Bird-Watching Chopta (Kedarnath Wildlife Sanctuary)

Chopta in Kedarnath Wildlife Sanctuary is lush green with some excellent winter and spring birds and spectacular landscapes. A mix of deodar and pine forest with rhododendrons, amidst lush green 'Bugyal' or grasslands, it is perhaps the best and easiest in India to see the Himalayan Monal, the stunning 'nine-coloured' state bird of Uttarakhand. accessible from place.
That alone would be worth the long drive, but there's more to the area. This place is the most favorite of bird lovers, every year people from this country and abroad come to see the birds.
Particularly the Himalayan Monal, as well as other birds such as the Kalij and Koklasa Pheasant, the delightful Brown Dipper, the Nutatch and the Laughing Thrush. Chopta is a wonderful place for wildlife lovers, birdwatchers and photographers alike.
