Chadar trek is one of the most glamorous trek in India. The Chadar frozen river trek is an extremely glamorous trek. Chadar trek is one for the adrenaline-junkies that like to go all in or all out. This trek will give you a chance to walk on the frozen Zanskar River. It is a huge favourite among Indians and travellers from abroad. Meant to be tried only by seasoned professionals, Chadar river trek is about endurance, focus and fitness.

The beauty of this region attracts a lot of visitors, but its harsh and deserted environment is quite demanding. On a Zanskar Valley trek, you would meet the locals and understand their way of living in one of the most uninhabitable regions in the world; some locals stay in the camps alongside the banks. Meeting with these locals who sustain a challenging lifestyle or a livelihood in these conditions is sure to charge you up.

The temperature, in general, is twenty degrees below the freezing point and sometimes goes even further below. So, one should try to generate sufficient body heat by walking over sustained periods of time. Lastly, although investing in durable footwear is advised for all treks, this one highly demands it. Anyone  who returns from the Chadar trek adds to the aura around it by talking about the conditions in a revering way.

The Chadar frozen river trek is an experience for the brave-hearted that seek thrill through responsible eco-tourism. The weather and terrain might shake your confidence a bit but if you can surpass that then the journey to this land will be the most enrich experience of your life.
