Ladakh has always been the favorite haunt of the trekkers across the globe. It is full of trails that connect the remotest villages spread across the various ancient routes. And there’s no better way to absorb the beauty and cultural essence of the land than trekking through it. Going by the travel guides, there are countless treks in Ladakh that promise trekkers an opportunity to enjoy a rendezvous with different forms of nature. Amongst all these trekking expeditions in Ladakh, the most challenging, thrilling and exciting trek would be the Frozen River Chadar Trek. In a class by itself, Frozen River Chadar Trek allows adventurers to trudge through the frozen river, Zanskar, which turns into a thick sheet of ice (Chadar) during the winter season. The trail does have a historical connection as it was once the part of the Silk Route. The local people used to walk 90 miles in 11 days to Leh over the frozen river to trade their wares.
Utterly nerve-racking yet intoxicating, it is counted amongst the best winter treks in Indian Himalayas. The trekking expedition allows trekkers to escape to remote areas of Zanskar that are aloof of modernization; follow the old trade routes; peek into the culture of locals; pay a visit to holy Gompas and make eventful memories. It is a trek that every trekker in the world should take up.
