After completing an exploratory trek through Dolpo in West Nepal in May I am returning next September to complete an ambitious circuit of the sacred Crystal Mountain, a highlight of Peter Matthiessen's trek in 1973 featured in his book The Snow Leopard. This specially devised itinerary includes days at the serene Phoksumdo Lake as well as exploring the rich Buddhist and Pon culture of this ancient Trans Himalayan land. We cross high passes that afford spectacular views that extend to the borderlands of Tibet. 

In Search of the Snow Leopard

An unrivalled opportunity to track the legendry snow leopard. Accompanied wildlife guides from the Snow Leopard Conservancy (Ladakh) the trip includes five days exploring the ridges and valleys above the Rumbak Valley as well as three days exploration of the remote Hemis Shukpachan Valley – both recognised for optimum snow leopard sightings. In addition the trip offers a rare glimpse into Ladakh’s rich cultural history while experiencing the raw, winter landscape of Ladakh. 

This trip is just starting point. If you wish to organise a private trip then I would be pleased to advise you. Note: a donation to support the Snow Leopard Conservancy (Ladakh) is required. .
