Mongolia: In Search of the Snow Leopard

Trek through the western Mongolian countryside on this expeditionary adventure.

  • Mongolia's stunning, rugged vistas provide every traveler with ample opportunities to come away with striking photos.

  • Travel with WWF through Mongolia with expert trackers who will improve our chances of seeing a snow leopard.

  • Travel with WWF experts, conservationists and local nomads on guided hikes and drives as you learn about efforts to sustain threatened wildlife.

  • View the free roaming Takhi at Mongolia's Hustai National Park, a reserve re-establishing the native Takhi, or Przewalksi horses.

  • “Snow Leopards are a valuable indicator of environmental health. Their declining numbers is a sign that the places they live are also threatened.” -Tariq Aziz, Leader of WWF’s Living Himalayas Initiative.

The regal snow leopard has held a place in Buddhist mythology for millennia. 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. Just 2,000 or so remain in the remote high peaks of Central Asia and the Himalayas.
