From the luster of the Taj Mahal to the long bubbling call of the Eurasian Cuckoo, this is a custom tailored adventure that will have you traversing the ancient wonders and national parks of northern India. Witness the panorama of the expansive rolling peaks of the upper Himalayas. Course through the fabulous riverine forests that are flush with black-winged stilt. Whether cruising along the river in search of gavial or watching the sky for crested laughing thrushes, this is a bird lover’s dream...
Bharatpur – To the Birds
Today you arrive in Delhi, the capital of India. You can feel the energy radiant in the streets. Colorful saris drift in the breeze. The scent of cardamom and anise fills the air. Your private transfer meets you at the airport. You venture outside of Delhi and come to Bharatpur, home to Keoladeo National Park. You arrive at the wetlands and find the long stretch of grassland reaching to the distant trees. Step onto a shallow boat that takes you along the waterway. Groups of painted storks graze on the grass. Their long bills dig into the shallow marsh in search of small fish and frogs. Their wingspan reaches up to 63 inches in a mixture of black and white feathers. You watch the graceful birds soar through the tranquil sky as the sun begins to set.
