Day 1

Chadar trek is one of a kind adventure. Here distance is not the challenge but to get through the chilling cold of ladhak. The nights can drop upto - 30  degrees centigrade here. Once acclimatised  it is a lot of fun in here.
So day one starts with arriving at leh and starting with the acclimatisation. Drinking a lots of water,yes warm water and not sleeping the whole day just staying inside. Well doesn't look like fun but a day to make new friends.

Day 4

From this day for next five days its fun on ice. Experience of a life time. Right from falling on  the ice to shivering in the cold from to struggle to empty the bowls to trying not to freeze. This is one journey which cannot be described in words. One has to experience it first
