Guide at Eagles nest NE India (1 Viewer)


New member
Hi, I am hoping somebody has been to Eagles nest and or can recommend a good bird guide with skills to lead four British birders-someone who has tapes and the skills to use them? Any suggestions welcome-and is early December a good time bird/climate wise?
Hi Stuart and a warm welcome from me too

I'm sure you will enjoy it here and I'll look forward to hearing all your news.

Welcome to BirdForum! I am sure you will find lots to interest you here, and I hope that you enjoy your visits.
Hi Stuart,
I believe it is very difficult, in terms of Indian beaurucracy to enter Arunachal Pradesh (its a disputed area) - when I was going to Eaglenest even an Indian from Goa had a local guide deal with the formalities at the check point at Bhalukpong (the border into Arunachal Pradesh) - but not impossible.

As far as I know it is usual for guides to be arranged from outwith Eaglenest. Also, when I was there we had to have our own ground crew and supplies as Eaglenest camp only provides the basic accommodation and I believe that might still be the case.

It is possible to travel "independently" but have an Indian ground agent arrange the necessary permits, vehicles, accommodation and guide(s). In the past I have used :

Good luck with whatever option you choose
