Overview

About the activity / tour with details:

Located at an altitude of 800 meters in the Western Ghats, Agumbe, Shimoga is the quaint little town you must visit at some point in your life! One of the last remaining rainforests of India, Agumbe is perhaps the herpetology capital of this part of the world. Embark on an exciting Agumbe photography tour expedition and you can search for the beautiful, yet fearsome species of the Malabar Pit Viper and the hump-nosed viper, amongst other exotic species.

Grab your cameras and keep a watch out in the thick vegetation for the stunning green vine snakes and if you are lucky you could even find the biggest of them all, the King Cobra! Since Agumbe receives the highest annual rainfall in South India, you can embark on this photography tour in the peak of monsoon! 

You will notice that during the Agumbe photography tour, a significant part of Agumbe lies in the heart of the mighty Sahyadris; one of the richest bird habitats of the world. If you’re lucky, you’ll stumble upon some of the avian delights of the region such as the Ceylon Frogmouth, the Malabar Trogon, Indian Pitta, Yellow Browed Bulbul and Blue Bearded Bee-eater among others. A photographer’s delight and paradise for the bird lover, this 3 day tour is all you need to unwind and spend a long time with nature!
