Nepal is a beautiful country that is home to over 887 species of birds. These birds can be found in over 37 Important Birds & Biodiversity Areas (IBAs), which are spread across seven vegetation zones including tropical, subtropical, lower-temperate, temperate, sub-alpine, alpine, & arctic. The Himalayan nation is renowned as one of the best birding holiday destinations in the world due to its rich biodiversity.
Nepal’s unique geography has created environments for many rare species of birds, some of which can only be found in the hidden valleys of the world’s highest mountain peaks. These species include the Himalayan griffon, Himalayan Monal, Cheer Pheasant, and Satyr Tragopan. Nepal is also home to the rarest bird in the world, the Bengal florican, as well as the Sarus crane in the plain of Terai. The indigenous Great Slaty Woodpecker and the rarest and only endemic bird of Nepal, the Spiny babbler, are often sighted by our birdwatching team.
Nepal’s riverine plains are the natural habitats of a plethora of winter migratory birds from as far as Siberia, the Indus Valley, Laddakh, and the Tibetan Himalayas.
The country’s diversity in culture, scenery, and wildlife is perfectly complemented by the friendliness of its people. From the magnificent Himalayas to the sub-tropical lowlands, visitors are given the warmest of welcomes. Despite covering a relatively small area of 147181 sq. km, Nepal boasts a fantastic diversity of bird-life, caused by the Indian and Palearctic influences, as well as the changes in altitude. The country’s wetlands, 12 national parks, 8 conservation areas, wildlife reserves, lakes, rivers, and mountains offer first-class bird watching beneath the shadow of the mighty Himalayas and in the shade of lush green tropical jungles.
If you choose to go birdwatching with us in Nepal, you can rest assured that you are in the hands of well-equipped and professional birders. We have been twitching around in Nepal for the last decade and a half as bird guides. During the low season, we make use of our spare time to update our knowledge and skills by making collected data coherent and accessible to those who are interested. Additionally, we run volunteer or awareness programs for nature conservation in rural parts of the country.          
We are not a huge corporate agent, but a team of local professionals, personally accessible. And this has enabled us to deal with you as your field guide. We care for the environment as much as we care about making your Nepal bird-watching dream come true, both in the tropics and in the Himalayas. You’ll find our price offers a great value for your money as compared to that of the corporate agents. Above all, we strongly support nature conservation and eco-cultural tourism
Uppardang Gadhi, also called Chepang Hill, is one of the least visited Hill Forest areas of Inner Plain, Chitwan. The site has impressed local and international birders by having been a habitat for a huge diversity of bird species. The area lies at an altitude ranging from 1275-187 meters. The forest hill is a watershed area for the villages beneath the hills to the south. The region is one of the 37 IBAs (Important Bird & Biodiversity Area). Among 637 bird species recorded in Chitwan, over 300 species are recorded in Chepang-Hill, alone.

1. “Waterproof and fog-proof binoculars are ideal for the varying weather conditions in Nepal.”
This information is already implied by the recommendation to choose binoculars with a large objective lens, which would offer better clarity in varying weather conditions. Therefore, the mention of waterproof and fog-proof binoculars can be cut.
2. “Additionally, consider purchasing a tripod or monopod for stability, especially when using heavy lenses.”
While a tripod or monopod can be helpful for stability, it is not essential information for someone who is just starting out with birdwatching. Therefore, this sentence could be cut without affecting the overall meaning of the text.
3. “Don’t forget to pack a hat, sunglasses, and sunscreen for sun protection, as well as a lightweight rain jacket for unexpected showers.”
While this information is useful, it is not essential to the core message of the text, which is to provide recommendations for equipment and gear for birdwatching in Nepal. Therefore, this sentence could be cut without affecting the main message.
