Ladakh named as world's best wildlifeOne of India’s leading tourist destinations, Ladakh, has been named as world’s best wildlife and nature destination. Lonely Planet, in in its list of the top spots to discover wildlife and nature in February, has named Ladakh.

 

Snow leopard spotting and ice trekking in Ladakh has been cited by Lonely Planet as the favourite activity tourists should opt for.

 

It suggests wildlife fans should head for Hemis National Park which is home to a 400-year-old monastery, and one of the few places on the planet where the elusive snow leopard isn’t quite so elusive. With the mating season peaking in February, it becomes easier to spot one.

 

Trekkers, on the other hand, have been advised to check out the Chadar, the winter hike which starts near Leh, and uses the frozen Zanskar River as its path. Believe it or not, walking on this icy meander is the only way to access the highland villages at this time.
