Ghost Of The Mountains

A rare photo of a snow leopard from northwestern Mongolia in 2014 ignites a Danish-Italian research expedition to the remote Silkhem B. national park.

Rasmus and Francesco, two naturalists with expertise in the field of camera trapping are taken on to install 50 cameras in the park, and collect images of the snow leopards. However, the two naturalists will first have to deal with the daily life together with the rangers and the families of shepherds who accommodate them during their stay, and the impact of livestock in the national park.
