Zanskar Valley is known for its trekking trails, views and sceneries, cave monasteries and river rafting experiences and the Suru Valley. Nestled between two tiny alpine lakes, most isolated of all Himalayan valleys, it is located on the eastern corner of Jammu & Kashmir state and is separated from Ladakh by Zanskar mountain range. The Zanskar valley is situated at an elevation of 13,154 ft. above sea level. Once you visit this wonderland, you will just fall in love with its wide-open vistas, fresh aqua blue water streams gushing through the valley, the compelling aura of total remoteness and the massive glaciers which appear to be just a touch away, Zanskar is known for its clear waters. This valley seems to be cut off from the rest of the world for over 9 months of the year. Trekking is the main reason as to why people visit Zanskar.
Summer days are pleasant at the Zanskar Valley; however, nights can turn a bit chilly. April to August are considered to be the good months although the weather can be a bit unreliable during early summers, so July to August would be an ideal time to visit. Winters are too cold to travel in Zanskar.
