Mountain Quail Birding Lodge
Almora

Himalayan vistas and alluring wilderness at Mountain Quail Birding lodge bewitch all those who travel to Pangot. Run by Sid Anand, who resides in the Kumaon Hills, Mountain Quail has a homely yet outdoorsy feel to it and is committed to conservation and protecting the environment. The clue in the title rings true, Mountain Quail is ideal for our bird watching enthusiasts. Spotted forktail, redbilled blue magpie, Kaleeje, Golden Eagle and Himalayan Friffon are a few examples of the many species you can expect to see.

The lodge is comprised of four cabana style suites all with en suite facilities. Wooden and simple, the suites have a back-to-nature feel to them which is wholly appealing, the perfect excuse to retract from technological pressures of modern society. In the restaurant, local Kumaoni chefs prepare exquisite local dishes and are just as happy to provide continental options too, with both cuisines on the menu. Mountain Quail is fantastic for the wilderness wanderers as the area boasts multiple activities from trekking to horse safaris.

To my mind, the greatest reward and luxury of travel is to be able to experience everyday things as if for the first time, to be in a position in which almost nothing is so familiar it is taken for granted.

I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, India
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
Ampersand’s preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet booking age. They were a delight to deal with!
- Mr David Wallace, North India
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
