The Himalayan winter is harsh and when it comes to high altitudes it definitely is tough. The summer melts ice and make rivers flow with frightening speed, but the winter starts freezing everything. Even the deadly rivers are brought down to standstill and are so frozen that one can walk over the river. Imagine a trek where almost for entire duration you walk on frozen river !! TREKDI is organizing a challenging frozen river trek over Zanskar River. This trek is popularly known as "The Chadar Trek." This river is located about 50 Km from Leh. We travel by vehicle to the highway junction of Zanskar river and then we trek in upward in mountains over the frozen river. Six days we travel up and six days we travel down the river. Living in caves, facing temperatures as low as -10 or -15 celcius. Though this trek does not have much altitude gain as compared to other treks it is test for your mind control over your body.
