We’re delighted to be offering this new tour to Thailand in 2024! It is sure to be popular, read on to find out why…
The Kaiser-i-Hind Teinopalpus imperialis is a Titan of the butterfly world! It is probably the most iconic butterfly of Thailand and one of the most beautiful Papilionidae of South-West Asia. Let us guide you through beautiful mountains and forests and to the top of high mountains to see and photograph this mythical butterfly and other interesting altitude species.
We will also visit, among other locations, the world-famous puddling site of Chiang Dao, where a great quantity of species puddles, thanks to the special composition of the soil.
We have two simple but important things to tell you about this trip. The first, is that you should be fit and mobile enough to be able to trek (on an easy trail), climbing for a little more than 300 metres height, for a length of 3.5 km. The second, to photograph the Teinopalpus it is recommended that you bring a telephoto lens, a minimum a 300mm and ideally 400mm or longer.
Book your places soon on what promises to be a superb and very special experience!
