FEATURED DESTINATION

Snow Leopard in Ladakh

In search of the ‘Ghost of the Mountain!'

This has been a lifelong dream of mine since I first laid eyes on this Mountain Ghost, the elusive Snow Leopard on the Discovery Channel! The snow leopard is the Apex predator of the Himalaya Mountains.

We finally have a magnificent opportunity (without having to camp in freezing horrid pup-tents) to trek daily in an area with a wonderful local guide who knows where to find them, our camera’s and tri-pods in tow!

I am over the moon! We will have 3nts in Leh this old central Asia charming town, to acclimatize to the high elevation to prepare us for the 7nts trekking in Ulley Village in Ladakh, to find our beautiful Snow Leopard!

Snow Leopard in Ladakh

During that time in Leh, also known as little Tibet, we will visit several Tibetan monasteries visited by the dear Dali Lama! Leh is like stepping back in time, local folks still wear stove pipe hats with felt boots with turned up toes!

If you are a photographer, you will not want to miss this one! I invite like-minded travelers who are OK with a bit of basic and sparse accommodation as we search in earnest for this magnificent cat that few have seen in the wild!
