Chadar Trek Memories – 2016

Walking on the frozen Zanskar has been a dream for many. It is in fact being a part of a thousand years old heritage. The thrill and the ecstasy on keeping your foot on the Chadar and walking on it cannot be described in words. It’s something which can only be felt in the heart. The memories live with you lifelong, and you become a part of the Zanskari legacy for ever. Your definition of winters change and temperatures of -25 degrees don’t scare you any more. The lonely starry nights don’t give you shivers, and fear is no more a factor for you once you have done this. Your mental and physical capabilities increase and you find a more tougher human in you. You came back with wonderful stories and you have redefined adventure. Thank you all for believing in us and giving us so many wonderful memories. It was a privilege to have people like you travel with us.  I would like to share some of the wonderful memories from our Chadar 2016.
