Best Camping Tours in Delhi

Delhi has some of the best camping locations that you can access from the capital. Conveniently located close to the states of Himachal Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Uttaranchal, New Delhi is the doorway to India’s prime hill stations. Whether it’s Dehradun, Kasol, Kargil, Mandi, or simply the Himalayan caravans, New Delhi offers you some of the best trips you can find to spend that weekend with your family and friends or the week off work. For example, a camping trip you can easily go for is the Himalayan caravans, which is a trip for eight days where you begin with Srinagar and make your way up to Ladakh. The beauty of this trip can only be experienced by the traveller, and cannot be narrated. Experience spirituality and the solitude of nature on this amazing trip where you will start appreciating the beauty of nature. Visit the Magnetic Hill, Nubra Valley, monasteries of Alchi and Lamayuru, the Pangong Lake etc.

 

Some of these weekend tours are the best you can lay your hands on, for instance, the Nag Tibba trek that begins from Dehradun and takes you on a tour of the beautiful Garhwal snow peaks, Black peak, Srikanth, Swargarohini, and Bandarpoonch, is one of the best trekking trips you can be a part of. This is a trip of two days, so a weekend is good for you to go. The Tosh Valley trek and a three day camping trip in Manali are also another short trip you can indulge yourself in.

 

If you are looking for a longer trip, The Chadar trek which takes you from Leh to Kargil over a period of nine days is a must to go for. The region is stunningly beautiful, and in winter, heavy snowfall clouds the entire place. The frozen river attracts thousands of trekkers every year who come here to be a part of one of the most challenging treks you may have ever been on.

    Chadar Trek - Frozen River Zanskar Trek - 2018
    l
    Kargil

    Available Group Departure:Jan: 13,14,15,20,21,25,26,27Feb:  2,3,10About the Activity:Ladakh has always captivated visitors with its magical charm and beauty. Be it the picturesque mountain peaks, azure lakes or the challenging trekking trails, this scenic valley is known for all. While during the summers, the region adorns the most vibrant colour of the nature, during the winters it is embraced with heavy snowfalls that cuts off the entire region from the rest of the world.Nestled deep within the whirly passages of the snow-clad mountains, this frozen river also entices thousand of trekkers from different corners of the world. Popularly known as the 'Chadar Trek' due to the formation of the thick blanket of the snow, it is considered as one of the challenging as well as tricky treks in the world. When this happens, the only way to continue with the trek is to hike through the snowy rocks and boulders besides the river. Quick Facts:Temperature: 15 to 20 degrees (during the day) and -25 to -35 degrees (during the night)Trekking Distance:  75kmMaximum Altitude: 11,123ftDifficulty Level: Difficult Airport: Kushok Bakula Rimpochee Airport, LehTips for Chadar trek1) Prepare your mind first: This is a difficult trek that comes with a lot of extremities. From the weather to physical requirement. Train your mind to expect and accept the sub-zero level. Do bear in mind that there is life which exists there as well; for centuries Chadar is used as the only way to commute to Leh during winters. Your mental strength will signal your body to withstand the cold climb.2) Be Warm: Next is to keep oneself warm as the temperature falls severely on this trek. To keep going and not be deterred by the weather conditions, use 4 layers for the Torso that includes ,a jacket and a wind sheeter which is waterproof and has a fleece lining. For the bottom, a base layer, thermal underpants and waterproof pants with a fleece lining, should suffice. Make sure your fleece and jackets have zips down the  front so that you can unzip them as the day grows progressively warmer.3) Keep a woolen cap and gloves (a must).Essentially you need to sleep well during the night to keep you fresh for the next day of trek. Keep an insulating water bottle to keep your sleeping bag warm during the night. Use Silk liner inside your bags to keep it warm enough.4) Footwear: Hiking shoes + Gumboots At occasions, trekking on the Chadar involves wading through knee-deep cold water. Though hiking shoes are highly recommended, gumboots help keep your shoes and feet secure from the icy cold water. It is practically impossible to dry anything at Chadar, so gumboots are a compulsory and a crucial addition to the footwear.5) Expect sweet pain: The Chadar is a glossy, slippery sheet of ice and will never let you walk carelessly. But no matter how careful one is, everyone falls and slips more than once on the Chadar. If you fall, just get back up by rolling on your knees and keep walking with confidence. Gumboots might give you shoe bites, but you’ll get used to it as you walk.6) Observe and keep moving: The locals can give you a firsthand training of how to cross the lake on your foot. On a closer observation, you would notice that they walk fast and take Penguin like strides on the ice. As you watch them, you will learn their ways of manoeuvring around on the ice blanket and learn when it is wiser to wait than to carry on, or the reverse.7) Keep your electronics warm: Extreme cold climate can ruin electronics. Hence keep them warm by keeping them safe by tucking them in your pockets closer to your body it will keep them warm and long lasting.8) Protect your fingers and toes: In sub-zero temperatures, fingers and toes are the most exposed and can be frozen resulting into bad pain when camping. Carry waterproof woolen socks and gloves. An extra pair of socks would help as they gather moisture while wearing gumboots.9) Warming pads: Warming pads are very helpful for those who feel cold sooner than others. These are exothermic pads to be slipped in your gloves and socks. They release heat and keep you warm for up to 10 hours.Do's and Dont's on Chadar trekDo’s of Chadar Trek- Needless to say that one should inform one’s family before coming for this trek, so in case of any emergency, they can come for help.- The temperature extensively drops down in the region. Therefore, it is advisable to keep warm clothes and shoes at hand. The shoes should also be waterproof.- As there won’t be any pharmacies on our trek, please do carry required medications and a first aid kit, in case of any bruises or cuts.- The area of this trek has hardly any shop to stop for food or drinks, hence it is advisable to carry water and energy giving food like energy bars and other eateries to be had at regular intervals.

