This unique trip is designed for you in the beautiful land of Chopta and Sattal.

Chopta is one of the few unspoiled and unpolluted freshwater biomes in India. Sattal or 'Sat Tal' in Hindi for seven lakes is an interconnected group of seven freshwater lakes near Bhimtal. These lakes are a paradise for migratory birds.

In this trip, we will go for jungle hikes, and several sessions of birding and photography, including a special session of 'Hide Photography' to get some amazing shots of these rare and beautiful birds.
