W-India + W-Tragopan near Kullu

A bit last-minute, but if anyone is willing to share costs for the following:

West-India 21-27th of April: Start in Udaipur with a private car, going counterclockwise to Tal Chappar / Bikaner / Jaisalmer / Siwana / Abu and ending at Udaipur (airport). Targets are all classic birds on a W-India itinerary. While that's a bit late in the season, most if not all target birds should be possible. I am aware at recent hiccups regarding entry at DNP but that should be OK by now.

Cost = mainly the air-con spacious car + flexible driver (around 500 euro for 7 full days Udaipur-Udaipur) and hotels + meals (all can be had quite cheap, to be discussed as a function of convenience for birding). I would he happy if any number between 1-3 people would join. There is no birding guide but at the DNP there will be a good one, and for all other sites I am happy to find my own stuff (homework done) or I rely on some locals pointing out areas or birds. The trip is very target-orientated.

Greater Himalaya National Park 28th of April - 3-4th of May: During this week I will be chasing some chickens around Kullu (I am leaning to visiting the classical site at Khorli Poi). This involves some trekking and camping. I hope to get quotes for prices this week from reputable local agencies. Target birds are all pheasants (W-Tragopan and Cheer Pheasant, but also Koklass Pheasant, Himalayan Monal) + some W-Himalayan specialties. For this week I am not looking for more than 1 companion as more companions = more chickens flushed...

If interested in any (or both) of these week-long itineraries, let me know through PM.

Ofcourse, this was a good reason to change my avatar from Temminck's to some other Tragopan
