Overview

The Chadar River Trek, also known as the Zanskar Trek or the Ladakh Frozen River Trek, is the only one of its kind in the world. The trek is completely covered with snow all over the place. It’s both thrilling and terrifying, a paradise for trekker’s and nature lovers. Steep canyons surround you most of the trek. As you make your way through fast-flowing, icy-cold river water, the canyon walls can be your sole source of support. The Zanskar River is a large, fast-flowing river that runs all year. For the most part, it flows between Chilling and the Zanskar valley through a rocky canyon. The walk is unique and it takes place at a high altitude and on a frozen sheet of ice.
