The Great Ice-capade: Chadar Trek in Ladakh India

The Great Ice-capade: Chadar Trek in Ladakh India

Ladakh’s sweetheart, Chadar Trek has earned the affection of all who travel her frozen banks. This beautiful, one-of-a-kind journey takes you along the frozen Zanskar River, where the ice itself is your trail!

The nearest connectivity point is the city of Leh, which must be flown into during the winter months, as road transport becomes inhibited by snow during that season. From Leh, the drive is 70km by hired taxi to beautiful Shingra, which acts as the trailhead of Chadar Trek and your entry point onto the Zanskar. With your rations being transported by sled, hidden caves are waiting to be explored and a magnificent frozen waterfall perched at the innermost point of the valley, it’s no wonder this trek intrigues so many.

Why Americans Love Da Nang, Vietnam and You Will Too

Why Americans Love Da Nang, Vietnam and You Will Too

Da Nang is decked out with bright lights and towering skyscrapers, twinkling bridges, one in the shape of a coiling dragon and still another, the Han Bridge, that looks like something out of a Japanese urban adventure.

During the day, students bustle to work on their motorbikes, carrying two or three passengers at a time while workers have since been up at the crack of dawn, wearing their face masks to protect them from the pollution that is almost non-existent by other country’s standards. For an American, the traffic patterns would be considered almost chaotic, but to a normal resident or even an expat on an extended stay, it’s a controlled chaos, perhaps even safer than the false sense of security that traffic in the United States provides. Here there is little road rage or public condemnation of driving of any sort because it’s just assumed that you “go slowly,” at an intersection and give anybody the right of way. Anybody. It’s traffic that has etiquette built into its logic.
