In search of snow leopards in India
We love to travel just in hopes of seeing wildlife in its' own environment. Of course, tigers were high on our priority list and, therefore, a trip to India was necessary. Upon checking out what was available, we discovered Natural World Safaris offered amazing trips that included tigers, temples and the Taj. Surprisingly, they also had the camping in the Himalayas to try to spot the elusive snow leopard!
Now that we are home and recalling our completed trip, the snow leopard portion was by far our favourite. We flew from Delhi to Leh. We spent a couple of nights in Leh, visiting a few of the monasteries and getting used to the altitude. Our hotel (the Grand Dragon) was warm and friendly with a beautiful view from our room of the Himalayas. All meals at the restaurant were a la carte and made to order. If you decide to go, order the momos at lunchtime so they can make them especially for you to have at dinnertime. They are a regional specialty and worth the trouble!
