With over 550 different species, Himachal Pradesh has 45% of all India’s birds! No wonder ornithologists flock here. And one of the best places for birding is Tirthan. With their great variety of altitude and vegetation, both the Tirthan Wildlife Sanctuary and the Great Himalayan National Park have been designated IBAs (Important Bird Areas), which means here you have the greatest chance to see some of the rarest birds in India. You can either choose to camp and birdwatch (₹3,000 per person per day) or go on a guided ornithological day hike (₹1,000 per person for a group).
