Located in the eastern part of Ladakh in the Kargil district Zanskar valley is a peculiar location. Surrounded by lofty snow-capped mountains, the semi-desert valley is attractive. Though devoid of vegetation, the area has a scenic beauty. The pleasing atmosphere and serene water bodies accentuate the beauty of the place. Nevertheless, the valley is only open during the summer season as it is covered in a thick coat of snow during other times of the year. But the valley can be reached during this season by undertaking the popular Chadar Trek. Make sure to include the destination in your Ladakh tour.
