7th September, 2019 is International Vulture Awareness Day. Have a look at the You Tube films we have made on the Indian vultures.
This vulture day is special for me and my friend Geeta. We discovered a natural nesting site of Himalayan Griffon Vultures in Lunta Valley.
The sightings were confirmed to be those of Griffon Vultures by none other than Chris Bowden who heads "SAVE"(Saving Asia's Vultures
On a four day visit to Dharamshala in August, 2019, a trek to Nagooni falls rate as my best experience in Dharamshala.The Lunta
Valley trek to Nagooni falls starts from the small hydroelectric project at Kharota in Khaniara,9 km from Dharamshala, Himachal Pradesh.The route is taken by goats, mules, cows and shepherds.Goat farming is the main source of income for marginal and landless

of their nest site was a thrilling experience.
