India - the land that evokes flights of imagination and curiosity, a canvas of spectacle and color ruled by a succession of native kingdoms, and often overrun and inhabited by invading armies of Central Asian origin, followed by the Mughals and finally the British. Transformation has been never ending and the results are deeply and visibly etched in today’s milieu.

As winter sets into the Trans-Himalayan region, we cast our sights on Ladakh in search of the elusive ghost of the Himalayas – Shaan in Ladakhi a.k.a. the snow leopard.

Like the tiger, it’s a territorial feline. Watching two snow leopards fighting ferociously with one another is a once-in-a-lifetime moment — a true collectible for a wildlife lover or photographer’s treasure trove. But regardless of whether you capture it with the naked eye or with your lens, this feline is captivating. As it raises its head to look at you, you’re transformed.

Ladakh, in the Indian Himalaya, is one of the best areas to see the elusive snow leopard and it is from here that we set out. It is not only about the snow leopards as there are a host of other animals and birds to see, apart from the scenery and getting to know more about the people that live here.
