Best snow leopard habitat in India?

I got two inquiries this week from folks in India wanting to know the area  for best chance to see snow leopard. After my fantastic trip in February with the Snow Leopard Conservancy India Trust I have to say Hemis National Park in Ladakh in northern India is special snow leopard habitat. Of course there are no guarantees and we met many people who had trekked for weeks without seeing a cat. But the odds here are probably better than anywhere else I have heard of.  I’d love to hear from you if you know an area where chances of sightings are high.

    Really nice site. lots of info. I have seen one cat while walking on the river Chadar this Jan with a team of 13. Cat was chasing ibex. it was amazing. I guess it was near Tsarak Do.

    I dont know whether thats national park or not.
