Day 1 Arrive New Delhi

Get private transfer to Delhi Airport. Board a flight to Leh over stunning Himalayan scenery. Met on arrival in Leh and transfer to hotel.

At an altitude of 3,500m (11,500ft) Leh is the capital of the Himalayan kingdom of Ladakh and the starting point for much of the trekking done in the Indian Himalayas. You will have the rest of the day free to relax and adjust to the altitude and climate. If you want then you can opt for a local market visit in the evening.

Day 3 Leh

Another day for acclimatisation and sightseeing. Today visit the extraordinary Thiksey Monastery, the largest buddhist monastrey in Ladakh built on top of a hill with excellent views.

Day 4 Leh – Himalayan Valley

Today, you will have your first attempt at looking for snow leopard as you drive to the small Himalayan Valley. En route, you can stop at the frozen river of Chadar which is used by the locals to travel to the reserved Zanskari villages. Depending on conditions there may be a chance to walk along the frozen river and look for the Ladakh urial sheep. In the afternoon, you can begin to search the Himalayan Valley for snow leopards as well as urial, Asiatic ibex and Himalayan wolf.

Day 5 In Himalayan Valley

A full day is devoted for looking snow leopards and other wildlife in valley of Himalayas. Based on the current survey results there are thought to be between 8 and 10 different snow leopards in this area. Trackers will be out throughout the day searching the mountain ridges and following tracks in search of the cats and other wildlife such as Himalayan wolf and Asiatic ibex.

During the months of January, February and March the snow leopards found here tend to become more visible as they spend more time walking ridges calling and searching for mates. Also snowfall at this time can bring their prey lower into the valleys and also makes the tracking of their prints easier.

Day 6 In Himalayan Valley

Another full day to search the Himalayan Valley for snow leopards, wolves, ibex and Ladakh urial. The birdlife in the valley is not particularly diverse in the winter, but some stunning mountain species such as lammergier, golden eagle, Himalayan griffon vulture, Himalayan snowcock and robin accentor can all be seen.

Even with an professional team of local trackers finding snow leopards in this gigantic landscape is a challenge. This is why having as long a stay here as possible will maximise your chances. Please note that some short walks on uneven (sometimes snowy) terrain may be required to track the leopards. There will also by long periods of scanning from good viewpoints with binoculars and telescopes.

Day 7 In Himalayan Valley

One more day seeking for snow leopards and other wildlife. The snow leopards here also share their territory with the impressive Tibetan wolf and these fluffy canids can often be seen in similar locations to the leopards.

Day 8 In Himalayan Valley

A different day discovering the zone for snow leopards and other wildlife. Please note that patience will be required while local trackers scan the mountain points for signs. When a snow leopard is sited it may be needed to drive and then walk some distance to view the cat but all walks can be done at your own pace.
