Chadar Trek

Season: Mid January to February
Grade: Moderate to Challenging

Walking on the ice-covered river of Zanskar is an ultimate experience for adventure freaks that are keen to do trekking in the Indian Himalayas. This trek is also named as Chadar trek, which means blanket. Spring water prevents this icy blanket from completely smothering the river, which in some places, retains its rapids; all the more awesome in temperature of -25 to –30 degrees. The trek goes by shuffling along the Chadar that breaks and changes color on the river every few hours! A magnificent and at times challenging trek, with opportunities to relish ancient Buddhist monasteries and secluded villages nestled in the depths of the deep gorges valley of Trans Zanskar ranges. At places, the Chadar (ice sheet) does not form over the river. Then, the trekkers have to forge a new trail trekking over snow-covered banks to move down to a spot on the Zanskar river, where the ice is more stable. What sets this trek apart is its matchless experience. Everything about it is exceptional: the panorama, atmosphere, the frozen river, caves, unusual campsites, sledges and the ever changing Chadar.
