Himalayan Marmot Sunbathing at 4500 m in Ladakh on the way to Pangong Tso Lake.

Himalayan Marmots are marmots found in the Himalayan regions ranging in elevation from 300 metres to 4,500 metres. They are about the size of a large housecat, and live in colonies. Marmota himalayanus is closely related to the Woodchuck, the Hoary Marmot and the Yellow-bellied Marmot. It has a dark chocolate-brown coat with contrasting yellow patches on its face and chest.
