Mongolia: Snow Leopard, Pallas’s Cat & Siberian Migrants
Here’s a possible rephrased version: “Look for the elusive Snow Leopard and the rarely spotted Pallas’s Cat in the comfort of our Ger base camps, which are situated at relatively lower altitudes with warmer temperatures and require less walking compared to other locations worldwide. The tour is timed to coincide with the migration of autumn passerines.”
