Dream come true for me.. I never thought that spotting this Beauty is so tough, but really is a tough terrain to trek and along with that the Weather( -16 degrees to -20 degrees) ,High altitude(4200 mtrs above sea level) and climbing 60 degree inclination ufff thrilling and Chilling Experience.
For the First Half an hour i couldn't make out where is the leopard... when i first reached the place (ie mountain) from where we could see the snow leopard i fell on the ground and relaxed for 15min bcoz we trekked some 8 km from Rumbak Village to reach this place.. then when i saw through my camera nothing i am able to make out... after half an hour when it made little movement of the head then i spotted this Gray ghost.
We spotted this Gray Ghost in our last day of our trip felt very lucky.
