What an exciting trip it was to go see the Snow Leopards in Leh. I was not sure what to expect but what I experienced far exceeded it. We were able to see 7 snow leopard sightings. On top of the beautiful scenery was the wonderful staff Voygr they tended to all of our needs. I highly recommend going on a trip with Voygr Behzad and team understand service

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.

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.

We started out on this journey a little apprehensive, as the optimal time to see the snow leopard is the COLD winter. The type of COLD experienced in that part of the world is something that we had never sensed living in a tent. But we were eager to get a glimpse of the illusive snow leopard in its habitat.
We spent a total of 13 days in Leh and Hemis. The first two days were spent acclimatizing to the altitude after which we were transported to our "luxury tents" in the middle of the most beautiful setting amongst the mountains. The outside temperature was as cold as expected. But inside the tent it was warm and cozy. The hot water showers, the beautiful carpets and the comfortable beds was something that we had not expected in a tented facility. The food was another surprise, as they catered to all our dietary needs and more. The food was plentiful, delicious and prepared with a lot of care. We had three course meals even when we were away from camp waiting to spot a snow leopard. They sent out beds for us to sit on or lie down on while we waited.
We were successful in sighting the snow leopard 6 times. Our first sighting was a mating. It was an absolute thrill and one that we will never forget. The second was a kill. We did not witness the kill but saw the leopard by the kill. The next few were of the snow leopard stocking blue sheep.
The team that Behzad has put together is world class. We went to see the snow leopard apprehensive of the COLD. We returned, WARM from the experience not only because we saw the snow leopard but because of the kindest, friendliest and whole-hearted hospitality that we have ever experienced in all our travels. It was better than a 5 star experience and one that we would like to experience again !!!.

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!

My wife and I had a dream trip up to Leh/Hemis National Park with Voyagr Expeditions and Behzad and were lucky enough to see several snow leopards! We even saw a mum and 2 cubs playing around in snow from a few hundred meters!
Behzad and his team are renowned for being the world’s best snow leopard trackers. When you combine this with the best spotting scopes in the industry (Swarovski BTX scopes with 50x magnification and 1.7x extender to 85x), you get (basically) guaranteed snow leopard sightings!
The camp provides by far the best accomodation possible for snow leopard tracking anywhere on earth. My wife and I stayed in the Shan dome suite. It was beautifully appointed with wooden floorboards, stone bathroom and a high pressure hot shower! The bed was huge and very comfortable. The rooms were very well heated - my wife and I live on a tropical island hate the cold yet were happy walking around the room in underwear.

We extended our snow leopard trip with side trips to Ranthambore (tigers), Jawai (leopards) and Rajasthan. Voyagr and Behzad were amazing and put together a perfect trip! The drivers and guides Behzad chose were fantastic as were the hotel recommendations!

All in all there is a reason Voyagr has a perfect 5* rating on TripAdvisor… We certainly plan to book all future remote holidays with Behzad!

This adventure absolutely exceeded my expectations. It was a unique combination of being totally in nature with many upscale comforts. The staff was exceptional, they anticipated your every need and were especially accommodating. I have such respect for everyone who made this a trip to remember. I really never thought about conservation before but this was a introduction to a group of individuals who are completely committed. It was inspirational.

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.

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.
