With Nomadic Expeditions, travelers can embark on a quest for the snow leopard during a 16-day small group adventure Nov. 13–28. This is the first tour of its kind, and similar excursions are planned annually or on a private basis.


The trip is in conjunction with the field biologists of the World Wildlife Fund as a conservation project aimed at preserving the longevity of snow leopards, and the trip is based in a highly remote region of the Altai mountain range of Mongolia.


The itinerary includes unique, active adventures, perfect for travelers who thrive on off-the-beaten path expeditions in challenging conditions. Start in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia’s capital, visiting the Gandan Monastery and the Natural History Museum. Day two brings travelers to Hovd in Western Mongolia to spot the snow leopard in and around Jargalant Khairkhan Mountain, Ustyn Am Valley and Omno Uliastai Valley. Each day, guests will spend two to six hours hiking through habitats and spend the nights in traditional ger dwellings with Mongolian nomadsas host families. At the end of the trip, the tour stops at Khar-Us Lake and Dorgon Steppe to rare animals, local folk singers and hoomii throat singing.
