Recommended by: Team Bangalore
January 17 Time: 12:00 pm
Ready for the biggest trek? Are you ready for this?
In the winters the Chadar trek is transformed into a sheet of ice due to heavy amount of rainfall, and thus is is known as the Zanskar Trek. This area is well known for recording the lowest temperatures which makes adventurous treks in Ladakh and exciting for trekkers.
The most secluded and out-of-the-way for almost eight months in a year owing to heavy mount of snowfall results in blockage of all the road which give access to the passes; Zanskar is the least inhabited by the locales , and thus it is one of the very few existing enlightening satellites of the beautiful Tibet. This environmental remoteness coupled with the impenetrable character of the Buddhism which is accomplished here has facilitated ten thousand of its inhabitants to conserve and be responsible for their educational individuality.
There is a lot of trekking included in this trip. It commences in Chilling where from we get on with the new phase walk on the frozen Zanskar River. Thereafter, we trek till Lingshed to walk on Chadar.
