Chadar Trek – Fancy a real adventure trek with breathtaking views? The Chadar Frozen River Trek Package is your best bet. This trek covers a staggering 55 km one-way, with an average of 15-17 km per day. The winter snowfall closes most mountain passes and the ‘Chadar,’ meaning blanket refers to the frozen Zanskar river which becomes the only way for the residents near Zanskar to connect with the rest of the world. At times, the temperature drops to -30 to -35 degree Celsius. Despite the freezing temperatures, the sun and the blue skies are up by 7:00 am and that’s when our day begins. While most of the trekking will be done on the frozen river, chadar or the normal trail used by the people in Zanskar, sometimes we will climb icy rocks or trails.

As most roads are blocked during winters, the air is the only way to reach Ladakh. The temperatures in Leh will always be in the negatives, so wear your warm clothes in the flight itself to avoid the drastic drop in temperatures from affecting you as you descend from the flight. Leh is immersed in snow and at times the roads will also be hidden under a thick sheet of ice. Due to this, the city will only be partly open. Only the shops catering to local needs will be open and hence, buy all your gears from your city. Overnight stay.
The day is reserved for acclimatization and rest. Also, you may opt for half-day sightseeing of the city to visit famous attractions like Shanti Stupa, Hall of fame, Leh Palace, Local monasteries and other places. Overnight stay in the hotel.
