About this product

Language: French narration and French subtitles of other langauges

In this wildlife documentary, Eric Dragesco spent eight weeks following former hunting guide Baasan. He was converted to eco-tourism and now regularly departs for the most remote valleys of his country, Mongolia. This year, in August, he went alone to meet with friends who are shepherds in the Altai mountains, and to try, with their help, to flush out the snow leopard, the true "holy grail" of all passionate naturalist... After weeks of research and dozens of trips, which allow him to see all the great wildlife of the Altai, luck is finally on his side, and he was able to make observations of this rare mythical feline... After this success, Baasan returns to the same valley, in winter, during the rut, but winter is particularly harsh.

This unique documentary features exceptional footage from this rarest of the big cats.

Summary in French:
Huit semaines de tournage dans une vallée sauvage du massif de l'altai en Mongolie. Ancien guide de chasse, Baasan s’est reconverti dans l’éco-tourisme, et part régulièrement dans les vallées les plus reculées de son pays, la Mongolie.

Cette année, en Août, il part seul, pour retrouver ses amis bergers de l’Altaï, et pour essayer, grâce à leur aide, de débusquer le Léopard des neiges, véritable « Graal » de tout naturaliste passionné… Après des semaines de recherches et des dizaines d’affûts, qui lui permettent de côtoyer toute la grande faune de l’Altaï, la chance est enfin au rendez-vous, et il réussit à faire des observations rarissimes de ce félin mythique..

Après ce succès, Baasan retourne dans la même vallée, en plein hiver, à la période du rut, mais l’hiver est particulièrement rigoureux…
