Tour overview

COMING SOON - Please contact us to register your interest and we will let you know when more details are available.

We plan to offer two options - the first trip will involve camping for approximately 10 nights to maximise on our chances of finding Snow Leopards.  There will then be a
second departure staying in homestays (so more comfortable) but again focussing on finding Snow Leopards.
