Why we like it
Firstly we have an expert guide, an essential component of a successful snow leopard trip, who has a good relationship with the local community, which is equally important. Local shepherds and farmers will know where snow leopards have been most recently spotted and thus we can take full advantage of hundreds of local pairs of eyes and ears on the ground. Secondly, this trip supports conservation in the area, including a burgeoning homestay scheme and livestock-farmer support. We must have got something right as all our clients travelling in 2019 had sightings of snow leopard.
In addition, to give our clients the most up-to-date information, the Steppes Travel team regularly join our group tours. Our Product Director, Jarrod Kyte, joined our snow leopard group tour, read about his snow leopard adventures and sightings here.
