It had everything that you dreamed about. It had ice (lots and lots of ice), even when I was sleeping battling the cold at night I was could see those ice sheet right in front of my eyes. We were walking on ice, we were drinking those ice (of-course the boiled one), but the most exciting part was that we were never complaining even under these extreme condition. Thank to these amazing group of people I was travelling with. The support staff, the organiser and each and every people related to this trip were an amazing host. They made us feel at home, they fulfilled almost all our demands. I had done 2 treks before with other organizations, but these people were the best. The fun we had is quite vivid with this picture, but trust me nothing can be explained in words, you just have to feel it. Keep yourself fit and go for it . It will change the way you see nature , it will change your perception towards people and many more things. Stay happy and keep trekking

Chadar trek was always on my wishlist but knowing about the extreme challenges I always gave it a second thought of doing it or not. It was the time I saw the ad of Thrillophilia, read about the schedule and other people's reviews, I just made up my mind to do it. Many thanks to Thrillophilia to make it a dream come true. I simply saw a God made Heaven on Earth amongst the blue Zanskar, white ice and the amber Himalayas. With each day of the trek, we explored newer phases of Himalayas. We had a great team which made the difficulty level of the trek easier. The rooms were very cosy when we reached after landing in Leh. The organizers were very friendly, the helped us with buying proper shoes required for the trek, heaters for our room and also some sightseeing. The cooks made amazing food. Last day we were overwhelmed when he specially made a cake for us with an icing on the top for we completed the trek successfully. We had a group member who had a birthday during those days. When the cook learnt about it, he managed to make gulab jamuns for the entire team. The porters were also very helpful in carrying all our stuff. The gala time we had in the evening bonfire and the music and the tasty snacks and the dinner is never forgettable. They also made sure about all the medical needs of the group members. Overall, we just enjoyed a lot! The beauty of the Himalayas in the Chadar is just spellbound. Every brave heart must make this once in their life..!! Thanks, Thrillophilia..!!

Being fromSouth India, I always had the desire to explore the mountains and I did few treks like Valley of Flowers and Stok Kangri. This time one of my friends asked me for Chadar trek. I was hesitant at first but he forced that we should do this time. The package was really great and the price was very decent including the number of days. We did this trek on February this year and it was the best adventure we had so far. We had a very great organizer and they have done quite good arrangements for us. We both went and bought Gumboots and some thermals for the trek from the local markets here. We started our trek on our second day and took a drive from Tilad Do via Chilling. We had some great view during our drive. Trekking was through remote villages, valleys, snow-covered fields, large white meadows and frozen rivers were just awesome. From Tilad we continued our trek to Shingra Koma, on our third day, our trek leader Subham was very brief about our day and also told was to keep ourselves warm as the temperature seems to drop. It was a beautiful day; today we were able to walk properly on the ice. Our fourth and fifth day was the best. We could see frozen waterfalls, hot springs, large rock faces which was just fantastic. Camping on the Tibb cave was totally a different experience for all of us. It was a wonderful trekking experience for me. During this trek there are few things I would like to mentions. Few do’s and don’ts that we all need to remember. Do’s While you are heading out for your Chadar trek always make sure that you take warm clothes with you and wear thermals inside your woollen wear, the night can be very cold. Always wear Gumboots and waterproof shoes. These boots will help you to have a firm grip on the snow and walk without much difficulty. Although you will have medical emergencies it is advisable to carry your own medical kit and medicines. There will be very less drinking water during your trek so carry water bottles with you and also fill your bottles where ever there is a stop. Also, carry energy bars with you. Trekking in the thin sheet of ice may be difficult so always listen to your trek leaders and follow the guidelines. Don’ts: Always be careful that you don’t pollute the place by littering. This trek is known as the most beautiful trek and so it is advisable that you keep the grounds clean. Do not use shampoos or soaps and contaminate the waterfalls. The local tribe use this water for drinking. Do not point any fingers at the monasteries or the local people, they might find that offensive. Also, don’t click pictures of the monks.

