Ladakh, the land of high passes, is a region in the northernmost stretches of India with blurred boundaries of culture and traditions between neighbouring countries like Tibet and China. In the past, the region’s strategic location at the crossroads of several trade routes was a lifeline for its people, which tourism today provides. Ladakh’s tranquil, turquoise lakes, adventure sports like river rafting and trekking, and the numerous Buddhist monasteries, high altitude wildlife, make it among the most unique destinations in India. This snow leopard tours itinerary takes you to the wilderness of Ulley and Chuu valley, an excellent Ibex country. This area has only recently been developed for Snow Leopard tracking and has quickly gained a reputation not just for the high numbers of snow leopards but as one of the best areas to see Ibex, Urial, Wolf, Himalayan fox, Himalayan griffon vultures and golden eagles.

India is a study in contrasts; bustling cities that bear the legacies of once-glorious empires, a patchwork of farmlands and hamlets fringing lush forests, destinations steeped in history making their inexorable way towards modernity. A land that is more than history, diverse in geography, a land of peace and plenty that brought empires and colonies to its shores, a nation that throbs with the stories of the past paving the way to a bright future.

Highlights of this fabulous tour include retracing India’s Mughal and colonial eras on a historic trail through Delhi; reliving Mowgli’s days in the Kanha and Pench forests with glimpses of the incredible wildlife that featured in the Jungle Book films, and viewing Central India’s wildlife on jeep safaris and/or canoe on the Denwa river on the fringes of Satpura National Park. We shall step back in time on a trail of Lucknow’s landmarks that attest to its regal past, and watch the blush of sunrise over the Taj.

Mahal – one of the world’s seven wonders. We’ll walk on the wild side at Ranthambore National Park – a wildlife refuge set against a backdrop of waterholes and ruined ramparts; witness the legacy of Jaipur’s feudal rulers with a sightseeing trail through the ‘pink city’ in the state of Maharashtra and visit the unique 5th Century monolithic rock-cut temple at Ellora and Ajanta’s painted frescoes dating back to the 2nd Century BC.

For an exclusive glimpse into India, this itinerary offers a perfect mix of history, culture and wildlife – a chance to explore the landmarks of well-known cities like Delhi, Jaipur, Agra and Lucknow to retrace their history, trail through lush forests of Kanha, Pench, Satpura and Ranthambore in search of the tiger and discover a rare legacy in stone at Aurangabad’s ancient Buddhist rock-cut and frescoed caves.
