New Delhi, the capital city is the focal point of inbound birders since it provides comfortable access to destinations in the Nainital District in the State of Uttarkhand. But the in-between hot spots are visited first as they are nearer and on the way.
The popular itinerary includes Bharatpur in Rajasthan State, Chambal River Sanctuary in Madhya Pradesh. The next destination is Corbett Tiger Reserve followed by a visit to Sat Tal and Pangot all in Nainital.
The quest for quaint and exotic birds is never-ending, and the trip yields in a large number of them being check listed. The targeted species are the Indian Skimmer, Ibisbill, Koklass Pheasant, Cheer Pheasant, Sarus Crane, and many others. The degree of difficulty is high as one has to traverse mountain tracks on foot for long-distance.
