A great place for Photo Stop. We then drive down from Nimu following the track parallel to the frozen Zanskar River.

TREK FROM NERAK TO DIBB

After breakfast proceed for trek to Dibb. Though technically it is the same way back, it is also quite different. The Chadar or the blanket of ice that is forming on the River Zanskar is always changing, breaking up and forming itself again. As the Chadar dynamics are ever changing, the same route and place would look and feel different as the texture and conditions change. Night stay at Dibb in Tent.
