Have you ever wanted to travel to the Himalayas?
Our fellow ACC'ers Ed Fisher and Helen Habgood will recount their quest, over a period of twenty-five years, to catch a glimpse of a snow leopard in the Himalayan wilderness.
Ed developed a curiosity for these mountain cats twenty-five years ago after reading Peter Matthiesson’s book. The Snow Leopard was a bestseller that described innumerous months spent scouring the Himalayas for snow leopards, never to see any. Since the planting of that seed, Ed and Helen have made a number of trips to the Himalayas and Trans Himalayas, living many adventures as they looked for this elusive, almost ghost like creature.
Were they successful? Does the quest continue? Join us to find out!
