ICE TREK ON THE ZANSKAR RIVER Where?
The ancient Chadar route, which starts from Chiling and travels some 4o kilometres west of the Zanskari village of Hanumil.
A strenuous winter ice trek along the frozen Zanskar river following an ancient trading route via the gompas and forts of small villages like Pishu and Stongde.
Unpredictable weather conditions combined with the remoteness of this glorious region make this a very challenging trip.
