Chadar Trek  is one of the most challenging and also one of the most beautiful treks in the Zanskar region of Indian Himalayas.

During winter, Zanskar gets cut off from the rest of the state. The Pensi La, which is the usual route from Ladakh to Zanskar gets snowed out, making vehicular traffic impossible at this time of the year. For years now, the frozen Zanskar river has been the only way for the people of Zanskar to make contact with the outside world in winter. It used to be a busy trade route back in the day. The Zanskari used to visit Leh to trade butter, cheese and animal hide for household items such as food grains and clothes.

Though the Zanskaris are self sufficient these days, there are still a lot of the locals who use this route, keeping the tradition alive. The frozen Zanskar river thus got its name – the Chadar, a magnificent white sheet of ice and snow which flows through some of the most rugged rock faces. And this setting makes it one of the most stunning treks in the world.

Chadar Trek  is a walk on the frozen Zanskar River where temperatures drop down to -35 degrees at night in winter. The ration and all equipments required for the trek are all transported on sledges. The real magic exists below your feet and you are unlikely to have seen anything quite as remarkable as this frozen river stretching far away out of sight. Watching the spell-binding panorama as you walk will give you memories that you will cherish forever.

The highlight of the chadar trek  is a beautiful frozen waterfall that you will see near Nerak village. Hidden between two hillocks is this natural formation of a 50ft frozen waterfall masterpiece which can only be seen to be believed.  You get to know the culture of the people living in this region up close through the locals you meet on the trek and also our support staff as most of them are from Zanskar. The best time to do the chadar trek now is from January to February.

Altitude Adventure India is one of  the best chadar trek organizers in India.

Reporting day at Leh (9,800 FT, 0 Kms Trek)

You will arrive by air as there is no road connectivity to Leh in the winter months. Before you land get you get a beautiful bird’s eye view of the entire city and the layers of snow-clad mountains. Ensure that you carry your woolens in your hand baggage and wear them before you exit the plane as you will be greeted with sub zero temperature even during day time. Leh airport is one of the highest airports in the world and also very picturesque but you can’t click any photos as it is a defense airport. When you exit the airport you have a pre-paid taxi corner on the left of he gate where you need to mention your guest house (Name will be given to you) and the taxi will drop you safely to the guest house. The drive is no more than 15 minutes as Leh is a small town with all guest houses near to the airport. Relax at your guesthouse and explore the market post noon. Get used to the cold weather by going outdoors so that it would be easier for you on the trek if you get acclimatized to the cold. Leh is quite in the winters and very few shops and eateries are open for business. Take a stroll through the colourful Leh market during the day and buy your woolens or any other items if you have missed before leaving home. During your stay, drink plenty of fluids in any form including soups, lemon tea, black tea or just plain water during the day to help your acclimatization.

Day 2
Rest & Acclimatization in Leh (9,800 FT, 0 Kms Trek)

This is your second day of acclimatization. As per the regulations and keeping in mind the health problems that trekkers might face related to Altitude and Cold, anyone doing the Chadar Trek should spend at least three days in Leh for the body to get fully acclimatized to the weather conditions. It is now mandatory and is to be strictly followed by every trekker. Trekkers can spend the day by visiting the places around the city. Drink plenty of fluids in any form including soups, lemon tea, black tea or just plain water during the day to help your acclimatization.

Day 3
Getting a medical check-up at SNM Hospital in Leh

This is your third day &final day of acclimatization. From 2019 onwards, the local administrations has made it mandatory for every participant to acclimatize in Leh for 3 days. Today you will undergo a medical examination at the SNM Hospital in Leh prior to the Trek. They will issue a fitness certificate after the examination and only those who have this certificate will be allowed to Trek. This is done keeping in mind the health problems that trekkers might face related to altitude and cold during the Chadar trek. This is for your own safety and it is to be strictly followed by every trekker. Read our blog about preparing for the Chadar trek so that you can clear the fitness test easily.

