Chadar Trek 2014

After long time back I am updating my blog. Actually I went for Chadar Trek which was my dream trek and I completed it this year. Now all I can say this was one of the most adventures experiences of my life. Chadar trek is a very adventures trek in the Laddakh. Actually the meaning of Chadar is a sheet of snow. In winter temperature go down almost -30 degree celsius and Zanskar river freeze and covered with snow and become highway for Zanskaris in winter. They use this route for their trade and other purpose. Meaning of  Zanskar is Land of Copper…

Chadar Trek is also known as Khado sanglam in Zanskari language which Zanskari use as the last way to with the outside world. This trek is one of the top ten treks in the world. Trek gives different colors of water in a single river and different shade of mountains. I came across with different life style and culture and tradition here which I will share later but uploading some pictures of this trek…

  15. First a fall, I would like to tell you that you have done a wonderful task and your experience seems to be amazing.
    Keep it up.
    Now coming to Chadar Trek :
    One of the toughest and most adventurous trek, the total distance of this tour is approximately 105 Km and will be covered with average distance of 15 to 17 km a day. The temperature remains minus 15 to 20 during the day time and – 25 to –35 during the night. After keeping all the facts in one’s mind bring your warmest Jackets and sleeping bags and good shoe. Most of the trek is done on the ice (Chaddar) but at some places we must climb icy rocks or trails.
    Anyone looking forward to adventurous place in INDIA? After an exhaustive on line research I found this best package .Check it out.
