Snow Leopard Watching Tour
We are excited to announce you an adventurous mammal watching tour whilst visiting some spectacular landscapes of Mongolia, one of the very few true wilderness areas of the world.
Formerly this species was placed in the genus Uncia but it is now assigned to Panthera according to genetic analysis. It is most closely related to the tiger Panthera tigris, having diverged over two million years ago. The Snow leopard I assessed as Vulnerable because the global population is estimated to number more than 2500but fewer than 10000 mature individuals, and there is an estimated and projected decline of at least 10% over 22.62 years (3 generations). The range of the snow leopard extends from the Himalaya in the south, across the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau and the mountains of Central Asia to the mountains of southern Siberia in the north. Although Snow Leopards may occur in relatively flat or rolling areas, within their habitat, they favor steep, rugged and broken terrain and rocky outcrops. Mountain ridges, cliff edges, and well-defined drainage lines serve as common travel routes and sites for the deposition of signs, including scrapes, cat, and cent marks.
However, our time strong focus on trying to see snow leopard, we also possible to watch their free species argali sheep (Ovis ammon), Siberian ibex (Siberian ibex) and other species such as goitered or black-tailed gazelle (Gazella ubgutturosa), saiga antelope (Saiga tatarica) and Altai snowcock (Tetraogallus altaicus).
