Tour duration- 11 Days
In this tour, we will take you to explore the #wildNepal, in the east, in search of this critically endangered, elusive and cutest animal, “Red Panda”. Even though, they are also found in different parts of the country, the chances of exploring them in this area is much higher. To maximize their sighting, we will be working with the local community, that are well trained and are from the same area. These trained communities are the guardian of the Panda and other wildlife in that area. They are are trained to track with least impact on them and the same time visitors/nature lovers would get chance to see them in their natural habitat. Its sear joy to see these lovely animal in their own natural habitat.
Besides, “Red Panda” the area is also blessed with well over 200 species of birds, among them some are endemic to this area and hence only seen in this part of the country. The area with the Mai Pokhari and the forest slopes and creeks are very lively with the birds. Along with the national birds of Nepal- Danphe, the amazing Himalayan Monal and Satyr Tragopan, Red-tailed Minla, Yellow-cheeked Tit, Hume’s Bush Warbler, Rufous-chinned Yuhina etc. are the birds of this area.
