With very short notice, Samikshya and Krishna were able to provide us with a day of birding near Kathmandu. They were both very knowledgeable about the birds (over 50!) that we saw and heard. And they were very patient in helping us to spot the birds that they found. They are highly recommended. Using a birding guide is definitely the best way to identify so many birds in a new area.

5 day birding trip in the hills around Kaauke and Gadhi and Chitwan National Park. Prem and Bishnu are excellent bird guides and engaged conservationists. They are well connected with the local communities and organized homestays that provided a unique experience. Birding in paradise, especially Chitwan offers a wide variety of beautiful birds even in the birding off-season November. Thanks so much.

We only had one extra day in the Kathmandu area, and after scouring the internet, we chose to go birding with Nepal Birding Holidays. We had a wonderful day, birding on Phulchoki Hill and other birding hotspots in the area. Prem and Krishna are experienced birders, and their passion for birding helped make our day phenomenal. We saw more species than expected, and, well, we just had so much fun with both of them! We wholeheartedly recommend booking a birding tour with Prem and Krishna. And Bishnu was very professional and friendly in organizing the day for us. We also had the opportunity to bird with Sam, and found her to also be a stronger birder, and a joy to be around. Thanks so much to the entire team at Nepal Birding Holidays!!!

Our decision to go to Nepal birding was very last minute and how very lucky we were to chose Samsara Trekking. We had a fantastic week seeing a little of sights of Kathmandu before then walking and driving through the stunning scenery of the Chitwan NP area and on our last day exploring the hills around Kathmandu. Guided by our knowledgeable hosts Prem and Bishnu Thapa we saw and identified almost 200 bird species along with amazing close encounters with rhino, sloth bear, mongoose, deer, bats, crocodiles, thousands of butterflies and dragonflies. No leopard or tiger for us this time but leopard in particular are regularly seen. Our exploring of Kathmandu was a real bonus as Prem is so knowledgeable on the history of the the country, the city and the range of religions and cultures that have made Katmandu the sprawling, crazy but fascinating city it is today.

Prem and Bishnu's knowledge of the local birds, wildlife and countryside was exceptional and no surprise from brothers that were born and raised amongst the forest, wetlands and rivers of Chitwan. They looked after us all the way from pick up and then return to the airport leaving us only flights and beers to cover. It was a full on week and we were sad to have to leave when there is so much more to see and experience in Nepal.

We highly recommend Samsara Birding Holidays for a 'real' experience of Nepal and we are already planning our return next year to explore the parks in the West and trek into the mountains.

I did the langtang trekking (9 days) and then Chitwan (8 days) with samsara trekking. Everything was organized perfectly. The guide Bishnu is a very skillful birder and was a very good company, always very helpful. We had a lot of fun and spotted more then 320 species of birds and about 20 species of mammals. Bishnu even mananged to spot a leopard at the langtang trek!
The last day his brother Prem showed me the cultural heritage of kathmandu. He is teaching buddhism at the university of Kathmandu and so he could explain the meaning of the carvings and rites very vivid.

My wife an I did a one day one day tour to Phulchoki Hill with Samasara Trekking. Our guides, Prem and Krishna were exceptional! Very knowledgable about the birds, local ecology and wildlife. We managed to see a large number of birds including many of the specials for the area. I can recommend these guys unreservedly. Tour cost were also very reasonable.

Our trip took us to Bardia and Chitwan National parks, Pokhara, and the vulture rescue centre at Pithauli. In addition we birdied on the outskirts of Kathmandu at the start and finish of our two weeks in Nepal.
The birding was excellent. We have done four previous trips in the Indian sub-continent but our highly competent guides showed us more than twenty species I had not previously seen. In all we recorded about two hundred and forty species, including Nepal’s only endemic, the elusive and highly sought-after Spiny Babbler. Even on the last day we added several spectacular birds to our list. There were also good mammal sightings, including five deer species, rhinoceroses and a close view of a tiger!
Transport, with one minor exception, was well organised. Our accommodation was fully adequate and the local food was always well received.
At our request we also did some sightseeing in Pokhara and Kathmandu.
Prem, Raju and Santa proved to be excellent guides, with good eyesight and good knowledge of the bird calls.
I thoroughly recommend these dedicated conservationists for a birding holiday in Nepal.

We just had a lovely birding trip organized by Samsara Trekking. Prem and Bishnu are very experienced and interesting to talk to. They took good care of us, and they really know their birds and wildlife. We covered several geographic areas including Bardia, Lumbini, Chitwan, and ShivaPuri. At all times we felt secure and well cared for. It was a lovely way to visit the country and to see the amazing wildlife.

From the moment I corresponded with Samsara they were professional and very responsive. I had many questions and they always took the time to answer each one in an honest and professional manner. We did an 8 day birding and wildlife trip. Bishnu our guide was awesome. The trip was very well organized and a ton of fun. I highly recommend Samsara
