Snow Leopard ENCOUNTER

This epic encounter will take you on a journey like no other – the quest to find and photograph the Ghost of the Himalayas – the Snow Leopard.

We’ve crafted our snow leopard journeys to deliver a lovely combination of wildlife, culture, and history. The LungMār – our camp for the bulk of this experience – has great access to both wilderness and Ladakhi cultural treasures. We’re within a 40-minute drive of three major Tibetan Buddhist monasteries, a few warm and welcoming Ladakhi homesteads, and prime snow leopard landscape. An ideal setting for a snow leopard expedition that combines the very best of what Ladakh has to offer in the company of the very best tracking team.

Most importantly, the LungMār’s veteran team of highly-awarded snow leopard conservationists, trackers, and guides have over two decades of field time and international experience across snow leopard habitats. 

This is an experience that will literally change your life and it is simply something that every person should have at the top of their wishlist. I hope that you can join us as we trek the grey Himalayan ghost.



Arrive into New Delhi, India, and transfer to your hotel for a good night’s rest.



Board a flight to Leh where you will spend the day indoors, resting, and acclimatizing to the high-altitude conditions.



After spending the first day acclimatizing to Leh’s altitude of 11,550 feet, we will do some easy sightseeing on the second day to get a feel for the rich history of the region.


LungMār Camp

We depart from Leh and head into Snow Leopard territory and will arrive mid-morning at our home for the next week, the LungMār Camp.


LungMār Camp

Full days at the LungMār Camp searching for snow leopards, experiencing traditional local culture, and more. The camp is incredibly well located, has the very best snow leopard trekking team and will be your home for the next 6 days.
