Chadar Frozen Zanskar River Trek: 20 – 28 Jan 2018

Ladakh, the land of high passes is blessed with natural beauty. Due to extreme weather conditions in winters, these passes are closed for most of the time of the year. The tourist season June to September is fairly short when the ice melts to open these passes and weather is pleasant. However, the winter has its own opportunities for adventure – walking on the frozen Zanskar river. This is the Chadar trek.
Characterised by extreme cold, walking on icy river, using sleds to carry luggage and supplies, this is one unique winter trek any avid trekker should not miss.

    The state of Nagaland in the North East of India is home to several tribes each of which are distinct in their language, culture and customs. The festivals are important to the tribes as these revolve around agriculture, which is a major profession in the state. The Nagas consider their festivals sacred and so participation in these festivals is essential. To encourage inter-tribal interaction and to promote cultural heritage of Nagaland, the Government of Nagaland organizes the Hornbill Festival every year in the first week of December. The festival is named after the Indian hornbill, the large and colourful forest bird, which is displayed in folklore in most of the state’s tribes. If you are headed to the Hornbill festivel, it’s a great opportunity to combine this trip with a stay and safari at the popular Rhino destination – Kaziranga National Park. And then further explore the North-East and get mesmerised by Meghalaya.
    This experience will allow you to do just that.
