with us during the whole trip. We found him to be an experienced guide, speaking great English, and he is a nice and helpful person. We saw 278 species of birds, 19 of Mammals, 3 of Amphibians and 6 of Reptiles, including many sought-after, rare and localized species.

In March 2014, I went on a birding and photography trip to Nepal visiting birding sites of Kathmandu, Pokhara and Chitwan. The trip was expertly organized by Prem, and Bishnu (Raju) was my guide for the entire trip. I had a very enjoyable time and I found Bishnu to be a wonderful guide and very good at bird identification, and also a great company. I am very pleased with the service. Nepal is a very beautiful country that I would like to see more of it. I can absolutely recommend this company and if I decide to go back to Nepal, I would definitely contact Prem and Bishnu again.

Together with a friend, I visited Nepal for a 16-day wildlife photography holiday (with the main emphasis on birds). The entire trip was organised by Prem and led by Raj. We had a thoroughly enjoyable time, observing about 280 species of bird (240 photographed) and 27 species of mammal as well as many reptiles, amphibia and numerous insects. We stayed at 3 locations involving one internal flight and the organisation was very efficient. Raj proved to be an excellent guide and was always in good humour despite our constant demands. I would not hesitate to recommend this team to organise your trip to Nepal.
