Most Dangerous Treks In India
The Shadar trek or frozen river trek is one of the most unique and challenging treks in India. The 6-day Shadar trek across the frozen Zanskar River in Ladakh takes place during the latter part of January to the end of February or sometimes in the first week of March depending on the weather. The starting point of your journey from Chadar to base camp is chilling. Drive on the Leh-Srinagar highway to reach Zanskar, just before Zanskar is Chilling. The end of Chilling Road is where Chadar's journey begins. Take small steps over Chadar to feel the ice below.

Stok Kangri Trek
Stok Kangri is located in Hemis National Park, Ladakh, at an elevation of 20,090 feet above sea level. This also makes it the highest mountain in the Stok range in the Himalayas, offering a great view of Zanskar and the Indus Valley. Hikers are drawn here because it offers cool scenery and exceptional scenery in a serene setting. Although the journey is relatively easy, due to the altitude of Ladakh, the air becomes thinner, which leads to oxygen starvation. As a result, hikers can suffer from altitude sickness, nausea, and headaches, making Stok Kangri a great challenge for mountaineers.

Pin Parvati Pass, Kasol
Pin Parvati Pass is an ideal destination for hikers looking for a challenging adventure. It is one of the incredible trekkings through the Himalayas that will not only leave its beauty astonishing, but will also give you an adrenaline rush with the challenges it presents. With an impressive track of around 110 kilometers, the excitement it offers is almost endless. Pin Parvati Pass Trekking is not well defined but gets worse during monsoon season. The road through the dense forests of the Great Himalayan National Park is a challenge even for experienced backpackers. Crossing the Parvati River and its various tributaries can be a bit agonizing, as can the tall fissures. However, no matter how many challenges it presents, the Pin Parvati Pass hike is exhilarating enough to make it one of the most sought after Himalayan Pass high altitude hikes.
