During winter season, Zanskar river is covered with a sheet of ice, which changes colour every now and then. At times, you may even find the sheet of ice to be thin, which would require you to find a new trail. It’s important to be careful at every step, and follow your guide religiously. With proper guidance, you can overcome these challenges.


Professional trekking guides provide all the necessary information and tips. A Chadar trek package from a reputed tour operator allows you to enjoy the experience even more.
