Chadar Trek Is Definitely A Walk You Will
Remember For All Your Life
Dont you think the title is enough to describe
the beauty of the place we are going to talk
about? Are not talking total sense! The Zanskar
Chadar Trek in Ladakh, let us assure you that
theres something which will arm you with
immense attraction and calmness and make every
bit of your life worth! The gigantic mountain
blocks the chilly ways, a sheet of snow
comfortably conquer a wild river underneath, and
blood-chilling temperature in that territory
which spans 75 km long trek. If adventure is not
your type? Then hit this place to get the best as
this trek will brainwash your mind to think of
adventure now itself. Chadar- a sheet of ice on
Zanskar river

Via cloudinary.com Chadar means sheet, right?
So, chadar trek is all about the thick sheet of
ice, which sometimes becomes the slave of the
ever-ferocious Zanskar River and the
civilization living beyond the valleys and
ravines of the valley get hidden by snow. And
then the ice on this river allows residents of
this remote valley to reach out to the world in
case of emergencies. Trekking at various places
is a passion or fantasy but Chadar is out of this
world. Its the closest you can get to walk on a
glacier. The difficulty level is on another
height, the thrill-o-meter, the experience tops
all the treks you could ever imagine. The
absolute idea of a successful expedition on these
large snow stones detached from the surrounding
land is unparalleled. Its not just a trek, its
a dream world bucket full of rejuvenation of a
different kind. And if you want to be a part of
it, you need sheer carefulness and
preparation. The best time to do Chadar trek?

roads on way to Chadar trek January and
February in the middle of January till late
February that one can have the pleasure of raw
thrill of walking on a frozen river. Usually,
the trek takes 9-10 days, and one has to cover a
minimum of 16-18 km per day. 1,300 feet above
sea level, a bone-freezing bizarre surrounding,
and a violent river ready to break the ground at
any time it wishes- all of this is ready for a
distance of almost 75 km to Zanskar Valley. We
are sure, you are not planning to explore this
heavenly trek in your sandals with a stick in
one hand and a portable speaker in other. It
really needs all the preparations in the world of
trekking and someone should start preparing with
at least a month. So here are some tips from an
average trekker Things that are must be carrying

  • Via cnn.com
  • Things essential to carry for Chadar trek-
  • Take all the accessories you need. Buy gumboots
    as normal hiking boots are not enough.
  • They stop the feet from frostbite. Remember, not
    to get wet easily and
  • cost INR 400.

    body warmers, flask bottles, exothermic pouches,
    trekking rods, a couple of sleeping bags are
    some of the most basic things.
  • Spend 400 bucks. The extra pair of socks,
    waterproof gloves, body warmers, flask bottles,
    exothermic pouches, trekking rods, some sleeping

Via ytimg.com red If you have never visited a
trek that requires adaptation, we then recommend
you to take it more seriously this time. For
January Trek, we suggest you spent at least 2-3
days in the winter of North India. Unless you
are camping and hiking with proper gears on in
subzero conditions (-8 to -5 C on average)
conditions, you will feel that the cold is just
what brain thinks or says. Physical fitness is
important. Start working and build some stamina
before going you head towards Chadar. After all,
you are going to experience some of the rarest
heights. How to reach the starting point?

Via himalayanfootslog.com An aerial view of the
snow-covered Leh airport To reach Zanskar, the
only way is through the air. The nearest airport
is Leh and all the flights are on the ground
before noon. Be ready to come out of your plane
because bone-freezing temperatures are waiting
for you on the vast distance of white ice. From
here you go to Chiling (64 km) from the road and
then start the trek for about 2 hours to Tilat
Sumdo which is the starting point. Trek to
Zanskar A Walk to Remember
7
Via ortraitnpainting.com One of the most
intriguing adventures on earth, this trek is a
gripping journey that goes through some of the
most breathtaking panoramas on Earth. There is a
campsite for the trek, Tilat Sumdo. Its the
confluence of Zanskar and a small stream. The
trek starts from here. The next comes is the
Shingra Koma, which is about 10 km from Sumdo.
After Koma, on the second day, comes one of the
most beautiful spots of the Chadar trek Tibb.
Tibb is full of caves and waterfalls. The caves
are used for night stays and waterfalls are used
for framing some of the most scenic vistas of
the most picturesque landscapes of the Himalayas
in Zanskar valley. The Nerak follows Tibet on
the third day and on the 4th day comes with
another campsite called Gyalpo. On a tilt in the
river, this beautiful place is full of the walls
of rock like human faces. Here is the Dreamlike
is the apt word to explain the sights
here! Trek goes through the Dibyok ma on the 5th
and 6th day and ends at Ling shed by the 8/9th
day. In Ladhak, Ling shed is one of the oldest
villages youll find there. One of the oldest
monasteries in the world is part of this village.
It is one of the most beautiful places on the
trek. Local people have opened their home to the
tourists.

The Extraordinary Stop
  • Via triphippie.com
  • But hold on, what about lodging and food? Not to
    worry, all trek organizers take care of camping
    and food.
  • Another popular accommodation option making
    headway to the Zanskar Valley is cave camping.
    In some of the most beautiful nights, exactly in
    the middle of nowhere, there is definitely no
    extraordinary experience other than dining and
    living in caves.
  • But apart from adventures, there are many
    homestays that are simple and warm when you walk
    along the Chadar Trek.
  • So, before backpack to the one of the most
    fascinating, mysterious, and magical trek, here
    are some of the points to keep in mind.

Control that adrenaline rush for a good period of
time. If something doesnt work then do not lose
heart. Follow the local people. They know best
of the Trek. Do not do anything which locals are
not doing. Take care of the peace with falling
and failing. You will slip on the ice and will
have to get up - this will be the case for the
first few days. Take enough food and drink water,
food may fall short. Keep a handy first aid kit.
Bring your meds as the cuts and injuries are
something youll often face. Things not to do on
Chadar Trek Dont underestimate the weather
reports. Keep sync with MET records. Not having
food is the last thing you would want to do. Trek
is demanding and it will be needing strength and
you need to be on your toes even when youre
asleep. Don't try to ignore the guide. Follow
them religiously. Do not litter, dont use soap
in the waterfall for the obvious reasons. Dont
overstress. When you feel, a break is required,
take a break. The Experience
