Bird Watching Tour in Bangladesh

Bird Watching Tour, Bangladesh

Tour Duration: 5 Nights, 6 Days

 

Bangladesh is the habitat of more than 650 species of birds- almost half of those found on the entire subcontinent. Tucked between the Indian subcontinent and the Malayan peninsulas, Bangladesh attracts both Indian species in the west and north of the country and Malayan species in the east and southeast. It is also conveniently located for migrants heading south towards Malaysia and Indonesia and those moving south west to India and Srilanka. In addition, there are a number of Himalayan and Burmese hill species that move into the lowlands during the winter.
