SNOW LEOPARD EXPEDITION – A WORLD WITHIN A WORLD

The Spiti Valley is a desert mountain valley located high in the Himalayan mountains in the north-eastern part of the Indian state of Himachal Pradesh. The name “Spiti” means “The Middle Land”, i.e. the land between Tibet and India. It possesses a distinctive Buddhist culture similar to that found in the nearby Tibet Autonomous Region and the Ladakh region of India. The valley and surrounding region is one of the least populated regions in India and is the gateway to the northernmost reaches of the nation. Along the northern route from Manali, Himachal Pradesh or Keylong via the Rohtang Pass or Kunzum Pass respectively, the valley lies in the North East of the Indian hill state of Himachal Pradesh, and forms part of the Lahaul and Spiti district. Spiti valley is a research and cultural centre for Buddhists. Highlights include Key Monastery and Tabo Monastery, one of the most famous monasteries in the world and a favourite of Dalai Lama. Enigmatic, Magnificent and Rare! Many words have been used to describe the Snow Leopard and all of them ring true, but none are perhaps as appropriate as “Elusive”. The spectacular and rugged terrain that Snow Leopard calls home plays a large role in making this “Ghost of the Himalayas” so exceptionally hard to find.
To some, searching for a Snow Leopard is akin to trying to find a unicorn. There is so little known about this mystifying cat, and so few of them left living in such a harsh and inaccessible environment that their existence has been witnessed by only a handful of people. Over the last few years, thanks to time, research, local will, determination and a good helping of luck sightings of this “grey ghost” have increased.
What makes this expedition exclusive is that you will have once in a lifetime opportunity to spot the cat in its wild habitat. You would also get a chance to test your fitness and enjoy the winter landscapes of Spiti valley.
While the main focus of this tour is to experience the utter thrill of seeing a Snow Leopard in its natural surroundings, you would also stand a chance for encounters with Himalayan Ibex, Blue Sheep, Red Fox, Golden Eagle, Tibetan Wolf, Himalayan Griffon vultures and even the Lynx.
