Yak Safari in Ladakh

The Yak Safari is a unique safari in Ladakh. It is an experience unique to Ladakh. Exploring lakes, glacial valleys, gurgling streams, cascades, chiselled snow peaks, meadows and forests on yak can be a lifetime experience. Yak (dong), a wild ox is the largest animal of the cold desert. Yak was first described only a century ago by the famous Russian naturalist and explorer, N. M. Przewalski as most imposing than its placid domestic counterpart. Yak is immensely shaggy and weighs about a ton. It has curved horns whose tips can be as wide apart as 90 cm. and measure 76 cm. over the curves. It can easily be distinguished by its long black hair, which is tinged with gray at the muzzle. The yaks graze on the Himalayan valley at the height of over 6,000 meters in summer. In the winters, yaks migrate to lakes, marshes and lower valleys. It is this highly insulated shaggy coat which helps Yak to survive in such extreme cold. The Yak Safari offers breathtaking views of high peaks of this rugged land. A Yak Safari is organised on prior booking. All those who wish to experience Yak Safari in Ladakh should respect the humble attitude of this majestic animal. His extreme hospitality should not be mistaken for his weakness or laziness. Anyone who locks horns with this benevolent beast will have to face the music.
