“ The best time for birdwatching in Chopta”

Late Spring (April to June): This is one of the prime birdwatching seasons in Chopta. During late spring, the weather is pleasant, and the forested areas and meadows are teeming with birdlife. Many resident bird species are active during this time, and you can observe them as they prepare for the breeding season. The flowering trees and blooming wildflowers add to the beauty of the landscape.

Early Autumn (September to November): Another excellent time for birdwatching in Chopta is during the early autumn months. The monsoon season has passed, leaving the region lush and green. This is when you can spot both resident and migratory birds as they start to return to the area. The temperatures are comfortable, and the skies are clear, making it ideal for outdoor activities.

While these two periods are generally the best for birdwatching in Chopta, the region offers avian delights throughout the year. Birdwatchers may find migratory species during the winter months and resident birds in other seasons. Therefore, depending on your preferences, you can plan your visit to Chopta accordingly.
