Ladakh is the highest plateau region of Kashmir in north India. Also known as the ‘land of high passes’, it includes the Karakoram and Himalayan ranges and the upper Indus valley. The Zanskar river is a north-flowing tributary of the Indus, that connects Chilling in Ladakh to Padum (a town in the Zanskar region in eastern Kashmir). In winters, the roads to Zanskar close down due to heavy snowfall. The river freezes and walking along it becomes the only overland route to Padum. The frozen river is known as Chadar (a white sheet) and has become a popular trekking route for adventurers.
Always do extensive research before embarking for a trek. Make sure that you are aware of the weather conditions during that part of the year and are well-prepared for the same. Always try to be in groups

Blend of Spirituality and Divine Beauty Set amidst towering snow-capped mountains and lying beside a lake of pristine blue water, the Sikh shrine of Sri Hemkunt Sahib looks, even to the not-particularly-pious, a place of almost unbelievable beauty and peace. Seven peaks - known as the Sapt Sring- surround the shrine, looming over lush green pastures. The lake’s rocky shores are covered with snow through most of the year, but when the snows melt, the almost mythical yellow-green flower known as the Brahma Kamal, the `Lotus of the Gods’, blooms amidst the rocks. It’s a place of a rather wild and untamed beauty- and one of Sikhism’s most important shrines.
Sri Hemkunt Sahib is accessible only in the summer, between June and October. The rest of the year, heavy snows make passage impossible, and usually block off the trail leading up to the shrine.
