It is that season of the year where most are pepped up and ready to take on winter, it is the time to venture into our domain. The months of January and February see the formation of ice layer in one of the heavenly destinations on the planet LEH. Yes, it is time for #CHADAR TREK in #LADAKH. Every year thousands of people visit this #roof of the world for the most famous trek on river #Zanskar. Come experience this amazing and chilling trek in any one of our organised fixed departures.
#Chadar trek package if of 8 nights and 9 Days ex Leh. Depending upon your dates from our fixed departure lists one can complete this trek in about 10 days until you reach your home town. The first 3 nights are spent in Leh to acclimatise and gear for the trek after which you spend 4 nights on the trek. Once completed you may want to spend another night in the cozy comfort of hot water and internet in Leh finally departing for your home town the next day. One can choose to stay more and do local sight seeing if time permits. This unique landscape and its experience is not to be missed. Our suggestion would be of choosing minimum 10 nights 11 days if you want to explore this region.
It remains a point of discussion as to who can trek at -30 degrees through the Himalayas. Well over the years we have seen numerous first time trekkers completing the tour and regular bikers leaving on first day. Overall, this trek demands a high level of endurance towards cold temperatures, regular exposure to cold for almost 10 days, good stamina and a solid state of mind. Remember, where there is a will there's a way !!! If you think you have it in you then this trek is for you. We even have had people taking safe dip in the freezing cold water of the Zanskar on the last day, as a goodbye gesture.
A sound mind and lot of reading about the Geography should make your trek easier. Information on how to remain warm in different environment will be beneficial, talk to us if you want any answers after all we take pride in sharing our experiences. A must is the discussion with your doctor and get to know from him how your body will cope with such high altitude and walking. The government has made it mandatory to undergo health check up after you get acclimated in Leh before your trek. In addition to this, mandatory medical insurance is helpful in any eventuality.