Day 4
Leh to Shingra Koma via Chilling (10,550 FT, 70 Kms

Today we leave in our vehicles and drive towards Chilling and further to Shingra. The drive is quite scenic and you get to see the beautiful Indus river on the way and also the confluence of the Indus and Zanskar river at Nimmu. We cover a total distance of 70 kms by road and It should take about 2 hours to reach Shingra. This is the point where the road ends and you will leave the vehicle, collect your backpack and start walking towards the river. As soon as you put your foot on the frozen Zanskar river you will get excited about your trek. Your leaders will soon give you tips on how to walk on Chadar. It takes a while to get the hang of it. It is called the ‘Penguin Walk’ as you need to drag or shuffle your feet the way penguins do. Walk around as much as possible in this style before the trek begins as it will help you get comfortable walking on glassy ice sheet. As the trek begins, you will fall a few times till you fully understand the different ice forms and patterns. Slowly you will know which surface is brittle and which is solid and you will not fall. Falling and learning to walk on the Chadar is all part of the overall trek experience. After couple of hours of trek, you will reach your first campsite at Shingra Koma. You will reach the camp site before sundown. Ensure that you cover yourself with extra layers after reaching the campsite as cold winds start immediately after sundown. Have your dinner and fill your thermos with warm water before you go to sleep . All liquids tend to freeze in this region given the extreme temperatures, so a thermos is extremely important as you may wake up in the night feeling thirsty.

Day 5
Shingra Koma to Tibb Cave (10,760 FT, 14 Kms)

After spending a cold night in the tent, you will be delighted to hear the call for a morning tea from our support staff. The Zanskari people are well known for their hospitality and they will wake up way before you to ensure you have a hot cup of morning tea in the tent. They will also give you a wholesome breakfast and reactivate your energy in the morning in such sub-zero conditions. Today you start trekking towards Tibb cave which is our next campsite. This trek route has some of the most attention-grabbing frozen waterfalls that one can encounter. It also going to be a long walking session, as you will cover a total 14 kms (approx 6-7 hours) on the Chadar. Marvel at the views as you walk in this huge valley with the Zanskar river flowing in the middle. The river is vibrant as it flows by and the color of the water is deep blue. Sometimes you will see water flowing right beneath you under the thick ice sheet. Our staff will cook you a warm meal mid-way to Tibb cave and give you a hot cup of tea after the meal. You’ll be at Tibb around 3 pm. Tibb cave is encircled by dry sand and your tents will be pitched somewhere around the sandy area. Walk around the camp area to keep yourself and also remember to add your layers nearing sundown.

Day 6
Tibb Cave to Nerak (11,150 FT, 12 KMs trek)

Today it is going to be another long day, so you will start early to move towards Nerak which is the most anticipated campsite of the trek. At Nerak you will get to see a wonderful natural formation, a frozen waterfall approx. 50 feet high, which has become iconic with the Chadar trek. We aim to reach Nerak campsite before 3pm, so you get plenty of time at the Nerak frozen waterfall. Hot lunch will be served on your way to the campsite. Nerak is the coldest campsite on the trek where the temperature can down to -35 degrees at night. Trekkers are advised to wear proper layers to stay safe from the freezing cold. Nerak campsite is 15-20 minutes before the waterfall. Once we reach the camp site. we will have some snacks and then make our way to the gigantic Nerak frozen waterfall. Right next to the waterfall is a bridge across the river, which takes you up to Nerak village. If time permits you may go to Nerak village, else marvel at the beauty of the frozen waterfall and click few pictures before heading back to the campsite for dinner. Camp overnight at Nerak.

Day 7
Nerak to Lingshed Village (15 KMs trek)

From Nerak we depart for the picturesque Lingshed Village. You will walk on the nearby small mountains to reach Lingshed . We aim to reach Lingshed before 4pm. Explore the village and click pictures before returning back for dinner. Today your accommodation will be in Home Stay.

