ABOUT THE TREK
Chadar Trek in Ladakh takes on a trekking aspect and puts on a thick ice sheet his own element of intense adventure. The Zanskar river freezes in Ladakh in the winter months, creates a sort of ice layer, which is why it is called ‘Chadar.’ After arriving in Leh, you can go shopping on the market at Leh before the fitness officials will prepare for the very difficult trek in the Himalayas. Chadar’s trekking journey is built in such a way that you will be trekking nearly 65 km north.
You will be transferred from Leh to Shingra Yokma via chilling and Tilad to walk the ice sheet for your first time. You can still be acclimatized with the temperature below zero here, and you can find out where you can better plant your foot on the ground. Due to its extreme temperatures, the frozen Zanskar river trektop has taken shape, and it is important to take plenty of time and care. The next day is your final day for physical escapes from the wild card.
Following this the trek will take you to many points as you walk along the Chadar Frozen river trail, taking you to Tibb Cave and the Naerak, to the village of Tibb and its mighty frozen waterfalls. When you walk around, you will reach the Tibb Cave, Gyalpo and Shingra Yokma, and return to Leh, putting the journey to an end on the following day.
TIPS FOR THE TREK
- Make your mind ready first: it’s a rough ride for many limbs. From the temperature and physical demands. Train your mind to expect the sub zero level and accept it. Keep in mind that there’s a life here too; Chadar has been the only way to get to Leh in winter for decades. Your strength of mind will demonstrate the resilience to the cold ascent to your body.
- Keep a woolen hat and gloves: practically during the night, you have to sleep well to keep the next day’s trek cold. Keep your sleeper cozy throughout the night with an isolating bottle of water. To keep it warm enough, use the sidetrap inside your pockets.
- Observe and move: locals will show you how to cross the lake at your feet firsthand. You will find, after careful inspection, that they go quickly and take Penguin like measures on the surface. When you watch them, you learn how to maneuver on the ice blanket and learn when you are smarter to hesitate than to proceed or to do the contrary.
- Keep your electronics warm, because of an incredibly cold atmosphere, electronics will destroy. Keep them warm by holding them in your pockets closer to your body that makes them warm and sturdy.
