This was an excellent tour. Vimal T. knows the area well. He is a skilled birder who knows the birds in the area and how to find them. We found 50 species of birds from the most common to the most exotic during the day. Vimal is very personable and his English is excellent.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks, Andrew for taking time to write your kind feedback. It was pleasure meeting and showing around Godawari, that is rich in birdlife.

Vimal was an excellent guide and an amazing naturalist. We had a great time, saw and heard tons of birds, plants and bugs, and also learned a lot about the region and Nepal in general. Vimal was very committed to showing us as many birds as possible. I highly recommend this trip specifically and Vimal as a guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks, Nash, pleasure taking you and Amy around and share my knowledge of the area in nature. And yes did learn a lot about insects world from you too and will send pictures when I have too...being with other nature lover and naturalist always a great opportunity for me too, thanks
Vimal is the perfect birdwatching guide - very knowledgeable, good company and clearly committed to bird and environmental conservation in Nepal. He confirmed arrangements in advance of our trip, arrived early and the transport arrangements were faultless. I also saw a good number of bird species and got some photos that I am very pleased with. I recommend Vimal with no hesitation whatsoever.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for your kind words Keith, was my pleasure taking your around.
Vimal is pleasant and knowledgable. During our morning at Godawari, we saw a wide array of birds including barred owlet, great barbet, white-crested laughing thrush, orange-bellied leaf bird, and fire tail sunbird. He puts his love of birds and deep concern for their future into action with his work as a director of Bird Conservation Nepal.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Jan for taking time to write these kind words and was great pleasure showing around our birds in Godawari, that hope was memorable to you too. Just...I am in board as EC member but not a director...Have a great day!

We employed Vimal to serve as a guide seeking birds for a photographic effort over two days. The weather wasn't great but everything else about our field time surely was. Plenty of new bird species around in interesting settings, but the light was poor or we were in the rain - just that time of year I'm afraid. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Vimal to anyone wishing to maximize their field time in Nepal. Vimal is conscientious, professional and a really good man all around…
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Kirk for your great words, appreciate really...regards/Vimal
