THE CHADAR FROZEN RIVER TREK

from 0.00

Walking on the frozen river of Zanskar is THE ultimate experience for adventure lovers. The traditional name of the trek is “Chadar trek” the frozen sheet of ice, which was the only way in and out for the people of Zanskar in winters when all other ways are closed due to heavy snowfall at high passes.

This is a trek to some of the most isolated yet inhabited regions in the Zanskar mountains, most notably the village of Lingshed.

You will be trekking/ walking on ice – the frozen Zanskar River, an average five to seven hours a day, at an easy pace; but a reasonable degree of physical fitness is needed to sustain walking for five-six days during the harsh cold winter conditions.

    All about the THE CHADAR FROZEN RIVER TREK.

    The trek commences from the village of Chilling located not far from the confluence of the Indus and the Zanskar rivers. The trek follows the river gorge through a spectacular landscape, a photographer’s paradise, offering occasional sighting of wildlife.

    Although pleasant on clear – sunny days, the weather conditions can change abruptly, with wind temperatures known to plummet minus 20 to 30 degrees Celsius.

    Chilling and Lingshed are the only sizeable villages on this trek, all the rest are names of places and caves along the route.
