Shay and Philip took a friend and me on a 10-day birding trip on the Sichuan part of the Tibetan plateau, including places legendary among bird watchers, such as Balangshan, Mengibshan, and Ruoergai. While I was initially a bit skeptical about the nature of the tour (I generally do not like guided tours), it proved absolutely worth it to have both Philip (to drive and to deal with the occasional oversuspicious police) and particularly Shay (for finding and identifying birds) around. While Shay has probably seen every bird on the trip multiple times, he is not content with just finding it and showing it to you but tries to make sure that you can also get a good photo of it, should you want to do so. This goes to the point where - if a bird was difficult to photograph - it sometimes was me giving up rather than Shay. In conclusion, I think I would not have seen half of the birds on this trip had I taken it on my own. Highly recommended.

Bella and Philip with Alpine Birding not only crafted a wonder trip to showcase the beauty of Sichuan but were able to navigate unexpected changes with ease and skill. They guided us to experience more than 70 kinds of birdsc including Collar Crow, Tremnick’s Tragopan, and Golden Pheasant, along with many species of mammals. They were also knowledgable about regional culture. If you’re looking for a guide that will give you a deeper understanding of the nature of Sichuan, look no further than Alpine birding.

On November 2019 we had an amazing birding trip to Sichuan area with AlpineBirding. We went for 6 days to Wolong, Longcanggou and Labahe, and thanks to Shay, our guide, we manage to see many beautiful birds in an incredible scenery. One of the highlights were 4 different Red Pandas that gave us amazing view!!! You can't go wrong with AlpineBirding and I can highly recommend to travel in Sichuan and china with them, and I hope to do that again myself.

Hi Yohay, Thank you so much for leaving us such a lovely review! It was such a pleasure traveling 6 wonderful days with you in western Sichuan. Please first allow me to represent the AlpineBirding team to express our heartfelt thanks to you, we can’t implement the trip smoothly and see so many stunning creatures within a week without your precious trust and understanding throughout the whole trip. Shay was also very excited to see the red pandas, as well as other species like Chinese Monal, Tibetan Snowcock, Snow Partridge, Blood Pheasant, White-browed Tit-warbler, Great Barbet, etc. He enjoyed traveling with you a lot. China is such a big country with abundant and incredible bird resources. We hope to show you more and explore those amazing birding places together with you in the future. Thank you for choosing AlpineBirding! We are looking forward to meeting you again very soon. Yours sincerely, Bella On behalf of AlpineBirding Team

My husband and I are just returned from an amazing and very professional Birding Tour by Alpine Birding in the Wolong Preserve/Balang Shan area; Western Sichuan Province. Gorgeous forests and alpine landscapes, the dividing line between the Sichuan Basin and the Qinghai Plateau. Awe-inspiring views! We had a 1 1/2 day experience, all inclusive with a private driver (to and from and during the location), delicious meals and snacks and water provided, a room for the overnight stay, and our extraordinary Birding Guide Shay who showed and instructed us on far more birds than we could've hoped to see had we been on our own! He generously shared his superior equipment and bird identification field guide, and went above and beyond our expectations in stopping at many many locations to look for birds! We were impressed by his knowledge of bird identification and his deftness of scoping! Attention to detail was one of the hallmarks of our experience; We felt very well taken care of:) While our trip was of necessity a simple overnight/daytrip, I highly recommend a longer excursion; We will definitely do another AlpineBirding tour in the future:)
