“Trace the footprints of elusive snow leopard in the snow covered trails to Dolpo and imagine to encounter these beautiful creatures in their home- Snow Leopard Trek”

How would a person feel if he is told that he is going to join the human settlement surrounded by the virgin nature and wonderful creatures at the highest elevation of the world? It is not only hard to believe but it also seems something beyond our imagination. However this trip will make you realize that it is not only a day dream but a truth one can experience.

The place is really divine where everything is in its natural state untouched by any other depiction. Once a person is there his or her desire accelerates to know more about the place and its wonders.

This place is far behind from the reach of modern facilities and development. ‘Dolpa’ is geographically the largest district and one of the remotest districts that lies in the mid western part of Nepal. The varieties of flora and fauna in the unexploited vast nature are the delightful gifts of nature found in this province.

There used to be a time when the entry to the upper region of this district was restricted for the foreigners. However, this has changed and it’s open for all the tourists with especial permit for those who want to explore the nature at its best. Several explorers, investigators, experimenters have visited Dolpa for their own interests. Although many people have explored many parts of this region, there still are lots of natural wonders left to be explored.

The “Snow Leopardis one of the most stunning endangered big cats found in this Himalayan region. It is a carnivorous that is on the top of the food chain. It survives mostly on weaker animals like blue sheep, jharal, marmot, musk deer, etc. Though people take this animal to be dangerous and aggressive it is not, instead it is very shy in nature.

However the numbers of its prey is gradually decreasing forcing it to hunt the domestic animals when it doesn’t find its prey in the wild for several days. This annoys the local people and encourages them to attack this animal in order to protect their cattle.

Actually, this beauteous animal loves to remain far from other creatures because it is peace loving by nature. The threat of extinction of this beautiful creature is increasing due to the invasion of its habitat and diminishing numbers of its prey. The reason concludes: Increasing human population disturbs its habitat as they expand pastures for the survival of their domestic animals. Secondly, the chain of food habit that has to be controlled.

People hunt the prey of Snow Leopard, for their own interests which increase the scarcity. Hence the Snow Leopard is being enforced to encounter the domestic ones. Therefore, the disturbed situation in their habitat and food chain may lead the whole eco-system towards critical future. One can’t be satisfied unless he or she canvasses the creature that remains on the top of the eco-cycle and is the most beautiful wild creature, “Snow leopardthe Himalayan queen.

Ultimately, we have designed a tour package to fulfill such a desire to observe Snow Leopard, its natural actions in its native habitat. This expedition is fully service oriented that aims to provide excellent service to our respected clients and to support the protection program of this endangered beautiful creature by providing knowledge to the concerned people about the importance of conservation.
