About Eaglenest Wildlife Sanctuary

Ask any birder in India which their dream destination for bird-watching is, and a unanimous cry will be “Eaglenest”!

Made popular with the discovery of the Bugun Liochichla in 2006 – an endemic bird of Eaglenest aptly named after the local Bugun tribe. Eaglenest is contiguous with the Pakke Tiger Reserve, Sessa Orchid Sanctuary as well as Nameri Tiger Reserve – and its relative isolation and low population distribution has ensured that it remains as one of India’s last large pristine forest stretches, relatively undisturbed as yet by the pressures of human development.

The accessible birding areas lie between 500m – 2800m above sea-level covering a range of habitats from Lowland Evergreen Forest, Temperate broad-leaved Forest, Bamboo, Coniferous and Scrub. Close to 500 species are recorded here and it has been declared an Important Bird Area (IBA). Book your Birdwatching tour to this place here!

Tiger Safari with Sanjay Gupta and Nature Safari India.
We just finished the first half of two tiger safari tours in India. The first was on the Banhavgar National Park.
