Ladakh can be a troublesome place to travel. The mountains are steep and in the winter snowfall closes a large portion of the mountain passes and makes the couple of streets tricky. A few towns turn out to be totally difficult to reach amongst November and March.
One technique for getting to snow-bound towns amid the winter is trekking on top of the ice of solidified waterways. The Chadar trek is one such course, interfacing towns in the Zanskar valley (somewhere down in the mountains) with Chilling (making progress toward Leh) along the solidified Zanskar River. This course has been utilized for quite a long time for exchange and transportation, and is most dependable in February when the ice is generally steady.
