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!

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.
