Khaliya Peak Trekking
Hidden between the formidable peaks of the Great Himalayan Ranges, Zanskar was – until recently one of the most inaccessible places in the world. It is a large area of abut 5000 made up of two valleys, the Stod, which connects up with the Suru and Kargil regions, and the Tsarab, which follows the Zanskar River up north. Zanskar remains inaccessible for nearly eight months every year due to heavy winter snowfall resulting in closure of all access passes.

Chadar – meaning a sheet, gets its name as river Zanskaar, freezes in the winter months and is covered by a sheet of ice. During these month, lot of places in laddakh are inaccessible as the higher reaches are snow bound, and the gorges with the frozen river are
the only way to access few of these villages.
