Northern India

Northern India is not visited by many travellers to India although the wildlife diversity here is second to none. It should definitely be on a must-do list of all birders as it is home to more than 50% of the bird species found in India. Key species to lookout for in this region are:

  • Mammals: Tiger, Leopard, Jungle Cat, Fishing Cat, Leopard Cat, Himalayan Black Bear, Asiatic Elephant, 3 Otter species and the Indian Rhinoceros.
  • Reptiles: Gharial Crocodile, Rock Monitor Lizard & the King Cobra
  • Birds: Great Indian Hornbill, Ibis bill, Collared Falconet, Long-tailed broadbill, Bengal Florican and the Indian Skimmer.
