I had the great good fortune to hear about Voygr Expeditions from Brad Josephs, who was our head guide on the trip I took in February. We camped for eight nights at an altitude of just below 4,000 meters in Hemis National Park in Ladakh. Nights were a bit frosty, but Voygr's campsite was superbly equipped and our stay was very comfortable with a few unexpected luxuries! Along with Brad our group was led by Behzad Larry, the CEO of Voygr, and a large group of local support staff including the best snow leopard spotters in India. We were privilged to spot many leopards along with a number of other species of mammals and birds. I learned so much from Behzad and all of the guides, and left with a deep and lasting impression of the warmth and kindness of the people of Ladakh and of their passion for snow leopards and the mountain ecosystem that is their only home. For anyone interested in snow leopards or seeking an exceptional adventure, I would highly recommend that you contact Voygr.

I did this adventure in february 2020 together with my father, who is a passionate wild life photographer.

We liked Leh and I really loved visiting a monestery for the morning prayers. It deeply toched me and it was very intersting.

I am so thankful to Behzad, Brad, Kenrab, Dzordje, Rashid,.... the whole staff, who was taking such a great care of us and made all of this possible for us. It was all very well organised. And I managed to learn so much from you. About snow leopards, about Hemis, about conservetion, enviroment. Of course VOYGR wants to offer you a nice holiday and some nice seeings of snow leopards. But what I truelly loved is that these people are dedicated to what they do. You can see and feel its not just a job - its a passion, its an ispiration and vocation to make life better for the animals, for the village people, for nature. We really enjoyed some nice seeing of a snow leopard. Once we spent a whole afternoon watching a mum and her two cubes. It was so amazing! The spotters did a great job too so we could also see blue sheeps, golden eagles, wolves, lammergeyers
VOYGR always had an open ear for our individual needs and personal interests. And I was so happy being able to go for hiking with a guide anything I wanted.

The camp in Hamis national park is really nice and comfortable as possible for the conditions there. I didnt miss anything at all in our sleeping tent, toilet or wash room. Our "social tent" where we could sit together, chat, have meels was cozy. Food was always great. I loved the apple cider ritual every late afternoon for warming up after going to the field trying to spot some interesting animals.

For anyone who is interested in snow leopards, who is looking for a adventure I would highly recommend VOYGR.

Behzad and his team planned everything to perfection, worked tirelessly, and offered comfort that one can only dream of. The team of spotters would leave at the crack of dawn to begin the work of spotting leopards. Sonam always had plan B if leopards decided to take a day off and did not want to be seen. Rashid worked behind the scenes to took care of every detail. I will plan future trips without hesitation.

An absolutely fabulous experience. We went to the snow leopard camp in April 2023. Even though we were the only guests at the time, we had a staff of up to 10 people helping us. The camp and lodges were extremely nice, the entire staff very helpful. We had 7 days in camp. Spotters would get up early every morning and head out (you had the option of going with them if desired). If they spotted leopards, they would contact the camp and you would hurriedly set off. We spent 2 entire days watching leopards (from a distance, powerful binoculars). The first day was a mother and 2 cubs, the second day a male joined them. On the other days we did hikes, visited homestays and monasteries, saw blue sheep, etc. The meals were very good and often brought to us at the spotting locations. The days that we stayed in Leh were also great. The Grand Dragon is a very nice hotel. But best of all was our guide, Rigzin. She was extremely friendly and attentive, and I feel as though we made a lifelong friend. One final note - after the trip, we received 2 beautiful pictures of the snow leopards from our trip, sent by Behzad, which are now framed and hanging in my den.

I was lucky enough to book a snow leopard expedition with Behzad and simply can't say enough good things. Behzad's passion for snow leopards, his true love of Hemis National Park, his desire to improve and expand the experiences he has for his guests, and the team that surrounds you on his expeditions is truly extraordinary. The joy, excitement, passion and caring that every member of the team displayed was above any expectation I could have set going in to this trip. If you're considering a snow leopard expedition look no further than Behzad and Voygr!

