In the first week of the November 2020, I and my friend were discussing about our next trip. We haven't been to any trips since long time, because there was a lot of travel restriction in the country due to Covid19. We usually go on Himalayan treks every year. Since we already had an experience of Himalayan trek, this time my friend was interested in the Chadar Trek. But I was not mentally ready for the Chadar trek because of its cold temperature. But he convinced me to take up this challenge and we finally decided to do this trek this season. It was already the first week of November, trek was starting on the first week of January. We just had only two months of time to prepare for the trek. We started our fitness preparation. We shared our plans with other friends who were interested in joining us. Finally, I, Vinayak and Mahathi booked our trek with one of the tour companies and booked our flights. When we had a week time for the trip, Mahathi dropped off due to personal reasons .
About Chadar Frozen River Trek :
The Chadar Trek, wildest in India and one of the most daunting ones in the world, is a whole new world in itself. A place like no other on the Earth and an experience to remember for a lifetime, this frozen river trek is on every trekker and adventure lovers bucket list.
The trail is extremely difficult and chilling because of the climatic conditions of the place during winters. The temperature during the winters drops down to -30 to -35 degrees and the daytime isn't much of a relief either.
