Karakoram Wildlife Sanctuary


The Karakoram Wildlife Sanctuary is a high altitude wildlife sanctuary located in the easternmost reaches of the Karakoram range in Leh District, Jammu and Kashmir. It is important as one of the few places in India with a migratory population of the Chiru or Tibetan Antelope. This Wildlife Sanctuary has been extensively surveyed by Prof. Chandra Prakash Kala for distribution of vegetation, including plants of medicinal values, across the environmental gradient and habitat types.
