Chadar trek takes you into some of the most isolated yet inhabited regions in the Zanskar mountains, most notably the village of Lingshed. It connects villages in the Zanskar valley with Chilling along the frozen River of Zanskar. From Chilling Sumdo, the trek moves through valleys, ice-peaks and unexpected hanging icicles. Nights are spent in caves amidst bonfires. The trek commences from the village of Chiling located not far from the confluence of Indus and the Zanskar River. The trek follows the river gorge through a spectacular landscape, a photographer’s paradise, offering occasional sighting of wildlife. Although pleasant on clear, sunny days, the weather conditions can change abruptly, with wind temperatures known to plummet minus 20 to 30 degrees Celsius.
