Zanskar Frozen River Trek
I would like to attempt an independent trek from Padum to Chiling or ever father, the goal is basically to get to Leh without having to fly, and as the road connecting Manali and Leh is not completed yet, trekking is the way to go. Of course this is preferable, as the Zanskar River Trek is supposedly a marvelous one. One that will soon disappear or at the very least lose it’s luster upon completion of the Manali-Leh highway.
Currently the plan is just myself and my partner, but we would be more than happy to have more companions on the trek.
If anyone else is interested I think it would be prudent to rendezvous in Manali, take a car to Padum, and from there trek the frozen river to either Chiling, and then take a car to Leh, or if so desired all the way to the confluence of the Zanskar and Indus rivers, (roughly 25km farther). Reply here if interested, or have similar plans.Reply
