I signed up solo for this adventure with Trek the Himalaya. Our group survived and conquered the Chadar in spite of the ever-changing weather and ice formation on the river. Despite the mismanagement and negligence of the tour operator we survived, and that itself, in my opinion, made us all WINNERS.
Having said all of the above, the 8 days on the Chadar were by far the deadliest, but then again, I've never felt that alive ever!
This one is definitely not for beginners. But if you consider yourself physically and mentally strong enough to withstand the harshest conditions of mother nature, this is your challenge. In return, you'll get an epic story of legends that you'll be proud to narrate to your grandchildren, who sadly might not get to experience the Chadar, thanks to Global Warming.
If you have any questions, please leave a message in the comments below and I shall be glad to help you plan your trip as much as I can.
