About the Tour

Journey into northern India in search of Bengal Tigers and Snow Leopards.

This 19 day adventure starts off with a day in Delhi before we head up to the high mountains of Ladakh. A few easy days of sightseeing initially allows us to gently acclimatize to the 10,000+ foot altitude of Leh. After that we head off on a short trek to a small village within the national park. Here we’ll be hosted in camps and village homes that will afford us warm shelter on cold winter nights and be our base as we explore the nearby area in search of the ghost of the mountains. If you prefer riding over hiking, a horse can be arranged for the 3 hour hike from the road-head to camp.

And I’ll be by your side every step of the way, inviting to enjoy everything this remarkable country has to offer while igniting your passion for photography with expert tips, techniques and guidance.
