Snow Leopard chasing Blue Sheep by Adam Riley
The “Grey Ghost of the Himalayas” is arguably the most coveted wildlife sighting on the planet. Peter Matthiessen’s tale of his ultimately unsuccessful search for the Snow Leopard in his eponymous book has for decades fuelled the desire to see this magnificent big cat. INDRI has since our foundation endeavored to offer our clients the best opportunity of fulfilling this dream. After extensive research and several exploratory trips, some more successful than others, we are finally proud to offer you the ULTIMATE opportunity for encountering a Snow Leopard in the wild!
This was more than effectively proven on our just completed October debut Snow Leopard tour to Hemis National Park in Ladakh, northwest India. Our intrepid group obtained a distant 90 minute long sighting of a Snow Leopard just 10 minutes walk from camp on our very first afternoon! On our third day we were thrilled to find a closer Snow Leopard early in the morning, again near to camp. We were even more enthralled to watch this magnificent cat for an entire day, culminating in us observing, filming and photographing the first ever recorded successful Snow Leopard hunt and kill! Our image of the month shows one of the first pictures in a sequence of over 100 images taken by Adam Riley of this exhilarating multi-directional chase of a young Blue Sheep, which was finally captured after two near misses by the Snow Leopard. Our tour produced two further sightings of Snow Leopard and numerous other highlights ranging from Ladakh Urial to daily Lammergeier flyovers and breathtaking high Himalayan scenery.
Our next Snow Leopard Expedition is scheduled from 18th February to 1st March 2014 (US$3150 per person sharing) and a few places still remain. February, although colder than October, offers even more reliable Snow Leopard sightings and no better opportunity exists anywhere in the world for obtaining a sighting of the mythical Grey Ghost. Our comfortable tented camp is an easy hike from a drop-off point near the town of Leh and no less than 11 Snow Leopards are resident in the 3 valleys surrounding camp (with an estimated 50-60 leopards in the park)! We will also provide another key element to ensure our success – one of the most experienced and talented Snow Leopard trackers and spotters in the world!
