South India Bird & Wildlife Tour

This is a tour specifically designed to sight all the 24 Western Ghats endemics as well as most of the 68 South Indian endemics, along with more than 500 species of birds in the peninsula and the endemic mammals like the Nilgiri Tahr and the Nilgiri Langur. Southern India is home to some of the best National parks and wildlife sanctuaries in India. Most of these parks are located on the sides of the Western Ghats, one of the 35 bio-diversity ‘hot spots’ on earth due to its large volume of endemic species and diversity. Our journey will take us through the dry forests of Mysore and Mudumalai, high altitude montane forests & grasslands at Munnar, Ooty, and finally to Thattekkad and Cochin.
