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 Zanskar in winter when all other ways are closed due to heavy snow fall at high passes. Therefore, it had been trade route for centuries for Zanskar People. Now the route is also famous as winter trekking among adventure lovers. For last several years, The Chadar Expedition is an adventurous trek plunging deep into the heart of Zanskar, an area of rare beauty. From January to February the Zanskar River freezes for a few weeks, this spectacular trek follows the traditional trading route through the Zanskar Gorge. The Gorge - impassable during the summer months, is a lifeline to the outside world in the depths of winter. The Chadar region is rarely visited by tourists and allows a glimpse of this enchanting winter universe, dramatic mountains and glaciers, home to the Zanskari people and their ancient Zanskar Monasteries.
