Front Page
One of the finest Birding expeditions you can find in Kerala as well as other southern parts of India (Tamilnadu & Karnataka) would be definitely Eldhose Bird Tours. We offer various bird watching and hide photography tour packages in which nearly 300 different species of birds including Western Ghats and South Indian Endemics can be sighted.

Guest Experiences

Eldhose is the original master of birding in Southern India, especially this part of the Western Ghats.
Eldhose is a soft spoken guide, residing in Thattekad. He was birding since his seventh grade in the same area. His first binoculars was gifted to him to by Sir David Attenborough during the late nineties.
One of the “must photograph” birds on my list was the white bellied shortwing. Eldhose helped me to locate the bird.
Eldhose was a fantastic guide to have.
Eldhose Birding Lodge is especially popular with Asian bird photographers and photographers.
Eldhose K.V is not only an avid birder but a highly experienced ornithologist residing within the vicinity of the bird sanctuary.
Thattekad ( Thattekadu ) is a Bird’s Paradise, first time in my photography I have seen more than 52 + species in 2 days with the help of Eldhose K V and team.
Almost all serious birdwatchers and photographers interested in the endemics species of the Western Ghats have either visited him or planned to visit Eldhose’s homestay.
