Increasingly favoured for camping in the cold desert, Zanskar is a valley of old monasteries in the state of Jammu and Kashmir. The world famous Chadhar Trek starts here, and is the dream of every individual interested in trekking. Inaccessible during the winter, the barren beauty of this destination leaves everyone spell bound.
Primevally a town lost in the Himalayan mountains and strictly bound in Buddhist regimes, Zanskar has over time been discovered by explorers and today, is a place of importance to the tourists visiting Leh and Ladakh. This place is rich in monasteries, which depict exquisite architecture along with imparting higher spiritual learning. The valley also has an oppulence of pungent smelling therapeutic herbs and shrubs. Zongkhul, near this place, has a number of cave monasteries that catch the fancy of every visitor. One can also take enthralling Jeep safaris in the rugged mountain terrains and marvel at the barren but still beauteous view.
