Are you a Birder or Trekker?

If you are planning for a birding or trekking trip to southern India, the articles here will be helpful to you. Learn about birding places and species found. There are also many trekking opportunities in the Sahyadri hills which we are exploring one by one. Feel free to drop a query and we might be able to help you.

The southern part of India forms a peninsula which supports different types of habitats. Also the presence of two mountain ranges - the Western Ghats and the Eastern Ghats - make the area rich in wildlife. Among the two, the Western Ghats is the longer and prominent. More than 500 species of birds are found in this mountain range alone. Some of them are endemic, which is seen only in this part of the world. There are various hotspots for birding in this area, which includes both sanctuaries as well as other sites.
