Traveller Tales from Delhi

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!

If you are looking for a short and wonderful trek, Nagtibba trek is the one for you. It was easy for me to book this trek with Thrillophhilia and all the 3 days of the trek was really wonderful. Including the other group members, the trek guides and instructors were also helpful in arranging the overnight stays and other necessary stuffs for the trek. A big thanks to all the awesome members for making this trek a memorable one for me.

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.

Chadar trek is one trek that I think all trekkers should embark on as the entire experience is simply breathtaking and equally beautiful. I successful completed this trek last year and I’m still not over the trek.

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.
