Drove up the valley with our guide to do some birding. The trip offers great views of the mountains and the river below. Worthwhile as a side trip.

Snowman Trek, what can I say, it's definitely the hardest trek in the world. There are no easy days on the Snowman, but if you want to prove something, go for it!

I was impressed with the surroundings rather than the park. I can understand why the park has lesser animals. It’s simply not possible to have more animals from around the world, because in winter it gets very cold. I had stayed in Bhutan during winter, and it can be freezing, which will make animals from hotter parts of the world... More

If you ask me, it was more like a cage than a park. You see, all I found was some deer and takin. Birds can be spotted, as with all places around Bhutan. There was some construction work going on. Hopefully in sometime, the infrastructure would improve. Oh yes, there are two locations inside the park which sell handwoven scarves.... More

The location is good, so as infrastructure; but there is nothing! No animals, no birds, just a couple of 'Takin', the national animal of Bhutan!

Don't expect the typical National Park literature here. This is a wild wild place where the Bengal Tigers from India have been migrating. Neither should you expect photo-genic views from here. But for birdwatchers this is paradise. The little brooks hold forktails, yuhinas, parrotbills and more.

I fail to understand why this park has so many birds. It’s just incredible that you will find birds everywhere. There so many species of birds, lovely place if you love hanging with birds.

If you have time, then make your way to this park to spend your day. There are many birds, of different types and species. You will know a lot about the birds.

The park is full of birds. If you don’t love bird watching, turn your attention somewhere else. There are many other places in Thimpu to find attractive locations.

I have been here only once - we came early and spent the whole day here. It is possibly one the best places in Bhutan for birders. The sheer diversity of species and the easy gradient makes this a must for any birder coming to Bhutan. Those not interested in nature should not come here as they will be disappointed.... More
