Leh- Ladakh, words can not describe the beauty of this magical region in Himalaya. Steep mountains, snow claded landscape, and beautiful rivers but in winter when snowfall closes large portions of the mountain passes and makes this region disconnected from other part life become hard. Some villages become completely inaccessible in between November and March. The Only one way for getting to snow-bound villages in the winter is to trek on frozen Zanskar river. The Chadar trek is one such expedition, connecting villages in the Zanskar valley (somewhere down in the mountains) with Chilling (headed straight toward Leh) along the frozen Zanskar River. This route has been used for centuries for trade and transportation and is most reliable in February when the ice is most stable. The trek from Chilling to the Zanskar valley takes over a week. the journey starts from Leh in a vehicle that drops you at Chilling sumdo and from here your trek begins in a valley loaded with stunning perspectives of ice-tops and sudden hanging icicles that will attract your gaze for some time. You will spend the night at cavern camps besides bone fire that will keep you warm and relaxed. The trek comes the Tsarap River in the area of Nyerag, Lingshed and constitutes to Zanskar! Obviously, having an expert guide is basic on the Chadar trek. Trekking on the ice is threatening.But that's the beauty of this Trek. Chadar Trek is considered as one of the most amazing and novel treks – an exceptionally unique and awesome natural trek on sparkling ice on the bank of Tsarap River.

How to Reach Leh for Chadar Trek:

By Air :- Jet Airways, Go Air and Air India provide daily (once every day) flight service between New Delhi and Leh. In the summer season, the services may even be provided twice a day. However if you plan a trip to this area of the country, you must try to book your tickets well in advance. This might even cut down the prices which may be levied on booking at the last time. You would enjoy the flight as you would fly over many untouched areas and even some mountain ranges. The aerial view is just fascinating and gives a great start to your tour.

By road :- The road from Manali to Leh is only open in the summers. The road trip by your personal may take you 2 days, but depending upon the weather conditions, the travel may also extend to 3 or even 4 days. There are also regular buses from Manali to Leh.

Me and my sons 19 and 17 years, were desperate to do a cycling tour in India after our Nepal tour with Explore Himalaya.I was nervous doing this kind of trip in India. However, our guide Akshay had planned out the safest tour and he was very safety conscious. It was an enjoyable 8-day trip and though there were some nerve-wracking road rides, most of the trip was awesome with few to no traffic. Would definitely recommend Explore Himalaya to other travelers.

It was more beautiful than I had imagined it. Valley of flowers is simply a delight to the senses. I came to know about this trek through my friend circle. We got in touch with explorehimalaya.org and they arranged the whole trek for us in a jiffy. Uttrakhand is a home to most beautiful mountain peaks and I'm glad I have discovered the cream of it all. Kudos to the team and the support staff.
