Chadar Trek 2018 - Limited Time offer till August 31

Chadar Trek is one of the most challenging yet fulfilling journeys one can ever take in Ladakh region. Apart from its breathtaking beauty which allows the trekkers rare glimpses of the unreachable ranges of the uppermost section of the Himalayas, it tests the trekker’s determination and physical stamina to a great degree.

The temperature during most of Chadar Trek remains around minus five to twenty degree Celsius at the least and the trekkers must also occasionally climb the steep rocks, and take detours to avoid perilous sections of the Zanskar River. While this Chadar trek is not for everyone; if one is adamant enough to experience the supernatural beauty of the highest levels of the Himalayas, unseen by almost everyone on this planet and is willing to go through tough ordeals to achieve it, nothing can be more suitable for such an adventurous soul.

Brief Itinerary:

Day 1: Arrive at Leh | Stay in Guest House

Arrive at Leh and check into our Guest House. Leh is a high altitude desert and it takes at least a day to acclimatise to these conditions. So rest in your room and in the evening roam around Leh market. Leh is a culturally rich place. There are dozens of monasteries and ancient temples that you can go around. Woollen cap and Gloves are must and should be handy. Overnight stay in Leh.

Day 2: Drive to Chilling roadhead and trek to Tilad Do camp - (3100 mts.) | 65 km Drive - Camp Stay

Post breakfast we will drive to Chilling from where we will start our Chadar Trek. The drive to Chilling – the starting point of Chadar trek is an adventurous drive. The ride is along the river Indus via village Nimu the place  which is the confluence of  the river Indus and the Zanskar. To reach camp one needs to cross the frozen Zanskar.

Day 3: Tilad Do to Shingra Koma - (3170 mts.) | 10 km Trek - Camp Stay

The trek leaders will give a briefing about the day as it will be a long walking session for 10 km on the Chadar. The weather gets to decide about this day’s trek. It can be cold and hard surface to walk on. Imoratant thing is to follow the leader, as they will know where to step and not to. Ice can be thick and thin sometimes, the locals have the sixth sense to step on the Chadar properly. As time goes by you will get used to the walking on the Chadar. Lunch at Gyalpo, a porter-cum-cooks prepares the hot and soupy noodles. The fluid intake must be balanced to circulated the blood in your system during the trek.

Camp-site of that day is at Gyalpo, the place is surrounded with peaks and beautiful viewsof rocks around. There wil be a early dinner served and call it a night. 

Day 4: Shingra Koma to Tibb Cave – (3225 mts.) | Trek 15 km - Camp Stay 

Today we will start our trek after a nutritious breakfast.Today’s stretch of the Chadar Trek is around 14 km. Our destination for the day is Dib Cave. Dib Cave is big cave which provides shelter. We welcome you to the cave with a hot cup of ladakhi butter tea. Overnight stay at Dib Cave.

Day 5: Tibb cave to Naerak camp – (3390 mts) | Trek 12.5 km - Camp Stay

Today we trek over deep gorges under the frozen Zanskar. You can hear the sound of water flowing beneath it. After trekking for a few hours we reach a huge waterfall. An old, dilapidated bridge on the river, which villagers claim to be more than 1,000 years old, marks Naerak.

Day 6: Naerak to Tibb Cave - (3225 mts.) | 12.5 km Trek - Camp Stay

Naerak to Dibb: The same way back? Well technically ,yes. In fact the Chadar changes by the minute, and the colors and perspectives all change. The Zanskar River reacts to the slightest change of temperature, and constantly keeps repackaging itself. The Chadar would have assumed a completely new form, and will it will almost be impossible to say whether you have been here before. Overnight stay in Dib Cave.

We continue walking in the gorge, which is inaccessible in any other season and we come across some stunning frozen waterfalls.
