Chadar Trek: Himalayan Winter Adventure

26 Jan – 03 Feb

Quick Overview

Welcome to the ultimate Himalayan winter expedition!

In this 9-day unique journey, you’ll brave extreme cold temperatures (around -25 to -30 deg.C) and walk on a frozen veil of ice over the Zanskar River, a path locals often refer to as Chadar! One that mirrors the vastness of the mountains, the azure sky above, the calmness, the silence and the overwhelming awe surrounding Ladakh’s remotest region.

With highly experienced local guides and a crew as adventurous as you, get ready to conquer yourself during this exhilarating trek deep into the frozen wilderness, a game of shadows that tests your mind and body, as you trudge under the gaze of towering gorges, past rivers and through the incredible Zanskar Canyon.

The Chadar Trek is truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience, a 9-day ticket to breaking away from life’s monotony and chaos, redefining your limits and finding a new you amidst nature’s greatest and wildest creations.

Trip Highlight

Meet the real heroes who make this trip every year

The locals of Zanskar do this trek not once, but many times during the winter season! They walk the Chadar multiple times to help us with porterage, their only source of income during the harsh winters.
