The Frozen Zanskar in Pictures
Trekking on the ice was intimidating. And such route is the Chadar trek, which connects the villages in the Zanskar valley. The term ‘Chadar’ means blanket. The route has been known for trade and transportation, and is most reliable in February when the ice is most stable. Walking on this frozen blanket or ‘Chadar’ is the only way in and out for Zanskaris in winter. The breathtaking beauty of the frozen Zanskar is worth an experience.
