I had a nice and an awesome time while trekking and walking in the frozen ice path of Chadar mountains. The walk on ice trek in Chadar was the best trek that I had ever taken.

The chadar trek experience was out of this world. It was not an easy trek but never the less I am satisfied. You not only get to trek through a frozen Zanskar River but also get to witness the beauty of nature at its best. For a trekker, nothing can beat this experience of stepping into the frozen river bed.

The trek gives you a great taste of adventure. 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 amazing trek covers a lot of major peaks than any other trek in India. This is one of the best things to do in Ladakh for a long vacation. I recommend this trek to all trek lovers.

This place is nicely wrapped deep within the snow-filled mountains and ice. The reason for this name, Chadar Trek, is due to the formation of a dense, thick blanket of the snow. When I was on this trek, most of my co trekkers were from various parts of the world. Most of them came for the concept of the ice over here. This area feels like a blanket of ice on the town. Thus, it tempts thousands of travellers to visit this place. That being said, this is considered as one of the challenging as well as tricky treks in the world.

As a trekker I loved it totally. You will definitely love this trek. Take this trek to know how amazing it is. The beauty of this trek is the frozen river. This river is mind bogglingly brilliant. There are trekkers from across the world here. I am so amazed by the beauty of this wow-filled trek.

This place has its own magical charm and beauty; that’s a big positive of this spot. No matter how many times I visit, this place just captivates me like never before. The one adorable thing about this trek was the snow clad mountains. However, this was just a fine and a nice trek. The gigantic mountain peaks, or the blue lakes; the tiring trekking trails and the ever beautiful valley adds an adda to this place.

I have taken this trek a few times now. What an amazing trek to take! This trek is also popularly known as the 'Chadar Trek.' This trek is grand and sparkling for all of the obvious and some not so obvious reasons. That being said, I wish that the food was better. WOW trek this was. I took it in summer and it was not that frozen ice trek. It was more of vibrant flora. This trek is such a brilliant trek for anyone to take. My friends who took this trek in summer with me had taken this a couple of times in the winter too! He says, “If you want to experience the ice walk, take only in winter as in the winters, the region will be covered with a giant ice blanket.” When I took this trek the place was vibrant but obviously there was no ice. It was all filled with colours of the natural flowers and vegetation. It was charmingly beautiful. My friend took this trek during August or October last year. It looks like during the winter, the trek will be even more awesome. I guess this winter will indeed be the right time to do trekking. This place was totally filled with ice and snow. Do not do the mistake I did. Enjoy only winter trek over here.

While the trek is fun and challenging, a thick blanket of snow gets formed on the mountains causing us to freeze, thus the name Chadar Trek. The temperature range of this trek varies from 10 to 15 degrees during the day, and it goes very low like -30 to -35 degrees during the night. It was tedious. Or other option was crossing rivers, i.e. walk on frozen river. That was risky too. Also, this trek is quite tiring. One might have to cross boulders besides the river too.

While the word snow trek may seem fun, most of the times, the climatic conditions are bizarre. This makes life tougher. I would recommend it to all avid trekkers out here. It is pretty tough and tedious trek overall. However, with proper equipments for stay being provided, we could trek very comfortably. This is one of the toughest treks I have ever been. The trek is quite tedious. When this blanket of ice formation happens, our one and only way to continue with our trek was to hike through the snowy rocks. It is always better to be well equipped for the bizarre climatic conditions during the trek, despite the fact that the organizers will provide.

I struggled a big time with this trek. It is not an easy job. I saw people who are doing it for years now also feeling tired and worn out. After some time, my legs gave in and they were paining like hell. I could not do the trek any further. My advice is that if you are not a professional trekker or anything, then do not attempt this trek. It can be tempting by the description, but it is very risky.

Ladakh is always a mesmerising place. The trek is a fine and a nice trek. I cannot say that this is the best trek ever. I wish the trek was organized in a better manner. Still, nevertheless, I liked this trek. I do not know what I am attracted to with this place. The organization clearly was not good, yet I recommend this trek.

I am a hardcore trekker. I have taken superior treks with various trekking communities. This trek is just a basic trek. Also, this is not that tough. Probably that is the best part about this. Anyone can take it without inhibitions of the fact that this could be tough, scary, risky, or anything. That being said, the climatic conditions are a bit crude too. So, it is highly risky for people to be careless regarding the trek. Enjoy the trek, be safe! Thanks to the climate conditions that are bizarre. I still love this trek. This is a trek that you should not miss.
