about trekking at chadar trek

Imagine Trekking at Chadar Trek? Stretches of landscape devoid of human population, surrounded by Himalayas and Karakoram, two of the highest mountain ranges in the world, simply calls out for an exploration on foot. Attracting a lot of adventure seekers every year, the mountains of Leh promise exciting opportunities of trekking, rock climbing and rappelling. A dry, rugged terrain, steep mountain slopes and deep valleys sum up Leh and if the idea of trekking in such a place excites you, hop on to the next flight. Regardless of the trek route, trekking in Leh is a thrilling affair, every minute filled with exhilarating tiredness and sense of wonder at the jaw dropping scenery. 

Trekking at Chadar Trek
is one of the most adventurous trek routes in Leh yet. Possible only from mid January to the end of February, the 9 days trek involves crossing Zanskar river that has frozen semisolid. The route begins at Chilling village and takes you past a steep canyon. While it all sounds adventurous and very romantic, be aware that the trek will involve sleeping in natural caves in the canyon's walls, walking near chilling, flowing river water and dagger-like icicles hanging overhead at various points.

There are a number of at Trekking at Chadar Trek and you can take your pick from the Lamayuru Padum Trek, Lamayuru Darcha Trek, Rupshu Kibber Trek, Stok Hemis Trek and many others, depending upon the difficulty levels and the duration you are willing to undertake. Be aware that you are unlikely to come across any human settlement for miles on end and you will have to carry sleeping bags, food, fuel and tents on your back. It is advisable to trek only in groups as venturing on these arduous treks alone is a risky affair. As the path steepens, the air will get thinner and the weight you are carrying heavier. Expect muscle aches, shortness of breath and altitude sickness, but the landscape you make your way through is all worth the fatigue and aches that eventually lodges deep in your bones.
