Chadar Trek Ladakh

"Every travel with WANDERERS is an experience of a life time."

This is the most thrilling and adventurous trek and one of our team's favorite as well. There is no better way to experience the Zanskar Valley. Chadar Trek (bed sheet) as the name suggests denotes a thick sheet of ice that forms over the Zanskar river. Chadar trek is meant for seasoned trekkers as it is a vigorous trek and walking throughout on the snow adds to the difficulty as well. We will experience extreme conditions while trekking here and subzero temperatures as well. We also suggest getting ready for the trek prior to the trek.

Day 1 :
Arriving at Leh. We will spend the day in the hotel. Acclimatization is the most important part for this trek.
We suggest short walk around the town or else staying at the hotel.

Day 2 :
The drive post breakfast, is going to be one of the best scenic drives of your life with first views of Indus river followed by the Zanskar river. We will spend a few minutes at the confluence of both the reives at Nimoo and continue to drive to Tilat Do. We will from here start our trek. Try to get on the other side of the river and camp for the day.