Day 8
Lingshed Village to Nerka (15 KMs trek)

Day 9
Nerak to Shingra Koma

Today, we trace our trace our steps back to Tibb campsite and further to Shingra Koma. Even though the route remains unchanged, it’s amazing to see how different it appears while we return. This is because the river can rapidly react to any change in the temperature. By this time the icy river might have taken a completely new form. You may not be able to recognize few sights, as it all seems so different on the way back. You might walk on a glass like surface or patches of slush, depending on the weather. You are now more confident of walking on the way back and there is less probability of falling. Admire the beauty of the valley as you walk confidently looking around and click pictures. On the return journey, observe the local porters and their traditional attire. They wear traditional woolen robes called ‘Gonchas’, with colourful beads around their neck and their traditional hats. It’s fascinating to see the locals swiftly walking on Chadar, as they seem to glide like the wind, absolutely comfortable with the slippery uneven icy surface. Greet them in their local phrase ‘Julley’ which is the Ladakhi term for hello/welcome. You might also catch a few locals singing traditional ladakhi songs while pulling their sledges and enjoying the journey. Camp overnight at Shingra Koma.

Day 10
Shingra Koma to Shingra/Tilad Do and drive back to Leh

Today we start early after having a hot breakfast for Shingra / TilatDo. En route you will get a chance to see high mountains and may get to observe pug marks of wild animals like ibex and foxes. If you are lucky enough, you just might spot a snow leopard; and in any case you don’t, then at least be sure, you would be watched by them. Today is your last day at the Chadar and a feeling of missing this beautiful landscape will slowly creep in and you would wish that the trek doesn’t end. When you reach Shingra, it is time to say goodbye to the Zanskar Valley. Vehicles are waiting for you to take to Leh. Some trekkers want to celebrate and instinctively take a dip in the river. This is best avoided as you may not be used to such cold water. As you head back to the hotels in your vehicles you cant help but remember the entire experience like a movie projection in front of your eyes. Reach Leh and stay over nite at your guest house.

Day 11
Checkout 10.00am from Leh. Fly to your desired destination

The journey comes to an end. You get ready to depart and say goodbye after having your morning breakfast. Return back home with lifetime of memories

The Chadar Trek is a moderate trek suitable for first time trekker with basic to above average fitness. The trail is fairly laid out path and doesn’t not have any steep ascends or descends. Water is easily available throughout the trail.

But, at high altitude as the air gets thinner oxygen is less abundant and you will find difficult to breathe. However, the human body has adaptations to altitude that allow it to partially compensate for the lack of oxygen provided you give sufficient time to acclimitise. We have given 3 days in the itinerary to sufficiently acclimatize your body to high attitude and weather conditions.

Trekking Experience: Prior trekking experience is helpful for this trek but not necessary.

Fitness Required: A high altitude trek in the Himalayas requires considerable fitness. Your body needs to train itself to process more work with lower levels of oxygen. Cardiovascular training before a trek is critically important.

Though the trek is in the Moderate category prior training is mandatory before attempting the trek. Registering for the trek is an understanding that you will undertake the mandated fitness training. Altitude Adventure has the right to reject candidates who do not meet our eligibility requirement at the base camp.

Our trek itinerary is planned in a way that on an average you have to cover around 12 kms in 8 hours although there may be slight variation depending on the terrain. This works out to roughly 1.5 kms per hour which is equivalent to walking in the plains at 6 kms per hour.

Here is the training schedule to prepare for the trek.

You can train yourself to run 3 kms in 30 minutes as per the schedule given below. Remember always start your training program with stretching and warm up exercises.

Stretching: Stretch your hamstrings, quadriceps, hip flexors, lower back muscles and shoulders.

Training schedule for 1 Month:

Week 1: Start with 10 minute of brisk walk and then jog for 10 minutes and finally 10 minutes of easy walk.

Week 2: 5 minutes of brisk walk 15 minutes of jog 5 minutes of easy walk

Week 3: 5 minutes of brisk walk 15 minutes of jog 5 minutes of easy walk

Week 4: 5 minutes of brisk walk and jog for 25 min and cool down your body

If you are somebody who prefers cycling over running, then try to cover 22 km in 60 minutes.

Record your run on an app like Nike Run or Sports Tracker to have a better understanding of your routine. Start recording your run when you start running. At the end of your run, hit the stop button. Review your run on the app to see how you performed on that day and continuously monitor your progress

Note: Make sure your GPS is on when you record your run.

Strength Training – There is a lot of trekking distance that you will cover in high altitude carrying your backpacks.  It could be taxing for your legs. For this, strengthening your legs will help. You can do some squats to strengthen them. Start with 2 sets of squats with 8 squats in each set and work towards 4 sets of squats with 20 in each set in 4 weeks.

