Searching for snow leopards in LadakhLadakh, India

Nicknamed the ‘grey ghost of the Himalayas’, your chances of seeing a snow leopard in the wild are pretty rare, but an expedition with Reef and Rainforest could be your ticket to catching a glimpse of these majestic animals. On the ‘In Search of the Snow Leopards of Ladakh’ tour, you’ll travel to the Hemis National Park and Ulley Valley in the Indian Himalayas.

Although their camouflaged coat makes them hard to see, this wild and rugged terrain is known for its increasing numbers of the vulnerable cats, which recently came close to extinction. If you’re really lucky you may also spot the Tibetan wolf, Tibetan fox, Eurasian lynx and an array of birdlife on your travels.

 


The 14-day In Search of the Snow Leopards of Ladakh tour starts at US$4600.
