“Going to Ladakh in winter? are you crazy?? you probably should re-consider your travel plans during summer” that’s the statement put forth by some of my friends when I had planned for a trip to Ladakh during last March. When I thought March will be the beginning of summer season in Ladakh just like any other place in India, it turned out that it is still winter in Ladakh with lakes and rivers frozen and a nerve chilling temperature of -2 deg during daytime (and drops further down during night). Most people visiting Ladakh during this season (Jan to mid March) are hardcore trekkers for Chadar frozen river trek. But it was too late for me to re-plan my trip as I had already booked the flight tickets and decided to go ahead with the plan. Three of my friends were also crazy enough to join me on this trip and it turned out to be the greatest adventure trip ever.
