Chadar Trek - The Frozen River Zanskar Trek

Chadar Trek - The Frozen River Zanskar Trek


About The Event

Ladakh has always captivated visitors with its magical charm and beauty. Be it the picturesque mountain peaks, azure lakes or the challenging trekking trails, this scenic valley is known for all. While during the summers, the region adorns the most vibrant colour of the nature, during the wintersit is embraced with heavy snowfalls that cuts off the entire region from the rest of the world.

At this time of the year, even the Zanskar River flowing through the valley freezes down and serves as the only passage to the main valley. Nestled deep within the whirly passages of the snow-clad mountains, this frozen river also entices thousand of trekkers from different corners of the world.

Popularly known as the 'Chadar Trek' due to the formation of the thick blanket of the snow, it is considered as one of the challenging as well as tricky treks in the world. While at times, one can witness the gurgling water at every footstep, there are times when they can feel the snow thickets drifting away from underneath their feet. When this happens, the only way to continue with the trek is to hike through the snowy rocks and boulders beside the river.
