Observe from a distance
Markhors are not fond of other life forms, be them goats. They tend to stay by themselves and keep a small company.
Do not corner them
The Markhor will not hesitate to strike if it sees you as a threat and has nowhere to run. Stay safe by not getting it scared.
The Markhor wants to stay at home at all times. It enjoys with the others and stays where it likes the most. Like a popular saying: “A man’s home is his castle”.
It may be rare owing to the fact that it is a wild animal, but with caution, one might be able to approach a Markhor and not get hurt at the same time. They key is patience.
Sight-seeing in winters
During the winter season, the Markhors come downhill where there is less cold and spend the season there.
An afternoon walk
The Markhor is active in the cooler times of the day when it looks for something to eat. This is the best time to examine its behavior and how it moves around.
Large amounts of Markhor herds were killed by hunters from within the land and from foreigners. This led to a subsequent decrease in their population. This decreasing amount led to the animal being declared endangered and they were scarcely seen then. Recently the government took measures to stop this foul practice and situations have gotten better. Therefore, live and let live!
