03 May 2018 - 07 May 2018

Bookings Open!

This part of India is not very much explored if you compare it with other places of oriental region. Thus birding in Khonoma Nature Conservation and Tragopan Sanctuary is a virgin place for birders and bird watchers. Lying in Japfu mountain range, this birding hotspot is place where one can experience some of the range restricted birds of the pristine primary forest. Though previously this place was notoriously haunted by local hunters but due to protection achievements; day by day the place is recovering from trauma. 

well planned birding vacations for range restricted bird species of Indo-Malaya region will give you as much as joy that one is in birding heaven. So for birding or bird watching in Nagaland plan your holidays so that you have a proper idea how much you will achieve from GoingWild into the maze of espionage in jungles of north east India.

Virgin and pristine undisturbed forest, lovely bamboo growths and thickets will generate the thrill and magnificence to the nature lovers. Japfu mountain range is the part of this nature reserve, where beautiful Mountain Bamboo partridge, Assam laughingthrush is some of the favourable habitat for range restricted avian fauna like this. Lower ridges of Khonoma Nature Conservation and Tragopan Sanctuary are densely covered by shrubs and thickets which is perfect for profused growth of avian fauna; upper ridges are the home for high altitude bird species.

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.
