Chadar Frozen River Trek: A Guide For The Walk To Remember

Frozen River Trek India
02 Dec

Imagine walking through the snow-laden trails over the sheet of a frozen river in freezing cold. Embarking on a journey that tests your endurance along the way is Chadar River trek India. That is what Chadar Trek is. It is a very surreal destination and makes the most thrilling trek place for the travel bugs and especially for the mountain lovers. The Chadar Frozen River Trek is one of the most scenic and challenging treks in India. The trek is six days long and takes you across the frozen Zanskar River in Ladakh. It is located in the lap of Ladakh, where you will not find many human beings.

Best Time to go for Chadar Trek

Chadar trek is considered to be challenging as in winters Zanskar River is frozen, making the road slippery and dangerous for the trekkers. The thick blanket of ice covers the river giving meaning to its name Chadar, the blanket of ice. The temperature hovers to -15°C and -30°C temperature. So, it is very important to have endurance and mentally prepared for these conditions.

Amazing Campsites at Chadar Trek

Frozen River Zanskar:

The chadar trek is like the white gem ice sheets under your feet. The twilight trek route carries you through the villages in the Zanskar valley deep in the mountains connecting to the chilled Zanskar stream.

Encapsulated at differing intervals from the majestic mountain range, with peaks surrounding 7000 m, the virtue of Zankar is isolated for hundreds of years. The Zanskar River runs wild through the deep Himalayan canyons in summer but, as the winters arrive, temperature drops as low as -40C, freezing its upper layers.  Zanskar river flows through a steep canyon Zanskar Valley. The road to Zanskar Valley is used for trading purposes in winters as it freezes due to snowfall.

Naerak Camp :

Naerak is the most favorite campsite of the trek as it is the iconic landmark that gives you a scenic view of a frozen waterfall. Be ready to experience the cold here as the temperature dips up to -30 degrees at night. If you are left with time, don't miss Nereak village. The village is quite conventional, but you will get to know the ultimate combination of Indian and Tibetan culture with them. The chadar route here is pretty appealing with deep canyons and cliffs. As you move a little ahead of the huge waterfall, you reach the Nerak bridge.

Wrapping Up:

Snow Camping was perfectly organised by Manu. We were a group of 15 people from Mumbai and came for some small hike with Snow camping. We had an awesome experience in the woods , location can't be any better and food was also freshly prepared for us. Tea was served as we wanted which is really good for us in cold.Thanks team Himalayan Adventure trips

Even though not as popular as other trekking agencies, these guys were very professional and conducted one of the most difficult treks in an Excellent way. The trek leaders, support staff and the cooking staff were excellent. They really run the trek on their shoulders. I remember the cooking head was saying to me that he has done pin Parvati nearly 50 times and there hasn't been any incident whatsoever, I realized it why. The technical staffs really did amazing job to get everyone cross the difficult and risky boulders and tricky sections. Appreciate the whole team. The management team though can improve on communication and advertising more.

Yunam Peak is open for those who look for a High Altitude challenge. Its duration is short compared to the others of comparable height. One is on foot only for 2 or 3 days. One part of the walk is entirely loose stones/boulders, the other part is just snow. Himalayan Adventure trips provide comfortable accommodation before and after the trek at their campsite in Naggar. Their trek guide was competent and the other members were proficient in the work they had to handle.

It was my first trek and I choose Sar Pass trek as suggested by Himalayan Adventure trips representative. They also helped me with my packing and preparation for the trek which was really useful. I was able to complete trek successfully with a little difficulty since it was my first trek, but everything was very organized with good food.
