Jigme Dorji National Park

This is the second largest national park in Bhutan and has some beautiful broadleaf forest and birds...

my experience

I visited this area for half a day in the northern summer of 2019.

the main road through the forest where you can spot wildlife


While walking along the road and being eye-level with the forest, there are some arboreal mammals to watch out for, including Himalayan Striped Squirrel, Orange-bellied Himalayan Squirrel, and Assamese Macaque.


And for the same reason, there are birds to be seen, especially in the morning before the heat sets in. I photographed Indian Roller, Barred Cuckoo-Dove, Grey Treepie, White-throated Bulbul, White-throated Scimitar Babbler, Small Nitava, and Great Barbet.


And the lower in altitude, the bigger the butterflies...
