Birding in Taiwan

Birding, City & More

28 Sep - Oct 4, 2019

WHY TAIWAN?

Taiwan, with an area of 36,000 sq. km, has records of more than 577 species of birds, forming the second highest bird density anywhere in the world. The view of the evening sky and cloud formations set against the mountain ranges is a sight that is hard to surpass.

The country's nature conservation and protection efforts are well applauded and forms an inspiration for many others. We look forward to learning the best case adaptable practices and bring them back to our lives.

Expedition Itinerary

Land in Taoyuan International airport. Transfer to Taipei city and overnight at Hotel.

We will start early and explore the Taipei Botanical Garden for birding. A brief session on Birding ethics, good case practices and Taiwan Eco Conservation Model will be part of the morning session.

Post Birding, we will proceed to Camera Street. Here, we will be able to shop for amazing cool photography accessories, cameras, lenses etc. One of the best and economical places on the planet to look for photography gear.

Evening will be spent exploring Taipei 101 and night markets of Taipei. Here you can do street, architecture and cityscape photography.

A mix of both shopping world’s. Taipei offers High fashion brands at Taipei 101 & Shinkong Mitsukoshi and high quality affordable products at its night markets.

Less than an hour’s ride from our hotel in Taipei, we will reach Wulai in time for the morning to evening birding session. Beautiful waterfalls, turquoise blue river, hot springs to soak into, Wulai is a perfect family getaway.

Post birding, we will return back to Taipei.

Kingfisher farm is a small bird hide in the outskirts of Taipei. Here you can photograph the Common Blue Kingfisher in action, diving into the water to catch the fish. Gear yourself up for some very close range, high speed guaranteed action packed imaging.

We will then continue driving to Daxueshan - The best birding location of Taiwan. We will first focus on high altitude birding, and hence will drive all the way to the top for our accommodation and start birding right from our camp, which is deep inside the forest area.

A full day in Daxueshan means a bounty for any bird photographer and bird watcher. We will Tick and Click as many bird species as we can.

End of Day 6, post birding, we will transfer to Alishan for overnight stay.

Last day of our expedition, but not the least. Firstly, the magical sunrise over the clouds at Alishan. Followed by more birding and landscape photography during the day.

Alishan offers an amazing experience to every visitor. Be it in the forest walks, taking the toy train ride up the hills or if you fancy walking along the tracks of the train. Flowers, Tall and huge 2000 year old trees etc. You will be lost in its scenic beauty and would never want to leave the place.

By evening, we will wind up and drive to Chiayi HSR station.

Board our Bullet train and experience the high speed thrill to the international airport.
