Snow Leopard & Pallas’s Cat Expedition (Ladakh)

Welcome to the heart of Ladakh, a land where rugged mountains carve through the sky and elusive predators roam in the shadows. Our expedition offers a rare opportunity to delve into the realm of two enigmatic felines: the elusive Snow Leopard and the mysterious Pallas’s Cat.

In the remote corners of Ladakh, where jagged peaks pierce the heavens and valleys lie shrouded in mystery, we embark on a journey to encounter these captivating creatures in their natural habitat. Join us as we tread lightly through the pristine wilderness, guided by expert trackers and conservationists who share a deep reverence for these majestic cats.

Through patient observation and unwavering determination, we seek to witness the grace and beauty of the Snow Leopard as it prowls through the snow-capped peaks, and unravel the secrets of the Pallas’s Cat as it navigates the rocky slopes with stealth and precision.

This expedition is not merely a journey into the wild, but a pilgrimage to honor the resilience of these iconic species and the fragile ecosystems they inhabit. Together, let us embark on an unforgettable adventure to uncover the untamed spirit of Ladakh and the mesmerizing world of its elusive feline inhabitants.

What to Wear: Prepare for cold climates by bringing thick jackets and trekking boots.

Comfort & Eating Out: Consider requesting less spicy food if needed. If you have food allergies, please inform us in advance so we can advise on suitable options. Consume food in small quantities, always freshly cooked and served hot, as your stomach may not be accustomed to the spices and oil used in preparation. When ordering cold drinks, request no ice in the glass. Bottled water and drinks must have unbroken seals when purchased. We recommend labeling your bottles.

Others: Cell phone connectivity may be inconsistent while on the road between destinations and varies among operators. Prepaid mobile numbers do not work in the UT of Ladakh.

The Fine Print: While the itinerary is the part to dream, over here are the Terms and Conditions to ensure our trip runs smoothly. Please read carefully.

Disclaimers: We cannot accept responsibility for flight delays or lost luggage; once air tickets are booked, the airline’s conditions apply. Please be patient during airport formalities. Our team assumes no responsibility for loss or damage to property or baggage, injury, illness, death, or any damages or claims arising directly or indirectly from accidents, delays, transport failures, strikes, wars, terrorism, uprisings, or acts of God over which we have no control.
