"Look out for Marmots" Top 5 Page for this destination Leh Things to Do Tip by abi_maha

Leh Things to Do: 101 reviews and 245 photos


Even as you drive from one place to another keep a look out for Himalayan Marmots- they live in colonies and pop out from underground out of nowhere! They are vegetarian creatures and are extremely friendly...this is rather sad and it may very soon endanger their lives! Most tourists feed them and pet them, I am guilty of the same as they are quite irresistible..on hindsight I regret it very much!
