One of the best experiences I had with a lot of new people, porters, and guides. Like it is said, you get to experience the real adventure only when you do it yourself. Though Rizwan briefed us about how different Chadar Trek is from any other trek, its challenges, and things we need to take care we were taking it lightly. On the second day when we stayed in tents, we got to know the reality. Salamat arrangements in Leh and on the trek were very well done. Guide took care of us all the time. We were new to using sleeping bags but with the help of guides there we adjusted in the worse conditions comfortably. Food was a luxury on the trek. We didn't expect dessert there and we eat Rasgullas. The guys Rizwan and Kavish from Thrillophilia were very helpful. When we came we were having so many doubts regarding the place, trek, weather, and whatnot. They answered out doubts without getting frustrated or anything. On the last day when the group came back, we had bonfire, party which was amazing. Kudos to The Thrillophilia team ( Rizwan & Kavish) Salamat, Jigemt and his wife. Thanks a lot. Thrillophilia for such a great experience.

Amazing trip and experience. Thupstan ji was very friendly and took care of us from day one till last day. We had to return from mid trek due to broken chaddar and he helped us to plan our trip for remaining days also.Must recommend this with Thupstan ji and team.

Right place, right time! I'm Shashank from Bombay.My journey to check the chadar trek off my bucket list took me on a strange but happy twist of fate trip on Jan the 24th, 2020.I landed in Leh and by the time I could gather by bearings about being in -18C ,I ended up in the 'wrong' cab and to the 'wrong' hotel ,where thankfully I ended up with the right bunch of guys lead by Rizwan from your crew. I booked my trip through another trekking organization, but boy am I glad I ended up with the thrillophilia gang. From briefing us on the do's & don'ts , what to expect and how to acclamatize, how to prep our bodies for the night by sleeping in tents while our stay in Leh helped us alot. During the trip the drivers and porters , these superb, hard working people made sure we had no difficulties in facing those extreme and harsh living conditions which is a routine for them. The food was the highlight during the trip apart from the breathtaking sights and the fun company. I met the best bunch of guys and gals I could've wished for to go on this epic,once in a lifetime journey and not to forget a big thanks to all those who made it possible, Rizwan, Salamat, Jimmy(chief trek guide) and Jimmy's entire crew of hard-working and happy locals who help us with the whole journey. Special thanks to Rizwan n Salamat for arranging the cab for the airport drop in the dead cold of the night. You guys have an excellent crew, cherish them and thanks for making my trip so awesome.

The stay was on the outskirts of Leh at Stok village which was very scenic. The acclimatisation process defined by them was very good. Staying on the outskirts than Leh really helped us get used to the temperature. The next 2 days we stayed in the tent in sleeping bags instead of heated rooms which helped us even further during the trek. They even provided us a wide variety of dishes for dinner :) Mr Kavish gave us a very detailed and scientific overview of all the aspects of the trek. He set very right expectations for what we will be experiencing on the trek. This helped us to be mentally prepared. Mr Hanif was one of our trek guides and he really added to the energy during the trek.

Had an amazing experience in the February batch of Chadar Trek. Trek was well coordinated and Mr. Thupstan ensured that we were taken care of on all days in Leh. His team of Superhumans (trek guide and portors) made the experience even more fun filled and memorable.

Chadar is really one of a kind experience! I am glad I came for this trek. I was not much prepared mentally, didn't know the challenges but on the first day when I met Salamat from the local operator, Rizwan, and Kavish from Thrillophilia I was relieved as they gave a very good prep talk. The facilities were good, the food on the trek was like a 5star hotel. Salute to the hard-working guides and porters who were always there for us at any time we needed. Thanks, Thrillophilia for this amazing experience.

Hi Chadder trek was my first trek with thrillophilia. It was very professionally organised. All information about trek, requirements, arrangements, condition of the chadder was given well before the trek. Organisers were easily contactable. All doubts were cleared. The local operater was nice. We met Mr Dorji in leh. His team was excellent. Arrangements in leh were very homely, food was great. Mr Dorji himself shared his experience which helped a lot during the trek. I would definitely recommend his team as the local operater.

