Planning for Chadar Trek? This is what you should know
Winters in Ladakh can be amazing. The temperatures plummet much below the freezing point. This makes the Zanskar River freeze. With time it forms a thick layer of ice on it. This is that which is referred to as Chadar. A walk on this frozen river is called Chadar trek. The amazing colours ranging from bluish tinge to golden yellow produced by the reflection of the sky and the mountains on the layer of ice is marvellous. It’s a walk like none other on earth.
