What we love about this journey:

  • The isolated barren wilderness of Ladakh, with the snow-capped Himalaya Mountains, cobalt lakes and ever-changing sand dunes, reminds you that you are on the “Roof of the World”.
  • Visit the Snow Leopard Conservancy and view the efforts made by the local authorities, and community, to conserve this endangered species.
  • Explore the Thiksey monastery, the most beautifully situated monastery in Ladakh, perched high on a hill above the Indus River.
  • Set out in search of the elusive snow leopard, and explore three valleys, which are also home to other unique wildlife including ibex, Tibetan antelope, blue sheep, shapo, marmot and the Tibetan hare. Venture out on foot, and by 4×4 vehicle, and gain insight into the region’s fascinating folklore, customs and traditions.
  • Enjoy the company of one of the most seasoned snow leopard guides.
  • Travel to the ancient Alchi Gompa monastery, located on the south bank of the Indus River. The heart of the monastery complex is the Dukhang, where the monks worship and perform their ceremonies. The complex boasts huge statues of Buddha, and elaborate wood carvings in a style similar to European baroque.
