Went on a wonderful snow leopard tracking trip to the himalayas last year. Winter in ladakh does require planning and research. Had a great trip leader along with spotters and support staff. We were fortunate to spot snow leopards on the second day itself, quite close to the base camp. The spotters used to scout the nearby ranges daily and keep us informed about any animal movement. It was good to interact with the trip leader and talk about his research work, as well as discuss about various species in the himalayas. A must-do trip for wildlife enthusiasts and those who love the mountains!
I was fortunate enough to go on the Snow Leopard trip with the Ghumna team at the beginning of 2017 and can honestly say that it was by far the most rewarding trip I have ever been on. Firstly, to have the opportunity to spend so much time in the central beauty of the Himalayas is extraordinary and breathtaking, but to also get the opportunity to witness first-hand the majestic Snow Leopard in its habitat (which we did), is the icing on top of an already delicious cake. The trip was well organised and very enjoyable and I would definitely recommend this trip to anyone in the future.
Fantastic and friendly! Doing admirable work. Have a huge wealth of information and experience of the Himalayas, its people and its ecosystems.
