We came down from Tso Kar one day earlierfearing that the snowing can get us stuck up there. For this extra day we decided to visit Ulley village, which is found 80 kms from Leh.

There was fresh snow around Leh too. We were a bit worrying as flights can be easily cancelled due to the poor visibility amoung the mountains.

Asiatic Ibex. Our main target around Ulley.

I've missed Wolf twice at Tso Kar. The first was seen from the car behind me, the 2nd walked a few hundred meters from the house I was sleeping in. They woke me up, but the wolf was gone by the time I got up. So I was extremely happy and relieved for this sighting on the last day from Ulley village. The animal was resting on the hillside opposite the village. I wouldn't miss a second from my first ever wolf, so I ate my lunch stading by my scope.

Local women were walking to the monastery. We helped as much of them as our car could carry.
