Mongolia/China Tour, September 10 - October 28, 2018

We visited Mongolia/China from September 10 - October 28, 2018. Our trip started with a private 3-day excursion to Khalzan, a village about a 10-hour drive east of the capital, Ulaanbaatar. Here a camp had been set up by a local researcher to study Pallas’s Cats. We were fortunate to see two at close range during our stay. Following we joined a group tour, “Snow Leopards of Mongolia”, booked through Greentours, a nature travel company based in the UK. The tour visited a camp near the city of Khovd in western Mongolia to search for Snow Leopards. After a 6-night stay we returned to Ulaanbaatar and on to Hustai National Park to look for Przewalski’s Horse.

We left Mongolia on September 25 and flew to Chengdu in Sichuan Province in China for the next leg of our journey. We booked a private tour with a local guide to visit the Rueorgai Grasslands on the eastern edge of the Tibetan Plateau to look for Pallas’s Cat, Chinese Mountain Cat and other mammals.

We returned to Chengdu to join a second Greentours tour, “Mammals of the Roof of the World”. We flew to Xining on October 3 to start our tour to look for Tibetan Gazelle, Kiang, Tibetan Wolf, Pallas’s Cat, Wild Yak and Chiru. We concluded our trip with two extensions in Sichuan, Labahe and Tangjiahe Nature Reserves to look for Red Panda, Takin and other mammals.
