Excellent Birding
Our trip took us to Bardia and Chitwan National parks, Pokhara, and the vulture rescue centre at Pithauli. In addition we birdied on the outskirts of Kathmandu at the start and finish of our two weeks in Nepal.
The birding was excellent. We have done four previous trips in the Indian sub-continent but our highly competent guides showed us more than twenty species I had not previously seen. In all we recorded about two hundred and forty species, including Nepal’s only endemic, the elusive and highly sought-after Spiny Babbler. Even on the last day we added several spectacular birds to our list. There were also good mammal sightings, including five deer species, rhinoceroses and a close view of a tiger!
Transport, with one minor exception, was well organised. Our accommodation was fully adequate and the local food was always well received.
At our request we also did some sightseeing in Pokhara and Kathmandu.
Prem, Raju and Santa proved to be excellent guides, with good eyesight and good knowledge of the bird calls.
I thoroughly recommend these dedicated conservationists for a birding holiday in Nepal.

Highly recommended birding guides
Nov 2019
We just had a lovely birding trip organized by Samsara Trekking. Prem and Bishnu are very experienced and interesting to talk to. They took good care of us, and they really know their birds and wildlife. We covered several geographic areas including Bardia, Lumbini, Chitwan, and ShivaPuri. At all times we felt secure and well cared for. It was a lovely way to visit the country and to see the amazing wildlife.

Awesome birdwatching and nature trip
From the moment I corresponded with Samsara they were professional and very responsive. I had many questions and they always took the time to answer each one in an honest and professional manner. We did an 8 day birding and wildlife trip. Bishnu our guide was awesome. The trip was very well organized and a ton of fun. I highly recommend Samsara

Seeing a leopard very close
Apr 2019
We have two trips with Samsara. One was a birding trip to different parks and the other was a hiking trip in the Langtang Valley area. We enjoyed both trips immensely. Raju was an excellent and very knowledgeable guide. We felt he went out of his way to make our trip successful and enjoyable.

Great birding tour with a knowledgeable guide
Nov 2019
We went trekking in Langtang for approximately a week to see as many birds as possible. Raju is really a great guide who knows the best places! Moreover, he is great company, and he can tell you a lot of interesting stories about the local environment and culture.
During our relatively short trekking, we managed to see over 120 bird species, including many iconic ones like the Himalayan Monal, Bearded Vulture, Spotted Forktail and many more. Raju was able to identify almost all birds, including difficult groups like leaf warblers.
I can recommend this trekking for every birdwatcher who would like to see Himalayan birds!

Best birdwatchers in Nepal
Nov 2019
The guys from Samsara Trekking arranged a wonderfull trekking to Langtang!

The ultimate trophy on our trip to Nepal would be to find a Himalayan Monal in its typical habitat, the Himalayan slopes. In order to find these, and many other birds, the guys from Samara suggested to do a 7 day trekking into the valley of Langtang, one of the less disturbed areas in the Himalayas.

Our guide was Raju and he really had the eyes of an eagle, finding even the smallest birds. Not only did we find more than 10 Himalayan Monals and over 120 bird species, we also saw some typical mountain mammals like Tahrs, Langurs, Pica's and even a Serow.

Besides a great guide, Raju and his portar are very pleasant company and always in for a joke or a good conversation. They also provide you with excellent food and make sure you have a good bed to sleep in.

But most of all, they care a lot about the wellbeing of their guests. When symptoms of altitude sickness showed up, they did not take any risk and made sure that we got down immediatly to prevent any serious harm.

Thank you for the awesome trip and showing me the most beautiful place I have ever seen!
