Chadar Frozen River Trek

Chadar Trek, Zanskar, Ladakh, India

 
 

* The word Chadar means blanket and is used to refer to the trek along the frozen Zanskar River.

* The most amazing thing about the frozen river is how unfrozen it is.

* Spring water prevents the blanket from completely smothering the river which in places retains it rapids.

* All the more fear some in temperature of -30ºC the trek goes by shuffling along the icy path.

* It allows one to penetrate this isolation and also to examine some of the villages along the Zanskar River in the midst
of winter and thus catch a glimpse of the life cycle during this unique time of the year.

* A spectacular and at times challenging trek across the Zanskar with opportunities to savour ancient Buddhist monasteries and remotes villages nestled in the depths of deep gorges valley of Trans Zanskar ranges.

* Chilling and Lingshed are the only sizable villages on this trek until Hanamur and Pidmo before Pishu and Zangla in Zanskar, all the rest are names of places and caves along the route.

You will be dropped by a vehicle at Chilling Sumdo (crossed road) then your trek leads in a narrow valley filled with breath-taking views of ice-peaks and unexpected hanging icicles that will attract your gaze for some time. You will spend the night at cave camps with the help of a born fire that will keep you warm and relaxed.
