dates are flexible. Purely the focus is on grey Ghost- that is Snow Leopard, apart from that other high Altitude rarities Like Fox,,Wolf and birding. Plan is spending 2 days in Leh Hotel to acclimatize and head For Hemis NP. 3 days each at Rumbak and Ulley with highly experienced Guide working solely as Guide for Snow Leopards for agency mainly Wildlife oriented ones. This is a budget trip

Another successful trip in search of Grey ghost in western ladakh. Total 11 days hectic journey from Leh-Ulley-Hemis sukhpachan-Satpose. Owing to less snowfall the background is almost barren. One will need to prepare at least 9 to 10 months prior to the date of journey. Many small tit bits needs to be tied up. Least but not last if I at the age of 61 can undergo through rugged terrain with low oxygen level I think time has come for the youngsters to visit the place.
This picture was taken by my co traveler Mr Prateek with his 500mm plus 1.4 TC.

Day 5: Acclimatisation Day!
300 m higher and we finally reached the Kang Yatse Base Camp at 5000m! On one hand, the campsite overlooked the whole valley we walked through, and on the other, we had the magnificent sight of Kang Yatse 1 (left) & 2 (right). This being my first peak, staring at it so closely (haha, as if) felt unreal! Post lunch, we headed up for an acclimatisation walk and reached a glacier point where we practiced with our crampons on. Judging by the amount of scree here, I fully stand by how treacherous this was! Luckily, the route we took on summit day was much better. Either that, or it was too dark to notice anything
This was my view of the two peaks from around 5300m.
After a day's rest, at 1:00am the next morning, we attempted to summit KY2. Due to bad weather we didn't summit but we did make it up to 6000m. Pretty psyched about that! :)

Day 4:
This campsite doesn't have a name but it's just 300m short of the Kang Yatse base camp. Getting here was a 700m continuous uphill stretch from Thochungtse! On the way we passed two glacial lakes, spotted Kang Yatse 3 & 4 and witnessed two Himalayan Griffon Vultures circling the air - one of my major highlights of the trek!
Here's a picture of our campsite facing Kang Yatse 2, while the other side overlooked the best sunset shadowing the entire valley we walked through!
