Sachin organised a birding trip in the high altitude cold desert of Ladakh this September 2021. The itinerary was well designed , giving enough time in each place , else often such trips can be far too rushed. Also ,the places chosen gave a nice variety even within this region . Was very happy with the accommodation booked for us too. We enjoyed very good hotels in Leh and Nubra , while the more remote areas ,had the most delightful home stays , which are a unique , intimate experience , to have a very genuine welcome and stay , with local families. The two vehicles used also were in excellent condition and made our journeys very comfortable. Sachin ,along with two very experienced and dedicated Ladakhi guides , were very astute about scouting for birds wherever we went , and even along the way , while driving , they had their senses tuned in to any possible sighting. Birds here were much harder to spot than my trip in Uttarakhand and hence I commend their efforts and skill all the more. They were systematically also trying their best to look for birds on a list of species that is found in this region, whether as residents or as migratory for that season. And they do their best to not disturb the places too , like some might , with using recorded bird calls , to entice birds to come out. Seeing such a variety of birds at such a high altitude is a different joy for sure and the rose finch was the ultimate highlight for me , even though only one showed up , but it was so close and stayed for so long , too delightful. One can visit his Travelderness page on FB to know more about the birds sighted on this trip.

The trip was meticulously planned and executed to perfection to suite our requirements of birding. Icing on the cake was birding while it was snowing. Our guide knew all the happening birding hotspots and the bird species and that was a great help. I was able to see some very exotic species that I had hoped for and some more. Got nice pics too. The tour operator even accommodated our last minute request to add a stop during the return leg. Perfect trip. I have already done 3 trips with this organisation and plan to do more. Just waiting for the pandemic to be over.

I Visited pilibhit tiger reserve in January 2019 with 2 more people. That was my first tour with travelderness. I heard a lot about Mr. Sachin pushkarna and travelderness so I planned my first ever pilibhit tour with them .. he is such a great host that he even changed the tour dates as per my convenience because I missed their last tour . Sachinji is a very knowledgeable , experienced birder and has a significant knowledge of Indian wildnerness as well . He looks after the group members as his own family . In just a period of only 3 - 4 days we all developed family like bonding and intimacy ... He takes best care of the guests as per their individual need , provide the wonderful tastier food of guest's choice and best available accomodation. I was very much amazed with his very caring and loving hostship and would love to do more n more wildlife and birding tour with travelderness ...💖💖💖
