Situated deep the Ladakh mountain range, 4300 metres up the side of a valley north of Indus, the village of Ulley is one of the most remote in India. Here, where less than 50 people live in a collection of homesteads, visitors travel from far and wide in the hope of seeing the ever-elusive, ever-enthralling Snow Leopard in its natural habitat. This is one of the best locations to spot these smallish but majestic creatures, where, along with Himalayan wolves and ibex, they live peacefully. Nicknamed the ‘grey ghost’, this cat species is one of the rarest on earth. Among the rugged, lunar-like landscapes, travellers will be able to enjoy an otherworldly experience which makes for breathtaking photography and incredible memories.
