Chadar is a lifeline to Zanskari people, which connects them to the rest of the country, in fact the Ladakh region and its people, during winter. 
Chadar is  mostly walking on ice sheets formed from the flowing water river of Zanskar. Zanskari people praise the Chadar trail rather than complaining to Almighty for being isolated from rest of the country during winter, as it gives them an opportunity to spend most of their time with their family and friends, cheering Local butter tea and playing local games during winter. The Chadar also gives them an opportunity in income generation and livelihood. The Zanskari feel proud in leading the trekkers for Chadar, which also makes them the finest guides in exploring and experimenting with new and challenging routes. The Zanskari will tell you the mountain ghost stories and the deities which protects the Zanskari from failing during the harsh winter.
