Chadar Lake Trek, Ladakh: The Adventure of Walking on a Frozen River Bed

I am 100 percent sure I was also born with a travel bug that kept itself hidden until I turned 20. The bug now keeps raising its head from time to time, asking me about my futuretravel plans.

My last year’s trip to frozen Zanskarriverin Ladakh was one such attempt to pacify my travel bug.
