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.
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.

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.
