Walking on frozen river of Zanskar is an ultimate experience for an adventure lover. The traditional name of the trek is 'Chadar trek' - the frozen sheet, which was the only way in and out for Zanskaris in winter when all other ways are closed due to heavy snow fall at high passes. Therefore, it had been trade route for centuries for Zanskari People. This Chadar trek allows you to penetrate this isolation and to examine some of the villages along the Zanskar River in the midst of winter and thus catch a glimpse of the lifecycle during this unique time of the year.
