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.

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.

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 guess, 'awesome', 'amazing' and 'mesmerizing' are the words that can define our Chadar Trek 2012. From the very first encounter to the last (9th) day of our trek, the frozen Zanskar River kept us engrossed with its beauty and enthrallment. Only after the trek started, our entire group realised the various facts that make this trek, one of the most challenging as well as rewarding treks in the country. In addition to the charm and appeal of the frozen Zanskar, the way our entire trek was designed by Thrillophilia; it added an extra amount of fun and excitement to the 9 days of trekking. However, if you are also planning for this trek, make sure you book it beforehand as there are limited slots available and also a very few operators like Thrillophilia conducts this adventurous tour.

Though I had gone for some of the difficult treks in India, I never had so much fun and excitement as I had during my last year's (2013) Chadar Trek. The trekking routes, passes and the beauty of the entire Zanskar River were just the way, I heard so far. But what fascinated me more was the alluring appeal of the frozen Zanskar River. Though I was a bit reluctant about going for the trek alone, the way Thrillophilia / trip organizer arranges and managed the trek and the entire group, no one from our group ever felt new amongst the other members or the region. My guides were very helpful! Three cheers for the team!

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 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.

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.

Zanskar is the most amazing trek. Two rivers merge and a very nice restaurant at the bank will make you go speechless. You will forget all luxury in front of the beauty of nature. Thanks to Thrillophilia team for such wonderful trip.

Unfortunately I did not have a high quality camera with me during this great Chadar trek. Out of the total 9 days of trekking, I enjoyed every single day with other trekkers in the group and had a great amount of adventure and thrill. The temperature was way below the normal range. I did my research on packing properly and moreover, this organising platform will make you aware of all the dos and don'ts of Chadar river trek like no one else can do. Trek guides and instructors were cool and sincere enough to help our entire group whenever we needed them. Thanks to all for this amazing experience.

Though I had to wait for almost an entire year for this Chadar trek, my wait was totally worth! I think I was the last member to enrol in the group as the previous groups I tried with cancelled their plans at the last moment. Luckily, booking with this platform was so damn easy and I got the last seat. Once the trek started I really started to thank our trek guides for being so courteous and guiding us all through. The walk over the frozen Zanskar River or the ankle deep water, the climbing experience and the downfall of the temperature lever; everything is still fresh in my mind.

Wow! Chadar trek is one of the most amazing trekking experience of my entire life. I don’t think I will ever forget this! Walking on a frozen river is not at all easy, but the feeling that you get once you acquire the skill of balancing yourself is just out of the world. The amount of adrenaline rush I got from that cannot be compared to anything else! A big thanks to Thrillophilia for such efficient support service and also our trek guides who made sure that our trek was carried out smoothly.

Chadar trek is indeed the best call for a trekker and so it was for me as well. The tour guides were extremely friendly and the trek was so easy to book. From day 01 to the last day of the trek, we all had immense fun, adventure and excitement trekking over the frozen river bed. Chadar trekking experience is something that must not be missed if you want to prove yourself as a trekker. Even the Chadar trek cost is also reasonable provided you go for a trustworthy group and experienced guides.

As a trekker, all I can say is that Chadar trek has a charm that you cannot find anywhere else. Swear, from the moment you start trekking till the moment you complete this awesome trek, you will definitely enjoy the challenges on the way. Climb over the surrounding snowy rocks, walk over the frozen waters, find way even when there is no way; you can only experience in this trek. Amazing experience overall.

Man...I would personally ask the trekkers to get some real nice experience of trekking in challenging terrains and conditions before they join the Chadar trek in Ladakh. As the Zanskar River freezes down, the trekking surface (the river bed) offers various types of challenges that you might not have faced anywhere else or before. At some points, you have to climb the peaks or walk though hanging cliffs to make your way. Book with this organiser group and you will be at safe hands.

Chadar trek is not only a trek. For me it was more like exploring and rediscover myself. 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. At times, when the river bed is too fragile, you have to make ways through the nearby rocks and cliffs. Trust me, this will be best trekking experience of your life.

This Trek was my most thrilling experience ever. Such pure beauty that I encountered on the Chadar was mesmerizing. The never-say-die spirit of the Ladakhi people really motivated me. Traveling with Thrillophilia was a great decision. They helped us in every possible thing. Would strongly recommend you all to try it as well.

Woah! What an experience man! I don’t think I will ever forget this! Walking on that snow covered blanket, crossing boulders and at times even slipping on thick ice. My God! The amount of adrenaline rush I got from that cannot be compared to anything else! Thank you to the organizers, who made sure that our trek was carried out smoothly and all the safety regulations were well taken care of.

Initially, I was a lot skeptical whether or not to undertake chadar trek but after hearing about it so much and especially the stunning pictures – all of these things just gave me my required push! Thrillophilia gave an awesome summary of the itinerary of the trek and everything was upto the mark. Very satisfying experience.

I don’t know how and when I decided to take this trip, but now I’m glad that my impulsive decision brought me close to such an awesome experience. The entire place is so beautiful that it will be hard for you to take your eyes off it. Chadar trek is certainly for the brave hearted and people who are looking for some adventure in life.

A must experience for all! Wait for January-February and don't miss the chance to trek through the Zanskar river that freezes down and offers the Chadar trek. You go for one time and it will tempt you to go for the next time as well. In fact, me too planning for a next trek probably Jan-2016 with this same group.

The experience is purely unforgettable and also one of the best so far. Though did a plenty of Himalayan treks before, Chadar trek will always be my favourite. Don't know about other organisers, but with this group, booking was pretty easy and the guides or trekking staffs are really praiseworthy. Nice and memorable experience of trekking through the chadar frozen river trek.

You gonna experience the best of your reflexes on the Chadar Trek. Trust me, every step in this trek should be careful enough and you simply cannot step anywhere you want. Well, that's how a trekker prefers to pump in some dose of adrenalines! But yeah, make sure you gotta prior experience of trekking in the Himalayas before you join the Zanskar Chadar trek.
