Himalayan Mountain Tahr

An elusive Himalayan Mountain Tahr (Hemitragus jemlahicus) found while wandering off track between Tengboche and Namche Bazaar. Normally found on high altitude slopes ranging between 2,500 and 5,000 m (8,200 and 16,400 ft), their population is declining in the Himalayas due to hunting and habitat loss.
