Hemis National Park is a high altitude national park, which is home to the exotic Snow Leopards and some rare birds. In winters, these wild cats and other animals come down from their hideout and can therefore be spotted on this trek. This trek is a combination of many experiences in one. We get to explore Leh with snow-covered mountains in the background, life and challenges of village people in winters, the Buddhist culture while visiting the monasteries along with spotting Snow Leopard Trek Rumbak Ladakh, the blue sheep, Ibex and many more.
