The Zanskar River, a wild river, flows in the Himalayan summer between their deep valleys. In winter, it became an ice trail. Because it was surrounded by impressive Himalayan mountains, the Zanskar Indian Valley remained remote for thousands of years. It has an average height of 3,600m and a peak of 7,000m.
The Ladakh region, which is part of Zanskar, is described by the adage “This country is incredibly tranquil and the cost of visiting us is such that only our enemies can be the fiercest”. The Chadar Trek, or Zanskar Gorge Trek, is the name of the frozen winter trail that crosses the Zanskar River in the Indian Union Ladakh area.
In the winter, it was the only mode of transport in the area. International adventure travelers are increasingly choosing this song.
The tracks are the most comparable climb in the Himalayas to any other, also known as the Zanskar Gorge and Benefit River. Chadar is a term that means “white sheet”. Chadar’s journey, which started at 11,150 feet above sea level, was reminiscent of the trip to the North Pole. Because it is cold at night, you will need to shelter in the cave. All food and drink must be brought on sliding trains.
Many people, especially adventurers, have a chanar journey on their bucket lists. Zanskari is the local name for Zanskari. They mainly manage livestock and process it. Chadar Trek will encourage you to step out of your comfort zone. You will feel cold when you’re far from civilization. For several days, be under the protection of nature. However, you can try out controversial butter tea.
This book will give you a fresh perspective on life and help you to connect with the natural world. You’ll learn a lot more about Ladakhen, their problems, and how they live. This simple experience will make you more aware of the pleasures and comforts of your daily life.
Winter brought about remarkable changes in Ladakh’s sight. This high-altitude desert is best seen from the Zanskar River. A waterfall that has frozen creates an impressive ice wall. You can see the air bubbles that formed from the frozen river under the ice. The path is covered in thick layers of ice and water. Chadar around them changed constantly.
Ice can melt, crack, or freeze even at low temperatures. You may be able to see the mountain goats if you’re lucky. The trees surrounding the mountain goats don’t have any leaves and the weather branches of these trees stand out against the white background.
Another Indian trex passes through the old fort and valley, as well as through a cave and bait. This increase is winding along the Zanskar River. It will be possible to walk on ice if it is thick enough.
The guide will direct you to climb up the river’s edge where it feels too thin. The guide will direct you to stop and set up a tent. Enjoy the peaceful river and starry night. You can see the campfires of other trekking groups further downstream. You can enjoy singing and delicious food as you make it through the cold nights. The Tibb cave is a popular destination for pedestrians of all abilities.
Because the cave was built around a campfire, the walls were stolen. You will feel more adventurous if you share your experiences with pedestrians. This will promote a sense of togetherness and make you feel like an adventurer.
It’s time for you to go!
The Multi-Day Walk across Ice Zanskar river, Ladakh, took place depending on the weather. It was either at the end of January or the end February. Or at multiple points in March. It was the most amazing experience of your life to walk on thick glass of ice with large mountains on either side.