Frozen River Chadar Trek was good. I was initially wondering how good this trek is gonna be, but it was nevertheless nice. It’s not every other day we happen to witness the beauty of the nature to its fullest form. Chadar Trek is one such trek where we get to see the beauty and magic of the nature to its fullest. This is a frozen ice trek within India. India is truly incredible. Whoever says that we have no winter should see this place. It’s gigantic and spellbinding beauty. I felt like I am walking inside a fairy tale. This place was that great. I totally loved it.

Amazing location, the views are just great. Trekking to Nagtibba might get challenging but then all the effort is worth putting for. Since the view is damn good.

Even today when I think about my journey to the completion of Chadar trek, I literally get goosebumps. Walking steadily over the frozen Zanskar River was the best ever I did do far. At times, had to climb the nearby rocks and find the way forward. The drops in the temperature were also the challenging part. But at the end, with the help of the experienced guides and trek leaders, I completed this Chadar River trek and got a million of super enthralling memories with me. Great experience of Ladakh Chadar trek!

You just don't get such amazing treks everyday! Really man, the Chadar trek is the ultimate for a trekker. I and our entire groups was totally enthralled on the Chadar trekking experience. All the 9 days had something new for us. The walks on the snow blanket was no less than a dream come true. Honestly speaking, this Zanskar region is the paradise for the trekkers. Loved the trek; awesome experience of life.

I rarely write any review but my experience was so wonderful that I really want everyone to know that how beautiful was to trek on the frozen river. I literally wanted time to stop right there. Those beautiful mountains and white snow everywhere. Super chilling wind and that thrill, it can't be described in words. Juts go there and you will realize that your decision was absolutely correct. And a big thanks goes to Thrillophilia for making me the witness of that Magic by Nature.

It was all white, snow all around and we were walking on a Frozen River which is on its own an amazing experience. Different destinations one by one and each destination decorated with nature’s ornaments. The Karsh Monastery one of the oldest Monastery and we happened to reach there on the day of festival and was mesmerized by the colorful mask dance and other rituals. This trip is just like being in heaven. Thanks a lot Thrillophilia.

I would call this trek as the best adrenaline pumping treks in the world. Really, very few treks in the world can match the challenges and thrills of the Chadar Trek in the Zanskar region. Hill and mountains we can climb every day, but when it comes to a frozen river, we don't get the opportunity every day. Luckily I got this opportunity to complete this Chadar frozen river trek with few of my friends. The experience was good, bookings were made easily and we were confident about the challenges on the way. The guides were really awesome and had a lot of patience and courage to lead the way even though there were extreme challenges trekking over the frozen river bed. Will always cherish this Chadar trek experience.
