WildLife Tour in Ladakh
The animal species of Ladakh have shown an excellent ecological adaptation and flourished at an altitude where men can hardly breathe. Travellers find the wildlife tour in Ladakh interesting both in terms of ecological specialisation and their occurrence in the remote regions of rugged Ladakh. Ladakh possesses virtually no natural forests, though along riverbanks and valleys some greenery does exist. The lower mountain slopes are sparse but higher up, near the snow line, wild rose, willow and herbaceous plants have successfully colonized the slopes. This is the alpine zone. While soil, wind, precipitation and exposure are important determinants in the arrangement of specific life, the temperature differential due to altitude is by far the most important factor. Because of the decrease in the temperature, vegetation becomes more sparse and stunted as one ascends the slopes.

Season For WildLife Tour In Ladakh: October - November
We tailor-make programs to allow your students to become familiar with the local Architecture, Medicine (amchi), Museums, Religion and Culture of the places they visit. This can be achieved by meeting with local tour operators. All contacts and coordination occur in advance to allow you to approve of the programs. A great way to understand local traditions is to take an active part in local festivities and ceremonies. We hunt out important events for your students to participate in during their trip. These tours are a non-profit WildLife Tour in Ladakh. In this extremely harsh environment, the untrained eye would hardly see any evidence of wildlife at all. Animals, which have adapted to the rigorous conditions, however, thrive on the minimal vegetation, poor shelter, rocky terrain and bitter cold. Nevertheless, most creatures, notably the ungulates, do migrate to lower regions in winter while others, like the brown bear and marmots, choose to hibernate.
Yak or Wild Ox (Ladakhi: dong)
Yak(dong)-a wild ox is the largest animal found in Ladakh. and is definitely more imposing than its placid domestic counterpart. Immensely shaggy and weighing a tone it has curved horns whose tips can be as wide apart as 90 cm. and measure 76 cm. over the curves. It can easily be distinguished by its long black hair, which is tinged with grey at the muzzle. Spending its summers at a height above 6,000 meters, in winter it moves in herds to the lakes, marshes and lower valleys.of students and universities. Ladakh not only offers a great chance to study nature at its undisturbed best but also to enrich the mind and body in a number of ways, through its culture and tradition. Largest and most magnificent of wild sheep in the whole world, it is also called the Great Tibetan sheep (Ovis ammon). Roughly 200 of these are found in the extreme eastern portion of Ladakh. The horns of the Nyan measure up to 145 cm. and the animal normally remains at a great height, rarely descending to a level below 4,500 meters.
