Saw all 34 endemics with ease!

Corey and Diane Callaghan with Athula

Diane and I are sitting at the airport now waiting for our flight. I wanted to email you and thank you (and Athula) for the amazing experience and trip we had. Feel free to copy and paste any or all of this commentary onto your website, and especially onto Athula's reviews.

From the very beginning, the experience was great as the response to our initial inquiries was very quick and professional. The trip was organized well with a great itinerary.

Athula was a fantastic guide! Incredibly knowledgeable about the local culture, the areas, and most importantly the birdlife. We saw all 34 endemics with ease! No worries at all. And many other bonus birds throughout the tour. Some bonus birds included: Kashmir Flycatcher, Pied Thrush, Sykes's Warbler, Slaty-legges Crake, Bay-backed Shrike, Collared Pratincole, White-tailed Iora, Black-backed Dwarf-Kingfisher, and Legge's Hawk-Eagle! We saw a total of 243 bird species (pending a few photos that need to be reviewed), and Leopard and Blue Whales were a real treat, was plenty of Golden Jackals, and even a Streaked Mongoose.

This would not have been possible without Athula's expert guiding and advice, and all his secret connections and spots that he had. He was polite, courteous, and patient. Diane (who was 5 months pregnant) was in great hands the entire time! And even though she cares far less about the birds than I do, Athula still took the time to get her on almost all the species we saw! I would highly recommend a tour with WalkWithJith, and especially Athula as a guide!

After I return to Australia, I'll send more details on trip totals, and some photos. And will also write up a trip report at some point!

Thanks again!!
