I was disappointed to find out that there were road works on the road leading to the summit of Bachma National Park meaning access to the park was not possible. Fortunately, our concierge at the Banyan Tree Lang Co was able to make contact with the park ranger or ‘bird man of Bachma’. So we were really looking forward to a morning’s birding in the area with the guide….
We set off early and arrived at the park where we met our guide who brought us on a winding mountain road up some of the way just beyond the Pheasant Trail where we set off along a forest trail. Being heavily foliaged, we heard lots of birdsong but spotting them was a different matter….
Ultimately although Bachma national park had promised much, we didn’t really get to see anything unusual or new, largely because we were unable to get to the summit. Still, the walk was interesting and the views were good.
