Chadar Trek - Feb 2019 Julley!!!!! It's been 15 days my trek is over but chadar effect is still Onn!!!! Without fail I see the same pics again and again, take the pride to share my Chadar experience with my friends. Thanks to Satya, Shanshank, Guide, Porter's, my Group and Thrillophilia for this amazing and lifetime experience. Chadar denotes to the Frozen Zanskar River which transforms into thick layer of ice and it's a beautiful trek admist the Zanskar Valley. It was my first trek of life and really grateful to my sister as it was her plan and it's only because of her I had this lifetime unforgettable experience. Day - 1: Acclimatization The only Challenge in Chadar trek is adverse temperature which drops down to -30 and low oxygen due to high altitude. Trekker from all over the INDIA come for Chadar trek and due to drastic change in weather and temperature there is high probability of AMS hence government from this year has made a mandate 3 days acclimatization rule. So before carrying out the trek it a mandatory 3 days stay in Leh city which is followed by Medical. Once you are hit by AMS the only option left is fly back from Leh . While taking flight from Delhi to Leh don't forget to take window seat kyuki everyone knows Badal important hai but yahan Badal keh sath snow capped Himalaya ka view bhi milta hai and it's very beautiful. After landing in Leh airport we were received by Mr Tanzin who took us to our hotel. It was my first visit to the cold desert and I was overwhelmed by the hospitality of Ladaki people. We met Satya, our trek leader and over all in charge from Thrillophilia who welcomed us and had a short introduction over break fast. On Day1 we were strictly adviced to stay in hotel and not to exhaust ourself and to have at least 5litres of water - only saviour. Meanwhile all others members of our group came and in no time from stranger we became friends. In the evening there was an official introduction round of our group and we had a great time over tea and we were given briefing about the trek by our Guide Sir about Do's and Don't during the trek. Day - 2 : Leh Sight Seeing / AMS / Tension We were fortunate enough, big thanks to Thrillophilia for this add on and taking us for Leh city tour. We were taken to Thiksey monastery, Shey Palace, the meeting point of Indus and Sindhu river, Magnetic hill and local market. The scenic beauty was mesmerising and can't be captured and defined in words. It's way beyond beautiful. WARNING -Please don't forget to carry your water bottles and drink water at regular intervals. AMS - After the tiring day my brother in law was having a head ache and the moment we reached our hotel we reported this to Satya.The moment he heard he rushed my brother in law to hospital and asked us to stay back. His oxygen level was low and was hospitalized. He was hit by AMS and he was medically unfit to take this trek. All of a sudden all the excitement vanished and pressure crept in. It was certainly a tough call for all three of us. It was my sister's dream to take this trek and her husband was hospitalized due to low oxygen level and the only option left for him was fly back to Delhi. My sister almost made up her mind that she is going to fly back too . Shanshank Role- Experience Counts. While Satya was at hospital with my brother in law, Shanshank stepped in gave moral boost to my sister and convinced her not to quit and carry on. He told us that my Brother In law was absolutely fine it's just due to altitude and it's very common and he will be completely fine once he lands in Delhi. Satya after coming from hospital gave me a hug and asked me to be prepared for medical. Unfortunately my brother in law had to fly back to Delhi. Day-3: Medical From Jan 2019 it is mandatory for trekker to undergo medical test even if anyone has medical certificate from any doctor. The government has also introduced a mandate insurance policy for trekker keeping in mind the safety issue of trekker. Every person is issued an insurance card which is valid for 10days and any medical emergency during the trek is covered under it . Even doctors are available at camp sight and any casualty during the trek can be addressed. They have been given satellite phones and at utmost emergency, the evacuation process is carried out by helicopter. A great initiative by the government keeping in mind the safety of the trekkers. After medical clearance the excitement level was at different level. Finally we were given green signal and my wishlist was going to be fullfilled. Everyone from our group cleared the medical and for the next 5 days we were going to be in Chadar. On returning to hotel we were congratulated by Satya and Shanshank on clearing the medicals.On day 3 we have to sleep in tents just to have a feeling of Chadar. We were given briefing about how to use sleeping bags and be organized and take care of ourselves during the trek. It was altogether a different experience for me as it was my first trek of my life and I had never slept in tents before. The sleeping bag used was of same quality as used my military and it was very comfortable Day(4-9) : The Day - How's the Josh? Chadar here we come. After 3 hours of ride from our hotel we finally arrived at Chilling (from where our trek started) at around 12noon. The first step- It was like a dream come true. I was definitely on cloud9 . It's a 2 hour trek on the first day from Chilling to Tilad just to familiarize ourself with Chadar. Message - Please follow your guide instructions very carefully as smartness can be fatal at times specially in Chadar which changes every hour. Weather plays a vital role. Keep your sunglasses , sunscreen handy and cold cream handy, make sure your ears are covered. Relish your trek as it is one time. Enjoy the beautiful Zanskar Valley. Respect the environment and don't throw your waste in the Zanskar. Enjoy the freefall at Chadar as everyone falls and no one laughs at you. Food- I just couldn't believe that I will have such an amazing experience with food in Zanskar. I really am speechless . I never had such tasty food experience in my life. I had the most tasty veg Momo's of my life. And the love with which the cook served won everyone's heart. The support Staffs are the main hero of Chadar trek without whom it won't be possible. Enjoy your night and have good sleep. Tilad - Tibb Caves. The next day you start your trek after your breakfast and it's going to be a tiring day with 8hours trek. You have a lunch break in between where you are served kashmiri kawa and Maggie or Thupa. And around 4 in the evening we reached our camp site. Please change your socks immediately once you reach your camp site. After having our evening tea we went to medical camp site where our oxygen level and pulse rate was checked as routine check-up. You can explore camp site or choose to stay at dinning tent and chill with your group . Tibb Caves to Nerak. By next day your Josh has come down in the freezing cold valley but once you reach Nerak all your pain just vanish and its Worth it. The sight of huge waterfall and the feeling of completing the trek successfully brought in you a new Winner and you take the pride of earning it. Bravo!!! You have made it... It's a beautiful trek and sincere thanks to Satya, Shanshank, Dorje Sir, Tharchin Sir, and Thrillophilia for giving me this lifetime experience and the joy of completing the Chadar trek. Come and enjoy the C - Chilling, H- High, A-Altitude, D- Daring, A- Adventurous, R- Zanskar River T R E K.

