Tour Highlights

11 Days Winter Trek on the Frozen River (Chadar)

Remote valley of Zanskarremains completely isolated for seven months when the mountain passes are blocked with deep snow. Winter temperatures of  -30c are common here, making it one of the coldest inhabited places in the world. In the middle of this extreme winter temperature - from Mid January to Early March, the surface of the mighty Zanskar river also gets frozen, looking like a 'white sheet' or 'Chadar' and becomes the only way leading in & out of the region. Since centuries the locals have been using this route - that is dramatically carved by the river as deep canyon with near-vertical rock faces.

Our trek covers the most fascinating part of the mighty & spectacular gorge.