Given below is our cancellation policy.

If a trek is called off by us at the last moment due to a natural calamity/ unforeseen circumstances (like rains, earthquake, landslides, strike, bandh, curfew, etc), Altitude Adventure India will issue a trek voucher for the full amount. The voucher can be redeemed for the same trek or another trek in the next one year.

If you cancel your trek, the cancellation charges are as given below:

  • Cancellations prior to 30 days from the start of the trek –full refund.
  • Cancellation between 30 days and 20 days to the start of the trek –50% refund.

Please note:

Refunds will be processed within 7-10 working days from the date of cancellation.

In case of refund, there will be a deduction of 5% (bank charges) from the total fee you have paid.

If you wish to cancel your trek, please e-mail us on [email protected] or fill the Trip Cancellation form.  Cancellation requests are not taken over phone.

Juts take care of Mountain Sickness and rest will be taken care of Altitude Adventure India team. They are truly the best for Chadar Trek. Thank-you and all d best...
  17. I am so happy I chose AAI for Chadar trek
    Ghanshyam Doifode19th August, 2019

    The fun I had with Altitude Adventure India cannot be explained in words. They give good importance for fitness and trek preparation before arriving in Leh. Just follow their fitness plan and go for it. It will help you to enjoy the trek more and change the way you see nature. This trek changed by perception about the locals and I could understand their way of life in a better way. Many more good things happened during the trek which cannot be explained but only felt. I am so happy I chose Altitude Adventure India for Chadar trek. Stay happy and stay blessed.
  18. Trek guides and entire team is always supportive & encouraging
    Rakesh Bahuguna19th August, 2019

    Chadar trek is the most adventurous and exciting trek and I am glad I chose Altitude Adventure India for my maiden trek. There team is a group of motivators and we were like a family from day 1 to day 9. Their trek guides and entire team is always supportive and encouraging. Much thanks to the cook who made such yummy food and the porters who carried all the trek equipments. They are the true heroes of Chadar Trek. If I have to trek again in Ladakh I will trek with this group only because we became a family. Thank you Altitude Adventure India for such a wonderful journey on chadar. Happy Trekking.
  19. Best Support Team
    Rohit K31st January, 2019

    Very helpful support team. When i called out at night to help with a small issue they came readily. The team was very fit and perfectly capable. Till the end of the trek at Chilling, the trekking team spent good time with us. Very nice people.
  20. Very Cooperative
    Anita P31st January, 2019

    I had to offload my baggage and though they had mentioned restrictions on size and weight, i found they are very flexible. In the end i paid very less for the offloaded bag. But they are very strict with fitness requirements and this is good for us only. I look forward to doing more treks with AAI.
  21. Superb arrangement & Food
    Kalpana K29th January, 2019

    This Chadar trek was one of the most memorable trips of my life and the credit i will give to Altitude Adventure India. The arrangement at such extreme climatic conditions was just superb. Our trek staff were very caring and supportive. Food was fabulous with hot lunch provided everyday on trek. I would like to specially thank our cook for such tasty food.
  22. Memorable Chadar
    Preeti S28th January, 2019

    Thoroughly enjoyed the Chadar trek. This was my first winter trek and I loved the experience of walking on a frozen river. Arrangements by Altitude Adventure India were perfect given the cold conditions. Our trek leader and guide was great, making the trek memorable.
  23. Caring People
    Trupti J27th January, 2019

    I liked that the team and people are not very commercial and the support team really cared for giving us the experience of our lifetime at the Chadar. I really thank them and definitely my next treks will be with Altitude Adventure India. Keep up it up guys…Thanks!!
  24. Tested our Limits
    Vikas Chand24th September, 2018

    Chadar trek was a great experience and it tested our limits. With Altitude Adventure India, it looked easier because they took care of things very well. The best part was the food- it was amazing. Our trek leader was very motivating and was looking into every little issue we had and he was very supportive. The entire team of Altitude Adventure India was very supportive.
  25. Personally learned a lot
    Manohar Malve25th August, 2018

