Delhi- Leh- Uleh-
Feb 18th – March 2nd, 2022
Truly once-in-a-lifetime wildlife and photographic experience, our Snow Leopard tour offers an excellent opportunity to see and photograph this near-mythical creature in the majestic mountains of Himalayas. Snow Leopard often referred to as the “Grey Ghost of mountains“, Snow leopard habitat is the Trans-Himalayan region of Ladakh, which has been hailed as one of the last frontiers for wildlife tourism. This incredible 13-day Snow Leopard expedition in India is a quest to search this enigmatic snow leopard and other rare Himalayan wildlife. The isolated Himalayan Buddhist monasteries and local Ladakhi community’s culture and hospitality only add to this quest’s allure.
With the help of our very knowledgeable Ladakhi local Guide and his expert tracking team, we will explore some secluded valleys of Hemis National Park, where healthy populations of this alluring Snow Leopard survive. Our tour is the Snow Leopard-centred wildlife photography tour. Still, it’s a great opportunity to photograph some rare species of birds at Hemis and Indus river valley.
