Chadar Trek height is similar to Leh which is at a height of 11,480 feet (3500 meters). Any place above 8000 feet you are susceptible for AMS i.e Altitude Mountain syndrome specially if you dont have proper fitness. The cold Leh ladakh temperature which dips till -25 C at night adds to the deteriorating health of trekkers.
