Chadar - Frozen River Trek

Experience the amazing feeling of "walking on a River"

Yes it is doable only in the Zanskar Valley of the Himalayas. This is where the River Zanskar freezes to become a Chadar (frozen river). (Chadar is a Hindi word meaning Bedsheet).

Rated as the BEST TREK & Must do once in your life across the world. This is your last chance to do this trek.

Chadar Trek – 2015

Day 1: Arrive in Leh by morning flight to give more acclimatization time

Leh can be reached only through Air during winters, Temperatures in Leh vary from -10degrees to -15degrees in the winter months of January. It is important for the trekkers to plan their clothing even for the flight. As soon as you get down from the flight the cold wind will affect the people who are landing from lower altitudes. Hence you are required to plan your clothing in advance.  Please ensure you wear thermals + winter jackets + woolen caps even while exiting the aircraft.

This day will be reserved for acclimatization.
