Focus will be mainly on macro and bird photography. We will be staying at Jayanti and trek through the jungle trails to Mahakal, Buxa Fort, Lepchakha, etc. Lodging will be in WBTDC lodge or homestay, which ever is available and within budget. Do not expect much luxury. Accommodations here are pretty basic.
We will be accompanied by a local naturalist on our treks. Itinerary is open for better suggestions.
Early morning start from Alipurduar is preferable to maximize the duration of stay amidst the green

Darien National Park, Panama

Panama City, Panama

Darién National Park is a world heritage site in Panama. It is about 325 kilometers from Panama City, and is the most extensive of all national parks of Panama and is one of the most important world heritage sites in Central America.
The Darién National Park is a natural bridge spanning the two Americas. The park is home to 169 mammals and 530 bird species including jaguar, giant anteater, tapir, capybara, 5 species of macaws and of course, one of the best places to see on of the largest raptor in the world Harpy eagle.
No trip to Panamá is complete without a visit to Pipeline Road. It is considered by many to be one of the best birding locations in all of Central America if not the world. It's possible to see 300 species in a single day. A world record 450 species were seen there in a 24-hour period. Located in Soberanía National Park, this dirt road offers some seriously excellent birding along a 17 km stretch that passes through mature tropical forest and patches of secondary forest. Beyond the great birds, the birding itself is about as comfortable as it gets for lowland tropical birding with a clean, wide, flat, dirt road that is closed to vehicle traffic with a closed canopy over most the road. This combination yields easy walking, not too much sun, great views into the understory, and most importantly the forest is right there, making it easy to see so many species.
Cost sharing trip. Expected cost of 1500$ per person for the whole trip ex Panama City Airport.

I am planning to visit Leh-Ladakh with clear objective to sight Snow Leopard and other mammals. Various birds prevalent in the area. Since the cost of travelling to Hemis National Park will be high alternatively the Rigzong wildlife sanctuary, lesser known place which is located in western Ladakh is ideal habitat for Snow leopard, Tibetan wolf, Brown bear, Ibex, Red fox and varieties of birds.
However it is important for the serious co travelers to respond within 7 days with all possible queries. The temperature will be minus 12 degree on an average in the night. We will be provided with all electric blankets. The team under the able leadership of Tashi Tundup will be able to achieve our mission 'Snow Leopard'. Vehicle will be there from Leh to Leh and will carry all necessary food stuff. Team will have experienced Guide, Driver, Cook, Helper besides 4 persons. Any one who is interested may send me mail so that I can share all details of the trip.
