Ladakh is part of Jammu Kashmir and it is frequently referred to as the “Switzerland of Asia” – actually “there is no place like the serene Ladakh in Switzerland… correction, anywhere else on Earth.” (Vishal Mungi).
The hike on the frozen Zanskar River follows a spectacular route patronized by the people of the Zanskar valley for hundreds of years. This was their only contact with the outside world for trade during the 8 months long winter.
Ladakh is famed for its high passes, brackish water lakes, a stunning lunar-like landscape, a Buddhist culture warped in time, deep blue endless skies, and a landscape that is larger than life. (Did we mention “Switzerland of Asia”?) It is an adventure-seeker’s paradise. Many have said Ladakh is the most beautiful place in the world, but we seek a beauty even more surreal and attempt one of the most celebrated, difficult and exquisite treks of the region. We will walk on a frozen river bed, camp near caves along the way and encounter cold and altitude to get the unique Chadar experience.