This trip was something I'll always cherish. It was cold and windy, but it was amazing. I did some research before and decided to go with Thrillophilia and it was a good decision. I went to Leh a day before for I wanted to explore a few things. I stayed at a hostel very near to the market, met some of the returning trekkers, bought a few essentials and next day went to Stok village for the acclimatization. The entire acclimatization process was really critical as it helps your body get accustomed to the cold. And anyway I was more comfortable in the tent at night than at the hotel room. We stayed at Hotel Skittsal and did some local touring, one day being visit to a local kitchen, which was amazing. After the medicals we geared up for the trek. Even after doing so much research, I was thoroughly amazed by the beauty of Chadar. The formation that we saw when we were going forward was completely different from what we saw when we were coming back. The contour was constantly changing. We learnt a lot from our guide and the porters - as to why the Chadar breaks and reforms, how to identify thin ice, why thick is isn't always safe, how to skid on ice etc. I had a number of falls on the ice. But by the end, I became unbelievably comfortable skiing with my normal shoes. And the food that these guys prepared for us over there was unbelievable. Like one night we got gulabjamuns which surprised us so much! Our guide Stanzin was always diligent to ensure our safety and timings perfectly. We had a small team of 8 members - all from different backgrounds. Luckily we had a photo video blogger too traveling with us and so we made some cool photos. The last day of the trek was really memorable when all we could think of was a hot shower! Our stay, tents, porter team etc were all managed by the opeartor. The folks over there Tundup, Thupstan all were extremely helpful and jolly and would help you make the most of the time you spend there. Now some helpful pointers: 1. I would advise to carry your regular water resistant trek shoes and a good down jacket. Apart from that you can get everything at Leh Market at a very good price point. Feedback from some first timers who came with us: We should not have got all these pricy stuff from xyz store. All we used are only the local stuff only. Even though I agree with them, I feel you should get the shoes and down jacket from regular city stores. 2. You can avail bus commute for short distance travels. For example, you can take a bus to old leh bus stand from outside Leh Airport at only 10/-. Also lot of buses are there for different places. Just ask the locals or the driver. They are very helpful. 3. There are many fancy momo, thukpa places all around. Ask any local, where do you guys go for thukpa? and they might help you find mind blowing small joints serving delicious mutton momo and thukpa. Also advisable, to go to tea shops and see what others are having. For example, the guys order half fried egg with roti and dal with mirchi powder. Tastes awesome. 4. Lastly, please don't litter plastics over Chadar. The time we went over there, a new road is being constructed right beside. So next year onwards I guess there would be more people going over there. Request to all to carry your own plastics back to the city and dispose, and encourage others to do the same. So that few years down if you go back there you find it as beautiful as you left it. Julley!

Julley !!!!!!!!!!! we have completed chadar2020. Though we three were beginners in our group , we were able to complete chadar trek succcessfully .we just booked two months before with no prior experience . For this two months we had researched, seen many photos on Google and was very excited to do this trek. we just wanted to Complete the trek so made our mindset accordingly. You need to be fit, Stay calm and be mentally strongly. Once we reached Leh, the shivering nights were horrible. I wanted to go back but every morning I convinced myself to stay and complete this task. That was my best decision, and experience the CHADAR TREK. Hats off to our guides (jimmy and lundup) and porters who took care of us during the trek. Hot lunch was served everyday during the trek . We had a tremendous group with amazing bunch of people. Mesmerizing snowfall mornings, warm sleeping bags for cozy night, clear starry nights and fantastic views. All thanks to thrillophilia for giving us such an wonderful experience. Chadar nai kiya toh kya kiya !!!!

Eight days of trekking in a not so friendly environment of the Ladakh mountains was an unforgettable experience. The trek itself is not very arduous, but the conditions are definitely challenging. The trek challenged my limits and I never knew that I could be push myself to such limits. This is one experience which I can brag about always! It is not every day, you get a chance to walk over a frozen river! Thanks to thrillophilia for all the beautiful arrangements that I remember all my upcoming days.

Chadar Trek 2020 has been an incredible experience. A very unique hike, mainly because of the extreme weather. Excellent arrangements made by Thrillophilia to suit our needs. Utmost care has been taken to make sure that cold doesn’t affect us during the hike by providing good quality tents and hygienic nutritious food on time by Jimmy’s team... Rizwan and Salamat have been very responsive and friendly throughout.

Chadar Trek: Once in a lifetime experience for sure….!! Each day spent in Leh was so special. Experiencing the beauty of the city, the snowfall, the chilling sub-zero temperatures and the trail to the final summit, everything was uniquely mesmerizing. Loved the people around: the porters, organizers (Thupstan), my group and the trek lead. Haven’t seen people more helpful than them before. Thanks to Thrillophilia!! LRA#StanzinTsetanGuide

It's really a lifetime experience!! I would love to start by saying that Chadar is a gateway to heaven. An experience you cannot forget ever. Spending days in the negative temp is something not everyone gets to experience. I am proud that I took this challenge for myself and completed it till the point it was open. I am grateful to Rizwan from Thrillophilia & Salamat (our operator) who briefed us on the first day and covered every minute things we need to take care of. Our porters and guide were the humblest souls who were always there for us during the trek. They were working so hard in the extreme conditions to make everything comfortable for us. We celebrated birthday of one of our trekmate too where our cooks on trek made a cake for him which was way more than what we expected. On the last day we did a bonfire party at the hotel with Rizwan and Kavish and shared some of the best moments of the trek. Thanks a lot Thrillophilia for giving us this experience.
