Brachycorythis obcordata from Chakrata area


Beautiful orchid. I too saw and photographed it first time this year.


Another beauty

When are we making our next trip to Chakrata?


Thanks … Sir I was planning in September but some official problem. What is your suggestion about Banjar Valley in Himachal in Last of October. Altitude range is very diverse there 1000 mts to 3500 mts and way is safe in Kullu Mandi Dist of Himachal


Let us not delay it much, as high altitude vegetation would now start losing flowering phase.

You can make it as per your convenience. I am always ready.
Tomorrow night we are going for two day visit to Jim Corbet. Will be back on 7th, but I will miss Orchidaceae excitement during these two days. 


Perhaps this is not easy for both of us, as I am to go on a plant collection tour with B.Sc. students, in mid October (same is the case with …)…

We are also leaving for Morni Hills tomorrow, will be back on 6th evening, wishing you all the best for Jim Corbett Tour..


Sir I was planning so many things but have to cancel some family commitments. Now leaving for Shimla with Students on 16-10-13 for 4 days on plant excursion tour. Now we have no much options left. May be we have option from 30th oct to 3 Nov.. 


I never went along Kali river, I wish I had.
Thanks for sharing this wonderful pics of a wonderful orchid !! 


Nice Shots Again … Is the way towards Gori and kali valley Open ?????