Our trip to Ladakh with Voygr was unbelievable. This is ecotourism done to perfection; small groups, local guides, invested in conservation, the list goes on. Brad, Dorjay, Rigzin, Stanzin, Rashid, Aziz, Behzad, Biscuit, and every single member of their crew went out of their way to make every aspect of our trip as good as they possibly could. We observed Snow Leopards on 5 separate days on top of getting to witness the amazing terrain and being immersed in the local culture. I can’t imagine ever doing anything in the future as amazing as watching wild Snow Leopard behavior, including feeding (once so close that we could easily watch with the naked eye), along with seeing Snow Leopard scrapes & scent marks. The facilities at camp were great, the food was delicious and never ending, and they even brought in an awesome local band to play on our final night in the field. Behzad was meticulous in organizing our whole trip, which was delayed more than once due to COVID. He also arranged our extension to Nagarahole National Park in Southern India, with attention to detail like booking us all window seats on out flight out of Leh so we could all get a great look as we flew over the Himalayas. The impact Voygr is having on Snow Leopard and the local that live along side them is immense given the size of the organization, and will be the standard that I will measure similar outfits to in the future.

We visited Ladakh to see snow leopards with Behzad Larry and Voygr expeditions in March 2022. We saw 7 snow leopards, including a mating pair that we were able to observe for several hours. Behzad and his entire team are very passionate about their work. From exceptional (and warm) accommodations in below freezing temperatures to a wide variety of delicious food, we were very well taken care of. When we were watching snow leopards in the wild, meals would be brought to us, so that we would not lose any opportunity to see these magnificent animals. Behzad is also dedicated to conservation of rare wildlife. I hope there are more people like him, it would increase the chances that our children and grandchildren will get to experience the same magic that we did.

It's easy and totally warranted to lavish superlatives in this review of my experiences with Voygr Expeditions, Ladakh in January of 2023. One could conclude that it sounds too good to be true. I assure you that it is impossible for me to overstate the level of satisfaction I feel for every aspect of my Himalayan adventure with Voygr.
Every single detail of the entire excursion was seamlessly accounted for, allowing me to be totally receptive to the countless cultural, natural and spiritual interactions that the Himalayas afford in myriad abundance. Lodging accommodations were all top notch and remarkably comfortable, most notably the LUNGMAR base camp where I slept fitfully every night. Meals were all delightfully diverse deliciously prepared. Staff, many of whom I now consider friends, were exceptionally and authentically warm and accommodating. Guides, spotters and trackers were lifelong professionals, literally the absolute best this region has to offer. They were essential to maximizing upon the opportunities to explore this spectacular ecosystem.
Not only would I like to return to Ladakh with Voygr, but am entertaining prospects to join them in Mongolia and Kyrgyzstan.
If your intention is to make the most of the experiences available in High Asia, Voygr Expeditions is the gold standard choice.

We spent 10 days in Behzad's camp in Shang in a totally immersive Snow Leopard experience.

From the day we arrived in Leh, Behzad and Sonam made us feel so cared for as we acclimatized to the altitude in Ladakh. After 3 days we arrived at the "camp" (if you can call it that - more like a 5-star property in the middle of the mountains). There are two phenomal suite-style "tents" (again, a loose definition) that we stayed in that each have their own bathrooms inside; this was so nice given the temperatures outside.

From morning to evening, Rigzin (camp manager), and crew were SO attentive to all of our requests. We had 4 different types of egg orders each morning, 6 different tea and coffee orders, and each ask was met with so much kindness and care. We felt at home on this trip, which made leaving even more difficult.

As far as Snow Leopards, we had 8 sightings. The first was a mating pair and for days afterwards we saw a single leopard in the mountains. As we sat out for days, Behzad's team brought us hot chai, biscuits, breakfast, lunch, and so much more to make us feel so comfortable. We even had beds to sleep on!

Needless to say we cannot wait for our next trip with Voygr!

Incredible visit to Ladakh to see the snow leopards with Behzad and his team who provided an unparalleled experience. Employing the best trackers in the field, alongside incredible Ladakhi hospitality, each days trekking for the Snow Leopard was an absolute thrill. Accommodations are without a doubt the best in the area for an expedition such as this - no comparison. Tents were incredibly warm and cozy, hot water for showers and food was delicious. Somehow in an extreme weather environment, Behzad has created an oasis of comfort. Staff is beyond helpful and everyone is completely dedicated to the experience of glimpsing the Snow Leopard. In the end, Voygr has the best spotters so they are best chance you have at spotting the Snow Leopard. Highly recommended!
