Pallas’s  Cat, a rarest of the rare species of the wild sighted at Chumer sector,ladakh, reroute to Mt. Mentok Kangri on last  monsoon on 24/8/16 by our IBG NEWS Team Adventure Sports Journalist Mr. Santanu Roy Chowdhury.

Pallas’s  cat was last photographed in 2012 at Wangchuk Centenial Park ,Bhutan by  camera trap. This species is more rare to sight than illusive Snow Leopard & seen up to a height of 15000 feet .Locals call this as little Ghost of mountain.

The Pallas’s cat (Otocolobus manul), also called the manul, is a small wild cat with a broad but fragmented distribution in the grasslands and montane steppes of Central Asia. It is negatively affected by habitat degradation, prey base decline, and hunting, and has therefore been classified as Near Threatened by IUCN since 2002.

The Pallas’s cat was named after the German naturalist Peter Simon Pallas, who first described the cat in 1776 under the binomial Felis manul.
