Hemis National Park (or Hemis High Altitude National Park) is a high altitude national park in the eastern Ladakh region of the state of Jammu and Kashmir in India.

Globally famous for its snow leopards, it is believed to have the highest density of them in any protected area in the world.[1] It is the only national park in India that is north of the Himalayas, the largest notified protected area in India (largest National park) and is the second largest contiguous protected area, after the Nanda Devi Biosphere Reserveand surrounding protected areas. The park is home to a number of species of endangered mammals, including the snow leopard. Hemis National Park is India’s protected area inside the Palearctic ecozone, outside the Changthang Wildlife Sanctuary northeast of Hemis, and the proposed Tso Lhamo Cold Desert Conservation Area in North Sikkim.

The park is bounded on the north by the banks of the Indus River, and includes the catchments of Markha, Sumdah and Rumbak, and parts of the Zanskar Range.

Snow leopard Trek is one of the few treks in Ladakh which can be done during winter, the best months are February and March. Snow leopards are very elusive felines and there is a higher chance of spotting them during winter when they descend to the valleys in search of food.Ulay.

Our days are spent in the fervent sighting of the Snow Leopard and their prey. Hemis National Park is appraised for being home to fauna and flora of various kinds including argali (a great-horned sheep), Tibetan Wolf and blue sheep. Snow Leopard come down to the lower altitudes as the winter begins. This strengthens our chances of spotting them and if our deal with destiny is sealed stiff, we could get to glimpse at the snow leopard resting on the rocks or on the ridgelines.