Our Chadar Trek adventure was one of the best and most memorable treks for all of us. I along with my friend went for this incredible trekking adventure in January 2017. Very well arrangements have been made for us by the team. I have heard about the beauty of trekking in Zanskar River but when I was actually there it was a lot more amazing. You will fall in love with the views and the whole surroundings. We took our flight from Delhi to Leh from where our tour would start, we were joined by another group of trekkers at Leh. I love to keep a track of each day in my diary and today I will share this with you as well. Day 1: We reach Leh on our first day, such a beautiful place, the airport was very well maintained and that too high up in the mountains. It was a very pleasant day and the cool mountain air was keeping us more active. We visited the markets and the nearby places on our first day and also bought few items for the trek and some energy bars too. Day 2: On our second day, we started with a thrilling ride to Tilad Do via Chilling. Passing through the steep hairpins was a bit scary but we had a wonderful driver Gorakh with us. The day was a bit colder and we started climbing to Shanti Stupa, the sunrise was just breathtaking. It was our first-day trekking in the Zanskar. At first, I was scared a bit to walk on the ice but as we continued I was able to walk properly. We reached our campsite by late evening and the sleeping bags were quite a saviour through the night. Day 3: On our third day, we trekked from Tilad Do to Shingra Koma. After a short brief about the whole trek and how to walk on the ice by our trek leader, we started our trek. We had to cover around 10 km today. Be careful while you walk on the ice as it can be very slippery at times, I faced this problem while walking and had to take small steps when I walk. When we reached halfway our cook cum porter prepared some maggi and soupy noodles for our lunch. I just loved to have something warm at the top of the mountain. We passed Shingra koma, and reached our campsite at Gyalpo. The campsite was very beautiful and we could see the mountains on all sides. After our dinner, we enjoyed a sound sleep. Day 4: On our fourth day, we started our morning with a warm cup of tea and delicious breakfast and then went for a quick march. Today was a big day for us as we had to cover around 15 km, we started trekking through the deep ravines of Zanskar, and the day was a bit colder as there was no sunlight at all. We passed through many caves and saw few frozen waterfalls. We reached Tibb cave where we will be camping for the night. We had a wonderful dinner with some roti and a sabji. Day 5: We started our day with a morning breakfast and some tea. Today we had to trek from Tibb cave to Naerak camp. As we started trekking we came across many Junipers and prayer flags tied on a twig. It was such a beautiful sight. We also came across a huge waterfall on our way to the camp. We had to walk slow as few of the paths were bit slippery. We could also see the Narek village and the distance light flickering in the small huts. We set up our tents near the river, it was biting cold and so we made a small bonfire. Our trek leader Mohan was really helpful enough and he told us about the place and our next route. Day 6: Today our trek was from Naerak to Tibb Cave which was basically our return journey. I would advise you to wear thermals to keep off the biting cold, the day was very cold when we started. We saw the local people wearing their traditional woollen Gonchas and few monks taking making their way to the Lingshed Monastery to Leh. It was such a wonderful view to see people how these people have adjusted to the biting cold here. We reached Tibb cave by late evening and then set up our camps for the night. Day 7: Today our trek was from Tibb Cave to Shingra Koma. We came across many pug marks of a fox. We reached our campsite and there we were cooked a delicious warm dinner by our cook. He made us rice, sabji and dal. Day 8: We were almost coming to an end of our trek. Today we had to trek from Shingra Koma to Tilad Do and drive to Leh. We reached Tilad Do, from where we had to bid farewell to our team. Thanks to Mohan ji and Gorakh for making our trek such an awesome one. We checked into our guesthouse Dorje Guest House for the night and spend the night there. Day 9: Today was our last day at Leh, we enjoyed a delicious morning breakfast and was ready for our return journey. We took our flight back home. We had the best time doing this incredible trek, a must do trek for all the adventure seekers, you will just love everything about this trek. Just remember to wear thermals and wear gumboots during the trek. You can buy them at Leh on your first day itself. And click a lot of pictures to cherish these memories. Huge thanks to team Thrillophilia. Keep rocking guys.

The vendor took a very good care of the trekkers and made the journey really awesome. It was a great journey with lots of adventures and unique experiences! Pros:- Great food at all camps. It was tasty and healthy.- Accommodation was good at Leh and at the camps (tents and sleeping bags).- Trek guides were quite responsible. Moreover, they were flexible and helped us complete the trek one day early. They were also entertaining and we had a great time interacting with the guides.- The guides and organizers were very helpful during medical needs.Cons:- The toilet tents could have been better. (I think this has been incorporated in later batches). The orientation could have been done better. A group leader could have been assigned who could take up the responsibility of ensuring that group starts the trek on time and who could take a headcount at each checkpoint. The itinerary could be slightly modified to help those who wants to visit the Nerak village.Micro-spikes could be provided by organizers.

Well organized trek. Our trek leaders Tashi n Stenzin were too good. All the porters and kitchen staff were really amazing. Could improve on better guest house instead of Tsokar as there were mice in room, it was too cold n dark. Overall the experience was amazing as Chadar is a very beautiful place. Thanks Thrilophilia!!!

As I set my first foot on the Chadar, a long kept dream of mine started to materialize out of my imagination and took a perfect shape when I threw my walk-pole into the air upon completion of the trek. Thanks to Thrillophilia, thanks to Adventure Studio for the wonderful service in such a hostile terrain with a special mention of Lobsang, our Trek-guide. We were lucky to experience almost a complete walk on Chadar. It was amazing. I'm still in a trance.

Everything about this trek and Ladakh is unique the scenery, the landscape, the temperature, the people, frozen waterfalls, caves and campsites on sheet of ice. I that’s why this trek is considered to be most adventurous and unique in whole India. I have never seen frozen waterfall in my life but on day 5th in Naerek I saw this phenomenal frozen waterfall and for a second I was not able to believe on my eyes. I think all these factors make chadar once in a life time experience and it’s must do for any trekking enthusiast.

It was one of the best trek experience I had. Every night the group used to sit together and discuss the day's walk. We used to discuss what all we saw during the day if some were facing any issue. Every morning the trek leader was briefing about the day's schedule.

I did an extraordinary thing, I booked with Thrillophilia because they told me that the trek leader and the guide know about the rock climbing. Once we reached Naerak Camp I asked them that if we can do rock climbing on the waterfall. They agreed and they were carrying the equipment too. Climbing on the waterfall felt like out of the world.

I was tired on day 4 of the journey and I didn't want others to slow there pace because of me. During the snacks time, the guide asked me that whether I was fine or not. He was observing me during the walk as I was walking slow. He went around and got some wooden sticks, made a sledge for me. He then asked me to sit on it. I was amazed by seeing the generosity of that person. He pulled me for the next couple of hours till we reached out next base camp.

It was very cold during the Chadar trek and I fall sick due to it. Trek leader had first aid kit with him and he helped me in all possible to get well. But I was not feeling well so our trek leader arranged my return back to Leh. It was like dream shattered into hundreds of broken pieces.

All the 9 days during the trek and had something new for us. I had been to Ladakh on a bike but this was totally a new experienced. Totally value for money for the quality of service, tents, sleeping and food which we got during the trek. Trek was conducted by local trek leader and porters who are from Zanskar village. It was very cold and ice at some place was very thin. One of trek member fall into the river during the trek but our porters and guide very quick to jump in river and take him out. So always be careful while walking on thin ice sheet.
