Tips on Birding Tour
  • Be quiet always. Birds have extremely acute hearing. Talk softly and as little as possible. Watch your step. Don’t tread on dry branches and donot wear squeky cloths or clanking equipments.
  • Move carefully and regularly. Do not make sudden move or point at the birds.
  • Try to approach bird casually as though you were not interested in it.
  • Wear somber clothing so that you merge into the background as much as possible.
  • Your birdwatching will be most successful on warm, sunny, still days. In general birds do not like windy, wet or very hot weather.

Which month is best for Bird watching in Bhutan?

Between March and May, and from September to November, are the best times to go birding in Bhutan, as these are the periods when many indigenous birds are at peak activity, and when most migratory species make an appearance.

What is the best month to visit Bhutan?

The best time to visit Bhutan is during the spring months of March to May when the valleys come alive with flowers in bloom. Be it in its festivals or festivities, clear skies and glimpses to the Himalayan peaks, flourishing Himalayan flora, and fauna, or simply beautiful snowfall.
