Ladakh -Snow-Leopard-Expedition

Snow Leopard Expedition

Ghosts of the mountain' they are called. Elusive but ferocious, they rule the higher reaches of the Himalayas. This trip offers an excellent chance of spotting snow leopards in their natural habitat. The stark mountains of Ladakh towards the North West of India are its most famous hunting grounds. With less than 2 people per square kilometre, Ladakh is truly remote and very sparsely populated.

Trip Summary

Ghosts of the mountain' they are called. Elusive but ferocious, they rule the higher reaches of the Himalayas. This trip offers an excellent chance of spotting snow leopards in their natural habitat. The stark mountains of Ladakh towards the North West of India are its most famous hunting grounds. With less than 2 people per square kilometre, Ladakh is truly remote and very sparsely populated. Buddhists of Tibetan origin, in their small mud huts, are the only few people you'll come across while you are on the trail of the snow leopard. Domestic yaks, horses and goats graze the sparse vegetation by day, but every evening they must return to fenced enclosures to avoid nocturnal predation by the omni-present snow leopards and wolves. Camping in remove valleys across the length of this expedition will be as exciting as following the trail of the ghost cat.
