We are exited to announce you an adventurous snow leopard watching and photographing tour whilst visiting some spectacular landscape of Mongolia, one of the very few true wilderness area of the world.
Snow Leopard watching and photographing tour (7-10 days)
Snow leopards inhabit a large geographic range and are widespread but distribution is spotted throughout the high mountain ranges of Central Asia. This includes the entire Himalayan mountain system as well as areas in Bhutan, Nepal, China, Mongolia and Russia. Steep, rocky and broken terrain are the preferred bedding areas for the cat, specially on or near by land from edge close to natural vegetation. In summer they live generally at altitudes 3000 and 4500 meters. In winter they may migrate to lower elevations of 900 meters, following their preferred prey.
Our time will be focused on both birding and mammal watching with a strong focus on trying to watch Snow leopard. The best season for watching the mountain ghost is cold seasons in lower elevation. Also, while we are observing the cat in mating season, we can hear cat calls for breeding and the other cat responds in the high mountains.
