About

The king of snow-capped mountains in Himalayas- Snow Leopard, is listed as an endangered species by IUCN. Only a few hundreds of these solitary, elusive and rare predators are left in the wild. Hence, spotting a Snow Leopard is extremely rare. However, the chances of sighting one increases in the months of February to April, as during heavy snowfall, the snow leopards tend to move downwards to prey on local animals. In the later months, tracking becomes difficult, as the snow leopards move to the highest peaks. We will explore the territory of snow leopard with the help of local experts. These local experts are the ones, who help to track them down for various documentaries. Our representative from the wildlife division will also be present with you, so that sighting becomes easier. So, go on this most challenging and unique wildlife expeditions with us. We conduct this expedition at Hemis National Park near Leh. There is a huge potential to sight and photograph this elusive big cat here.
