Quest for the Snow Leopard

Inhabiting among the most remote regions on Earth, the Snow Leopard is a fitting symbol of wilderness. Among seemingly inhospitable rocky hills, these most secretive of big cats eke out an existence worthy of admiration, and they are most attractive and sure-footed creatures as well. On this special expedition created especially for wildlife and wilderness lovers, we visit the trans-Himalayan region of Ladakh in northern India where we’ll have an opportunity to track this elusive creature. After meeting in Delhi, we travel to the gateway city of Leh, capital of the erstwhile Buddhist Kingdom of Ladakh, which has a decidedly Tibetan feel. Here, as we acclimate to the mountain air, we’ll have a chance to absorb the eclectic cultural mélange and get our first taste of the dramatic landscapes and its habitats. We’ll then move north to Hemis National Park, India’s only park north of the Himalayas and known for its Snow Leopards. Spending several nights at a single, comfortable lodge here, we’ll make daily sorties into the surrounding hills and watch for the cats, along with other mammals and a myriad of mountain birds particular to this region. Our patience and persistence may be rewarded not only in sightings of Snow Leopards but also in the wonderful sense of serenity that these silent mountain habitats provide. I invite those who love wilderness and adventure and are seeking to ‘unplug’ to join me on this grand adventure!