    Chadar trek was really awesome. I personally learnt a lot from the trek and the trek lead. Altitude Adventure India provided us with good services. The entire team is a group of concerned mountain lovers.
  26. Most organized and caring trek company
    Kiran Pal20th August, 2018

    Altitude Adventure India is by far the most organized and caring trek company. For Chadra trek they are the best. They have treks throughout the country but for Ladakh nobody can beat them.
  27. Trekking with Altitude Adventure for more than 10 years
    Mansor P12th August, 2018

    Altitude Adventure India is by far the most experienced and organized and trek company for Ladakh region as far as i I know. If Ladakh and Kashmir is on your mind then they are the best, also they have routes throughout the himalayas. Jon for heir treks without any hesitation.
  28. Incredible Frozen Waterfall
    Saud12th March, 2018

    It was one crazy trek in freezing cold conditions, challenging and laborious to walk on frozen river but always thrilling and exciting. Experienced literally all types of forzen river: Hard, Slipper, soft, slush, ankle deep water and walking on hillocks. What more you can expect ?? Rewards were there with magnificent views of frozen waterfalls and best one at Nerak 50 ft gian frozen waterfall… What better to expect than that. An experience i will relish forever..Thank you Altitude Adventure India.. you are the best. The itenerary planned was very good keeping in mind the distance to be covered. Appreciate your team effort for taking excellent care. – Saud Khan , batch of January 2018
  29. Do the Chadar trek with Altitude Adventure India nly
    Milind S12th February, 2018

    Considering, I was longing for Chadar trek and my plans were cancelled in 2017. I wasn’t too sure of Chadar at first however, it turned out to be a trip of my life time thanks to Altitude Adventure India. These guys are very experienced and professional at organizing Chadar Trek in spite of the challenging and tough terrain. I really learn a lot from the other batch mates and the entire trek experiences was mind blowing. Thank Altitude Adventure for lot many things.” – Milind, batch of Feb 2018
  30. Best for Solo Trekkers
    Asmita29th January, 2018

    The Chadar trek was really awesome. I personally learnt a lot from this trek especially about surviving in such extreme cold conditions. Altitude Adventure India provided us with good services, even at the sub zero temperature the services they offered on the trek were awesome. The entire team at AAI is a group of concerned trek lovers! - Asmita, batch of Jan 2018
  31. Best Chadar Trek Organizer
    Sudhir Chandran25th January, 2018

    “I loved it. It was everything I expected and more !!!" The views were brilliant, the trek leader was lovely and always kept my spirits up, the food was AMAZING ( Continental food ? In the mountains? ), and our small group was just the right size for the chaadar trek. Trek was moderate, but I wouldn’t recommend it come without preparation. It’s a good introduction to high altitude trekking for people who have already maintained a moderately fit lifestyle.”
  32. Trek leader helped me learn a lot of things about high attitude trekking
    Ajith Singh8th January, 2018

    Altitude Adventure India offers the best of all I have seen in other organizers! I had heard that they are the oldest and most experienced trek organizers for Ladakh region. I must admit it that it was because of them I could go out of my comfort zone. The trek leader helped me to learn a lot of things about high attitude challenges but also helped me to inculcate discipline in my life.
  33. My fourth trek with Altitude Adventure India
    Devendra Singh12th March, 2016

    The chadar trek was amazing. The trail was very beautiful, and so were the landscapes. Though our group was small, we had great fun, as everyone was helping out each other. The morning walk to frozen waterfall at Nerak remains one of best days of this trek. Before this, I hadn’t seen anything so spectacular. In that moment, I thanked myself for having taken the decision to do this trek. This is my fourth trek with altitude Adventure India, but I must say that this trek is just unbeatable. I have never seen such landscapes.” – Devendra Singh, batch of January 2016
  34. Canring and Sensitive trek leader
    Seema12th February, 2016

    The Chadar trek was great….well planned…thanks a lot Altitude Adventure India. Our group leader was warm and caring, but he needed to be more matured in handling the group especially on our return journey. Special thanks to Tenzing… he is a real asset… very caring and sensitive… he really took care of my friend Khushboo… when she was not able to walk on the slippery surface.. i really enjoyed the trek with all members and the group leader. Thanks a lot. Seema from Chadar trek 2016
