Hemis National Park is one of the major attractions of Ladakh which draws many adventurers and wildlife enthusiasts from all over the world. It is spread over an elevation of 4100 meters and covers the entire Rumbak Valley. The national park is home to animals of various species including snow leopards and Himalayan birds. 

The Snow Leopard Trek, one of the popular winter treks in the Ladakh region, is located in an area where human hospitality and rugged mountains welcome you. 

Many rare and endangered animal species are found in this cold desert such as the elusive Snow Leopards, Tibetan wolves, Blue Sheep, Horned Sheep, Eurasian Brown Bears, Ibex, Tibetan Antelope, Shapo, Marmot, and many more.
