Searching For Snow Leopards

From: £Contact us

Join wildlife photographer Nick Garbutt in Ladakh's remote Ulley Valley on a quest to photograph snow leopards and other Himalayan wildlife, including ibex, fox, bharal, Tibetan partridge and red-billed chough.

Engaging specialist local trackers from the Snow Leopard Conservancy maximises our chances of finding and photographing these elusive cats. Other Himalayan wildlife we hope to see, both by vehicle safari and on walks, include ibex, bharal, red fox, Tibetan partridge, and even wolf, 

Accommodation is in a comfortable lodge in the heart of Ulley Valley, which lies at the centre of three interlocking valleys amidst spectacular mountain scenery. This beautiful setting, combined with expert guidance and tips from Nick Garbutt, offers all the ingredients for a perfect wildlife photography trip.
