Customized two weeks private tour - In the Footsteps of the Snow Leopard

2011/01/01 - 0000/00/00:

Tour strart in Bishkek. Period: March, April, September, October and November

This expedition will try to reveal some of the most unique mammals to be seen in Northern Himalaya. Unique mammals are on our target list: Argali, Siberian Ibex, Wolf and of course – great birds. Of course we also hope of watching one of the most mythic animals on globe – the Snow Leopard, but as we at present doesn’t deal with purse Snow Leopard Expeditions as its simply to difficult to make agreements with the Snow Leopard.

Miksture possess one of the world’s highest success rates when it comes to finding a wild Snow Leopard, at present June 2011 our success rate is still more than 75% however we include count only-heard Snow leopards as well (it’s more difficult and rare to hear a Snow leopard than seeing them…).

All details are fixed and ready. We have negotiated with the people that are able to give Miksture access to one of the most unique areas in Kyrgyzstan. On this expedition we travel deep into the heart of the Snow Leopards kingdom, and with the expertise of our team our chances for an encounter are raised from virtually impossible to reasonable.
