Chadar Snow Trek – 9 days
January 13 @ 7:00 am - January 21 @ 5:00 pm
Due to the extremely cold winters, the Zanskar river freezes and that’s when trekking enthusiasts from around the world flock to this place. The road to Zanskar Valley closes due to the snow and the only way to access the valley is along the frozen river. The entire river becomes a sheet of ice that requires a lot of courage to cross. This frozen river expedition involves walking over ice for 7 days, with the river flowing underneath. Around you, there are frozen waterfalls, natural hot springs that bubble up, splitting the ice and causing it to refreeze in new patterns, stark Ladakh landscape, and friendly locals going about their daily lives.
