The “Chadar” trek, made by the freezing of the river Zanskar, is a challenging but amazingly exhilarating excursion. The eminent images of Buddhist monks walking barefooted on the icy stream along woth the spellbinding panorama remains engraved in the minds of people persistently. Explorers who have undertaken the trek have been captivated by the natural exquisiteness and the cultures prevailing there. Without a doubt, the Chadar trek is a once in a lifespan experience, and if you are a nature admirer, and have the endurances to commence on such trail, it is strongly recommended you to experience this particular trek.

What Marks the Trek Matchless?

The Chadar Trek, in first look, looks a challenging trek with endless difficulties. However, it creates a peerless opportunity for profound adrenaline junkies. The temperature remains minus 1 to 15 degrees at night while 20 to 25 degrees at day. The frozen Zanskar creates a track for the trekkers and sometimes it may become risky to cross them on foot.

The trek engrosses several unique points that draw the attention of adventure from all around the blue planet. The warm and hospitable people of Zanskar offer an insight of local culture and traditions. There are various imposing monasteries that come en route. These monasteries are Hemis, Shanti Stupa and Thiksey Monastery. In addition to this, one may also witness snow leopard along with the congenial vistas including Zanskar Ranges and Nyarak Waterfalls.

Trekkers have to pace the complete way – there is no transport available, of any caring, even in case of crises. They have to effort out a trail and trail it. In addition to this, they need to hike over snow trampled mounds, and argue steep slopes which are freezing. It is like walking on glass. There is very slight grip obtainable on the ground. Thus, you have to stroll on ice and snow all the way. Possibly what is most tiresome is that you have to be on the continually guard for treacherous spots along the icy stream. There is no assurance it will upkeep your weight. You must have to examine the ground before setting your foot upon it.
