Chadar Frozen River Trek – 9 days
January 12 @ 7:00 am - January 20 @ 5:00 pm
In winter, when the temperatures drop to sub-zero, the stark landscape of Leh turns into an icy paradise. The raging Zanskar river turns into a sheet of ice, forming the only connecting route between villages when the roads are snowed in.
This nine-day itinerary gives you a complete experience of the Chadar trek. You’ll spend a day to acclimatize in Leh, before heading out to take your first steps on ice. As you trek, you’ll pass frozen waterfalls, cliffs, rockfaces, and weather-blackened trees with bare branches. At night, you’ll camp in tents, or, on one or two nights, spend the night in the famous Dibb Cave.
