    "Chadar" means blanket or veil of ice that covers the Zanskar river over the winters. This expedition style challenging trek takes one to the remote Zanskar valley which can only be penetrated in the long harsh winter months by walking on the "Chadar" - the frozen Zanskar River through the incredible Zanskar gorge with its stunning scenery and landscape. The rocks beneath the icy blue green water and ice and snow above make it look like artist's work. The brilliant blue skies high above stand out against the brown hues of the narrow Zanskar gorge. This trip is truly one of the world's greatest adventures' as you trek along the traditional Zanskari winter route meeting the locals and children going to School in Leh. You also get to visit the villages and stay in homes thus getting an insight into the lives of the simple Zanskari folk during the hostile winter period. The harsh climatic conditions ( minus 30 C) make this trip even harder as you shuffle along the frozen river and sometime have to even wade through the icy waters or scramble over cliffs. This trip promises to be a "Lifetime's adventure trip" and a must for those who yearn to do a unique challenging expedition style adventure.
