In Search of the Snow Leopard

Cloaked in beauty and mystery

Snow Leopards are rare throughout their range in the Himalayas and Tibetan Plateau.  Hunting sparse game over large territories of very rugged terrain, it is difficult to predict or plan to see a Snow Leopard in the wild and there are never guarantees. However, JOURNEYS senior naturalist-guide Avi Sarkhel has been monitoring a particular Snow Leopard population in Ladakh which he has  been able to relocate on frequent occasions. Observing and photographing these Snow Leopards of Ladakh will be the main goal of this trip.  Certainly you will also see other mammals and birds, as well; and each evening you'll enjoy the traditional Ladakhi hospitality for which this Buddhist area of the Himalayas is noted.  Several nights will be spent in tents, and temperatures may go down to 5 degrees fahrenheit. You may hike higher than 13,000’ after acclimatizing in the Indus and Zanskar Valleys at 11,000’.  In the past, the Snow Leopards have been observed both close to the villages where you will stay and in more remote areas accessed by full days of vigorous hiking, sometimes through snow.
