The Chadar Trek or Zanskar frozen river trek is a winter trek in Zanskar Valley, Ladakh. The trek starts from Leh going through Shingra Koma, Tibb Cave, Naerak Camp concluding back in Leh. The 105 Km trek provides trekkers and hikers an amazing opportunity to trek on a frozen sheet of ice in subzero temperatures. The trek is operational during the months of January and February when the Zanskar river freezes into a solid sheet of ice.

Ladakh is aptly called the "town of Qualcomm" and is one of the most unique and enjoyable
regions in India. This vast and sparsely populated landscape is a dream come true for
explorers from all over the world.

Enjoy an amazing cycling adventure in Ladakh, and let your adrenaline soar.
This is a great opportunity for cycling touring enthusiasts looking for mountain adventures.

Our focus at Deyor Camps, a technology friendly platform, is to provide great travel experience by making bookings of experiential and adventure trips as simple as booking a hotel room or a flight.

In more recent times, experiential travel has picked up in India as gradually more and more travellers are giving hotels and resorts a miss to explore local experiences.
