Wildlife photo safari to Sichuan and Tibet in 2023
I’m thinking of a trip starting at Chengdu, Sichuan, in February 2023. We would drive to a Labahe in western Sichuan, then in 4x4s up onto the Tibetan Plateau, past Qinghai Lake and across the plateau to Wild Yak Valley and back by a more southerly route (or vice versa). Labahe might turn up Tibetan Macaques, Red Panda, Chinese Goral, Sambar, Reeve’s Muntjaks, Swinhoe’s Striped Squirrel and giant flying squirrels. In Tibet we might see Snow Leopard, Lynx, Pallas’s Cat, Grey Wolf, Brown Bear, Argali, Tibetan Gazelles, Blue Sheep, Red Deer, White-lipped Deer, Tibetan Antelope and Wild Yak. I’m thinking of around 25 days. Temperatures will be fresh, but November-February is the best season for mammals because they are at low elevation, close to roads. It ought to be good for resident birds, too. Anyone interested?
