Eight day trek to Chadar
January 6 @ 6:30 am - January 13 @ 11:00 am
Chadar in Hindi means ‘a blanket’. During winters, large sections of the Zanskar River freezes to resemble a blanket of ice, thereby deriving the name. As heavy snowfall isolates a few desolate villages from the main habitation, the Chadar Trek remains the only way to reach these villages. This dangerously thrilling trek involves walking on the frozen Zanskar River, camping in this icy wonderland, and discovering the dramatic beauty of a winter landscape, where the trees are bare and you are surrounded by ice, snow, and cold.
