Day 1:

Shimla to Kalpa

  • The Snow Leopard Trek in Spiti Valley begins with a pickup from Shimla, and takes you to Kalpa, about 245 km away.
  • During the road trip, also enjoy driving along the gushing Sutlej River.

  • After reaching the town, enjoy a delicious dinner and refreshing sleep at a Homestay.

Day 2:

Kalpa to Kibber

  • Start early in the morning and after freshening up, head to Kibber. At an elevation of more than 4200 metres, Kibber is a small yet charming village.
  • It is surrounded by lush fields, and the houses here are built in the traditional Tibetan style of architecture.
  • The village lies in Spiti Valley, which is home to snow leopards. Besides these cats, a large number of other mammals and reptiles are also found in Kibber Wildlife Sanctuary.
  • On reaching Kibber, transfer to the Homestay and enjoy a good night’s sleep.

Day 3:

Snow Leopard Sighting Excursion

  • This is the day when the on-foot adventure of the snow leopard trail in Kibber begins.
  • Freshen up early in the morning, take your packed lunch, and proceed to get a sight of the rare cat.
  • This section will prove why this hike is counted among the most popular hikes in Spiti Valley.
  • With a population of only a few thousand, the snow leopards are found only in the central Asian region.
  • As you wander in the area, you might spot the wild cat strolling in the park, looking for a hunt.
  • In case you do not, you will have plenty of opportunities in future.
  • Later, return to the Homestay and spend the night.

Day 4:

Snow Leopard Sighting Excursion

  • Again, start early in the morning, take your packed lunches and head out to spot a snow leopard.
  • Walk from hill to hill, looking for paw prints that could hint about the location of a snow leopard.
  • In case you spot one, do not waste time and immediately click a few pictures.
  • Also, these animals are a little shy and can disappear in the blink of an eye, so it is better to enjoy every second of the sight.
  • Even if no traces of a snow leopard are found, it is highly probable that you will come face to face with an Asiatic ibex or Tibetan wolf.
  • You might also spot a blue sheep standing on steep slopes.
  • Kibber Wildlife Sanctuary is also home to a large number of birds.
  • About 72 species of birds, belonging to 28 families have been recorded here. This list includes White-tailed Ruby throat, Brown Accentor, Horn Lark, Alpine Chough, Himalayan Snow cock, Himalayan Pigeon, Golden Eagle, Tibetan snow finches and red-fronted rose finches etc.

Day 6:

Snow Leopard Sighting Excursion

  • On this last day of snow leopard adventure, begin before the sun comes out, pick your packed lunch and head out for the wildlife spotting tour.
  • Since they have evolved to easily hide in the mountainous region, it can be hard to spot one. Look carefully, as one might be hiding behind a boulder.
