My girlfriend and I are thinking of visiting Hemis NP around early September. We would like to do some mountain trekking in the NP, hopefully to see the Snow Leopard. Yes we understand that we will have to be extremely lucky to see one but we still want to see the NP and trek too.
Does anyone know if you can just rock up to Leh and book treks with the intent of snow leopard viewing from there? Or would we have to book that sort of thing in advance through some of the online companies. We would prefer to go with local companies with local guides. Also if anyone knows of the prices for that kind of thing that would be great to know as we are backpackers.
