About this listing

The Chadar Trek or the Zanskar Gorge is a winter trail in the Zanskar region of Ladakh, in Jammu and Kashmir. This trek is famous for its unique sheet of ice, frozen waterfalls, bubble trapped in ice and extreme temperature. The route that was discovered as a trade route between Zanskar and Ladakh by locals is more than 1,000 years old. Even today this route is used by the Zanskari people to move in and out of the Zanskar valley to Leh. More you interact with them, more you’ll fall in love with this place and its astonishing stories.
