About the Destination:
Treating you with an out-of –this-world experience, Zanskar Chadar Trek is no ordinary feat. After all, how often is it that you can pride yourself in walking on ice? The activity takes place in the celestial like location of Ladakh. As if painted in a dream, the terrain here enchants with a black and white landscape laced with grey and blue.
When the winter begins in Ladakh, the gushing Zanskar River that makes its way through the remote canyons congeals into a sheet of ice (hence the name Chadar which means blanket). This is when the brazen set off on what is considered as the toughest and most adventurous trek that entails weathering harsh conditions and bearing templates that can dip to 25 to -35 degrees.
Shielded in snow-capped peaks and clustered among two small alpine lakes, Zanskar is an ethereal place in Jammu and Kashmir. Due to dense snowfall in the winter times, the road to the valley gets shut and the only way to get across is the frozen river.
The Amazing Zanskar Chadar Trek opens up many delights along the way. Pass through frozen waterfalls, explore the charming Nyerak Village, make way through deep gorges and sleep in caves beside the frozen river.
