13 days birding expedition on the Roof of the World with an unexpected meeting with the king of the snow mountain
As the world's highest and largest plateau, there is no place as mysterious as Qinghai-Tibet Plateau. The climates present zonal distribution that the northwestern part is extremely cold while the southeast is humid and warm that create the most various nature habitat to the plateau creatures.
In the past 13 days, we went through all these fantastic habitats, from desolate gobi desert to vast grassland, from lush forest to alpine meadow, so many incredible birds and stunning animals jumped out to us.
After one week’s exploration on the plateau, we already climbed up to 4500 meters high, where is the king of the Snow mountain, the Snow Leopard’s territory. We would never believe it if we didn’t see a Snow Leopard standing on the ridge top ourselves. It was just amazing and awe-inspiring. We would never forget this life moment.
Also, the blooming alpine flowers are the most valuable addition of this tour!
