Living at high altitudes in an extreme climate, its thick silver coat keeps it warm while its long tail helps steady it as it races down steep mountain slopes in search of prey.

Ladakh Eco Trips was established by Tashi Tundup with the support of renowned National Geographic photographer Steve Winterwww.stevewinterphoto.com and photographer Dhritiman Mukherji , Dahritiman .com. Tashi who grew up with wild animals for friends, hail from Karsha in the Zanskar region Ladakh, When he returned to Zanskar after graduating from Jammu University , he was saddened to see that wildlife in the region was on the brink of extinction. Being aware of the inextricable links between wildlife and its role in the survival of the local , he formalized a plan to start organizing wildlife and cultural trips to boost the livelihood of the local, introduce travellers to the real Ladakh and preserve the fast dwindling wildlife. Thus was born Ladakh Eco Trips.
He started his operation with Zanskar, which the government had opened for tourist then, As a result many travellers were able to experience the magnificence of the native animals of Zanskar including the majestic snow leopard, the rare Ibex, and the elusive wolf
With success of the Zanskar chapter and bombarded with request of new and old friends, in 2008 Ladakh Eco Trips expanded to other region of Kashmir and Himachal. It started organizing remote regions of Changthang, where people had the unique experience living with Changpas in their ancient rebo tents.
