The Golden Grassland of the Thar Desert…!!

About the Tour :
Join Mumbai Travellers and Bike N Hike for a remarkable Birding experience at Tal Chhapar and witness the pristine glory of its ‘Golden Grasslands’which is a small yet pulsating flat saline depression with open grassland scattered like strings of pearl in the heart of the Thar Desert.

During this tour we will explore different avenues for wildlife to understand the habitat and maximize our chances of better sightings and photography opportunities. Since this is the time for the arrival of many migratory birds, we may see them coming in large numbers too.

This tour is led by Bike N Hike’s wildlife & photography expert Vipul Ramanuj along with MUMBAI TRAVELLERS, who will share his extensive knowledge on the avifauna of this region and ensure a great takeaway in terms of sightings and photo-ops. Being an exceptional photographer as well, he will be sharing various nuances of photography practically in the field and also during in-house discussions. Within this small group, one can also share and learn with fellow group mates along with having a great time birding in this Indian Savannah.

Over a cup of tea, we’ll have a brief orientation about Tal Chhapar, its habitat, the different species of birds and other wildlife found here plus how our days ahead would be like. Post lunch, we will proceed for our first drive and explore the grassland ecosystem for birds, Blackbucks and Foxes. Overnight at the hotel.

Day 2 :
Early morning wake up and gear up for another day of exploring the grassland habitat.During this photo-tour, we will be going for drives within the park and to a few other birding spots as well.

From tight shots of birds to flight and scape shots, we will have ample chances to experiment and capture not only some amazing wildlife moments but also the beautiful landscape. The grasslands and the golden light together make up a delightful blend for every photographer. Since the light will be too harsh in the noon hours, we will relax for a few hours after lunch and head out for our evening session. Once we’re back at the base, every evening we will have a photo-review session which will involve discussions on the learning and challenges faced during the day while photographing. This session is also a great way to learn from one another, as the outcome of the sessions will also be shared

Day 3 :
On the last day after our morning session, we will conclude the workshop by 11:30 am.
