The Chadar Trek (Frozen River) is a freezing escape that embarks upon the blanket of a large icecap on the River Zanskar. The strenuous walk connects us from Ladakh to the snow bound villages of the Zanskar Valley, covering a distance of approximately 90-100 kilometers. The trail all throughout leaves you with clattering teeth and frost dried eyes and during the blanched nights it leads to shiver you to empathize the temperature you never experienced before.
