Chadar Frozen River Trek 2019

"Chadar" refers to the sheet of ice that forms over the Zanskar river as it transforms itself from a rapid flowing river into a white blanket of ice during winters. Chadar connects villages in the Zanskar valley (deep in the mountains) with Chilling (on the road to Leh) along the frozen Zanskar River.

Day 1:

Arrival in Leh (3500 m)

  • As soon you land at the airport, you will be greeted by dry and cold air, but what will take all your attention is the lofty, snow-capped mountains all around; a sight that will remain with you forever.
  • After completing the arrival formalities and picking up your bags from the baggage counter, take a taxi and proceed towards the pre-arranged hotel.
  • Enjoy an overnight stay in the hotel.

Day 2:

Acclimatization Walk in Leh

  • Get up early in the morning and begin the process of acclimatization at high altitude.
  • Proceed to walk towards Shanti Stupa, a sacred Buddhist stupa, from where you will get an opportunity to witness a beautiful view of the sunrise and a panoramic sight of the town of Leh.
  • Stay hydrated as you spend your first day of the trek in Leh.

Day 3:

Getting a medical check-up at SNM Hospital

  • Due to the challenging nature of this particular trek, government has made it mandatory for participants to acquire medical certification before they undertake Chadar trek.
  • A clearance certificate upon a medical check-up will be issued by the Sonam Narbu Hospital.
  • One will get a certificate only when adequately fit and acclimatized for the trek.

Day 4:

Shingra Koma and Tsomo Paldar

  • Enjoy tea and breakfast in the morning and start your journey by driving to Shingra Koma. This ride is not for the faint-hearted as bumpy roads and hairpin bends are quite common on this route.
  • The sight of the surrounding high mountains will give you a sense of awe.
  • After a point, you will have to deboard from the vehicle and trek towards Tsomo Paldar campsite.
  • Your Chadar trek expedition starts here.

Day 5:

Trek to Dib Cave/Tibb

  • Today, you will set out to trek to Dib Cave/Tibb.
  • During the day, you will behold the breathtaking beauty of the region including ravines and gorges. You might not see sunshine properly as the steep cliffs in this area obstruct them.
  • Once you reach Dib, you will see a large cave. This is the place where you will halt for the night and rest. Butter tea would be offered and we recommend you to try it.
  • Enjoy overnight stay at the campsite.

Day 6:

Dib Cave/Tibb to Camp at Naerak

  • Today, you will trek the most scenic part of the region and get a chance to witness the largest frozen waterfall and prayer flags.
  • The bridge built next to the site of the waterfall is used in summers to reach Zanskar from Leh.
  • Thereafter, you can proceed towards the village of Naerak to mingle with the locals and understand their way of living.
  • Stay overnight at the village camp comfortably.

Day 7:

Naerak to Tibb

  • On this particular day, start your return trip and proceed towards Tibb.
  • The return trail would not be easy and the river quickly reacts to any change in the temperature. By now the frozen river might have taken an entirely new form.
  • On the way back, admire the beauty of the region, click pictures and meet locals, who can be seen wearing traditional woolen Gonchas (robes).
  • Upon reaching Dib Cave, relax and stay overnight at the campsite.

Day 8:

Tibb to Shingra Koma & Back To Leh

  • In the morning, get ready to leave Tibb and proceed towards Shingra Koma, crossing Gyalpo. The trail today will give you a chance to witness high mountains and pugmarks of wild animals like snow leopards, ibex and foxes.
  • If lucky, you just might spot a leopard; even if you do not, then at least be sure, you would be watched by them.
  • In the evening, drive back to Leh and stay overnight at the hotel.

Day 9:

Departure from Leh

  • Today, the mesmeric journey to one of the finest scenic destinations of India will ultimately come to an end.
  • The entire experience, we are sure, would give you an unmatchable feeling of achievement and satisfaction.
  • In the morning, check-out from the guesthouse and depart from the Leh airport.
