Butterfly / Butterflying Tours in North East India & Himalaya

Butterflying Tours in Eastern India (Eastern Himalaya and North-east India)

Eastern India is home to more than 1200 species of butterflies and is considered as being the richest butterflying area, not only in our country but in the entire oriental region. The area comprises of the Eastern Himalayas, represented by a stretch of extremely rugged mountain country along the northern border of India. It lies roughly between latitudes 26°30´ and 28° N., and longitudes 87° and 97°30´ E. Its nearness to the sea and inflow of the moisture laden southwest monsoon winds makes it the most humid tract of the entire Himalayan chain. The lower latitude and relatively warmer climate have resulted in higher timberline,  higher  alpine  zone   and   higher

snow line than in the Western Himalayas. Moist steamy tropical valleys occur in the foothills flanked by densely forested slopes seemingly side by side with great snow-capped mountain ranges. The abrupt juxtaposition of so many different biotopes or life zones – ranging from almost plains level to over 6000m, and from tropical heat to arctic cold, has given to the Eastern Himalayas a flora and fauna that for richness and variety is perhaps unequalled in the world. Sheltered in the rain-shadow lie dry, practically rainless valleys, add to the ecological complexities of the jumbled habitats and make the area as a whole particularly rich in birds, plant and insect life, specially Butterflies.
