Chadar Trekking
 
Walking on Frozen river of Zanskar is an ultimate experience for adventure lover. The traditional name of the trek is "Chadar trek" the frozen sheet, which was only way in and out for Zanskaris ichadar trek ladakhn 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. Now the route is also famous as winter trekking among adventure lovers.

We walk through the kingdom of Zanskar, visiting the small towns of Pishu, Pidmo, Stonde and Zangla and their impressive gompas and forts.
This is a truly adventurous trek graded as an expedition grade 5 due to the unpredictability of the conditions encountered and the remoteness of the area visited. The amount and condition of the ice on the Zanskar river can very year on year and also day to day so a flexible attitude is essential! It would be suitable for someone who has some mountaineering experience (especially the use of ice axe and crampons on steeper ice) and is prepared to put up with the cold temperature (down to –35°C at night).

One of the most interesting parts of the trek will be gaining an insight into the remote cultures of Zanskar and Ladakh and on this journey you will have the chances to stay with local Zanskaris. We also employ locals as porters, cooks and guides on this trek which is of great economic benefit to these marginal communities.
