Spiny Babbler, Kande Bhyakur in Nepali, is an endemic bird of Nepal, so far found only in Nepal. This is the bird of the dense scrubs in the middle hills of Nepal. We are lucky to have this bird around the Shivapuri national park and in this area of Haibung actually around the resort.
This area is wonderful for bird life, over looking the spectacular Himalayan views, that can be enjoyed from the comfort of Prakriti Organic Resort in Haibung, located right next to wonderful biodiversity hotpots of the country- Shivapuri National parks. This “Spiny Babbler Trail” explores the area below and around the Resorts. This area is
not just important for the Spiny Babbler for numerous species of birds that are also very rare and endangered birds. Seeing well over 50-60 species of birds or even more is a great reward of birding, within few hours of walking around.
