During the winter, Ladakh, is isolated from the whole country due to heavy snowfall. The only way to Ladakh is by air from Delhi. In winter the temperature goes down to 3o below zero and the mighty  Zanskar river freezes. This seven to eight day trek from Chilling to Padum over the Zanskar is both challenging as well as an unforgettable experience. The landscape acquires a pristine grandeur in winter as the trail enters into the gorge of the Zanskar.

Trek Duration: 9 Days 8Nights
