Birding Places in Bhutan | Where to Go

I still remember vividly about my very first day enjoying a Birding Tour in Bhutan that has been a big motivation for me to become such a person who I am now – a specialist of Go Bhutan Tours. Honestly confessing, after the wonderful trip watching every kind of bird and listening to its fresh melodies, that birding song has seemed to constantly come to my mind whenever I wake up, even could it be better than the Three Little Birds song of Bob Marley. That was my Birding Trip in Bhutan, and I want you, my dear clients, to have such a beautiful moment like I did; hence, with a list below, I would like to give you a glimpse of some of the beautiful birding places in Bhutan that you should visit during your time getting into memorable Bhutan Birding Tours.

Tropical | Sub-tropical Regions

The south region, except Punakha in the west, where the sub-tropical belt falls in with the lush vegetation consisting of broad-leaved trees prospers, is a great zone to let loose with a variety of beautiful birds, the melodious tweet, and the stunning vistas surrounding. Once in places like Semgang, Tingtingbitti, Yongola, Trongsa, Yonkola, Dewathang, Mongar, Trashigang, with the warm and moist condition, you can easily witness birds spreading their wings and fluttering from this to that tree. Moreover, when you get a little bit tired, just sit and lay your back on a tree, close your eyes then let the natural aroma and the fresh melodies stroll into your mind. There will be lots of birds you can find in this region like Himalayan monal, Satyr Tragopan, blood pheasant, Parrotbills in bamboo forests. Striated Bulbul, Common Kestrel, Spot-winged Grosbeak, Mountain Hawk Eagle, Whiskered Yuhina, Wall Creeper, Himalayan Swiftlet, Maroon Oriole, Racket-tailed Drongo, Red-headed Trogon, sultan tit, Grey Nightjar, Hill Prinia, and so many others that I cannot remember. Come and enjoy the breathtaking vibes along with the perfect song that is choir by the singing birds. There will be a thing that you should know that lowland or sub-tropical belt can be really hot and challenging in summer, especially in the mid-south region, with we monsoon and overgrowth vegetation.Himalaya Bulbul - Bhutan Birding Tours

Cool Broad Leaves Temperate & Conifer of Alpine Region

The west regions surrounding Thimphu, Paro, Bumthang, are the other wonderful areas for you to enjoy a Birding Tour in Bhutan. I myself enjoyed a birding trip to Paro and I have to say that it was fantastic to me. Through all the charming farmlands, the lower and upper broad-leaved lush forests, the riversides, I had an opportunity to marvel at lots of bird species but among them, I fell in love with Aberrant Bush Warbler, a tiny bird having an adorable shape as it looks like a lump of colorful cotton wool. There will be several bird species you will encounter like Common Sandpiper, Grackle or Hill Myna, Grey Wagtail, White-bellied Yuhina, Plumbeous Redstart, Upland Pipit, and so on. Well, there are things that I want you to know but absolutely not all. Come and experience the rhythm of Bhutan’s nature your way.Aberrant Bush Warbler - bhutan birding tours
