Chadar Trek, Frozen River Zanskar Trek


popularly known as the 'Chadar Trek' due to the formation of the thick blanket of the snow, it is considered as one of the challenging as well as tricky treks in the world. While at times, one can witness the gurgling water at every footstep, there are times when they can feel the snow thickets drifting away from underneath their feet. When this happens, the only way to continue with the trek is to hike through the snowy rocks and boulders beside the river. – PowerPoint PPT presentation

About the Trek
  • Ladakh is nestled deep in the valleys of
    Himalayas and is one of the most diverse
    landscapes to adorn the northern frontiers of
    India. Bedecked in stunning seasonal beauties
    that adorn different colours with the passing
    seasons. Blanketed in the thick white tufts of
    snow in the winters, the same region comes alive
    in diverse colors and hues during the summers.
    Shedding its white garb, it puts on a vibrant
    cloth of colors, vibrancy and diversity of flora
    and fauna.

About the Trek (cont)
  • However, it is during these harsh winters
    that the Zanskar River that flows through the
    valley, fully freezes over and is the only
    gateway to the valley. Resembling a long white
    bedsheet, it is no surpise therefore that the
    trek is called Chadar Trek. This one of its kind
    trek in the Himalayas attracts many adventurists,
    to conquer its slopes and mountainous terrains.
    Contrary to popular perception, the trek to
    Chadar Lake is trickier than it is challenging.

About the Trek (Cont)
  • If you know where to grab your next foothold,
    then it is less dangerous that it is presumed to
    be. While at times, water gurgles away besides
    you at other times the thickets of snow drift
    away from under your feet, then your only
    companions are the snowy boulders and rocks that
    border the frozen river.
  • For an experience slightly away from the
    ordinary, that opens you up to unexplored and
    virgin beauty of nature, embark on a trek to
    Chadar Lake!
