9 Days, 1200 kms, tracking the snow leopard in the breathtaking Spiti Valley in February. We’re so jealous we can’t even begin to describe how we’re feeling giving this one away. Personally, I’m a bit obsessed with leopards of any kind, and a chance to spot the elusive snow leopard is a rare opportunity indeed. The trip is scheduled from 11th – 19th February 2017.

Spiti (a local name that means the middle land) is desert mountain valley in the Himalayan range. Located across Tibet and India, it’s a breathtaking terrain. It’s main draw however, could be likened to the Yeti. The snow leopard is a gorgeous, majestic creature that pads gently across the snow to Kibber National Park and Pin Forest Reserve at this time of year. The Road Less Travelled will take you on a memorable journey though one of the last virgin outposts of the country. It’s the only place you needn’t trek to spot the Snow Leopard in its natural habitat. As you wander across these picturesque, remote villages, you’ll visit ancient monasteries, interact with the simple and warm locals and imbibe their unique cuisine and culture. With night temperatures dipping to -20 degrees, What wouldn’t normally be an easy journey is rendered comfortable and luxurious by the well-equipped team at The Road Less Travelled. Authentic homestays, well-informed spotters, guides, cooks and helpers, you’ll want for nothing on this experience. Here’s a glimpse at what you’ll be seeing:

  • This is incredible !! I’ve done it all and keeping my fingers and toes crossed ! While I absolutely LOVE seeing animals in the wild I was talking to someone the other day about Snow Leopards and now to see this ! Gorgeous photos btw 🙂

  • I’ve experienced the jungles of India extensively. I’ve lost count after my 120th safari but I’ve never seen the Himalayas before. Seeing a snow leopard has been a childhood dream of mine. Would kill for this trip.

  • Awesome one! Snow Leopards are majestic, and this Trip will be far more than just Traveling. Lucky and Brave are those, who get to chase this trail, although cold weather could be quite a challenge. Hands up to the Campaign, hope to win this one for the absolute love of Wild life and Snow 🙂 Cheers!

  • I devoured Matthiessen’s Snow Leopard, tear through Seven Years in Tibet annually and adore the Buddhist and Hindi cultures. Despite all this I’ve not made it to the region, the region that really set my passion for cultural and travel journalism.

    This would be an immense honor. Really awesome that you’re working to offer such an opportunity!

  • This is an amazing contest. My best friend and I have dreamt of seeing the snow leopards in their own habitats and this will really be a dream come true. I’m praying that this dream will come true <3
