Snow Leopard Tour (14 Days #893)

When one talks about the big cats of India, the first that come to mind are the tigers and leopards. A few informed wildlife enthusiasts may also talk of the Asiatic Lions of Gir. But high in the mountain passes of Ladakh, at the northernmost tip of India, lives another big cat, one so elusive it is often called the “Ghost of the Himalayas”: the Snow Leopard. As the pioneers of this tour, we have tweaked and perfected this trip over a span of 15 years,
meaning that you have the best chances to see this magnificent predator of the mountains. Our trained guides and trackers will not only get you the best possible sightings, but also help you learn more about the other wildlife that calls this high-altitude habitat home.
