Arunachal Pradesh 15-22 May 2019 & Western Ghats 23-29 May 2019
Announcing our Reptile and Amphibian Expedition in May 2019
Wild India Expeditions and NAJA India are running a herpetology expedition in two of most diverse regions in the world; the Himalayan foothills of Arunachal Pradesh and montane forests of Western Ghats. We are very excited for the expedition as we found both rare and new species of reptiles and amphibians in the same areas two years ago, so yes, you will be part of a very cool, scientific expedition!
We are running the expeditions in two different forest regions over a span of 15 days (Arunachal Pradesh: 15 to 22 May & Western Ghats: 23 to 29 May). You can participate in the entire program or if you wish, you can book for a single location too, whichever is convenient for you.
Both locations have an estimated of over 300 species of reptiles and amphibians, including many rare and endemic species, and several new species. This is an intensive level expedition so be prepared for long, tough treks in leech infested montane forests, living in tribal huts/research station, and eating basic but tasty food. While it will demand your physical best, its mesmerizing forests and the wildlife within is going to be well worth it!

Soham Mukherjee – herpetologist and wildlife biologist (member, IUCN SSC Viper Specialist Group & Crocodile Specialist Group) will lead the expeditions.