Julley, (hello in Ladakhi). I have been there in Feb,2019 and done that. For me it was a sudden plan, just booked one month prior with no experience and was suppose to travel alone. For this one month I have researched, I have seen many photos on Google and was very excited to do this trek. I just wanted to Complete the trek so made my mindset accordingly. You need to be fit, not macho. Stay calm and be mentally strongly. Once I reach 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 JANNAT of our India. Hats off to Ladakhi people who looked after us during 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. Actually I can repeat - Chadar nai kiya toh kya kiya. Go for it for such a wonderful trip. Shashank and Satya from operation teams - guys you rock!!! PS - Don't spend on Decathlon, in Leh they have Army shops for reliable and cheaper gears.

It was a wonderful experience for me. Our briefing Guide was Satya Rajput. This program is specially designed to give you complete comfort during the trek. 1)Acclimatization for 3 days 2)Providing demo of all the camp activities before hand 3)keeping you aware of issues/problems that might happen 4)keeping check of your day to day activities during Acclimatization and suggesting you resolutions for the same 5)Program structure designed to build a good relationship between all trekkers to make them a good team. Satya helped us in building good team bonding, and kept the briefing sessions quite interactive. He was always present to listen our concerns and resolve them. Several trekkers come without preparation thinking they could survive, many of them also hide their problems like headache etc so that they were not pulled out of the program. But real trouble with Guides are they have to identify such people and instead of pulling them out they help them to resolve issues by taking them to doctor, arranging different trekking gears and accessories missing with them. Satya did all of this during our trek. His observation, identification and resolution capabilities helped many trekkers and they all were able to complete the trek properly. Thanks to him there were no complications during trek. Dorje sir and his team was also great. 14 porters in that - 35° temp, kept working hard, always on time, served us so well. Always fresh, ready to help, any time of the day ready to listen to our concerns. Not a single day went where i heard'no'. At night too, if u call them for help, they are ready for it. Sonam and Dorje guide, we survived the chadar trek because of their wisdom. Chadar was thin and broken, they chose the best manner in which we can pass through the way. I am thankful to everybody in this trip. They made our journey wonderful.

I went for the Chadar trek on Feb 19 with Thrillophilia. The trek on the frozen Zanskar river was an adventurous one. The entire activity was well organised by the company especially there operators in Leh Satya and Jigmet. The guides and the support staff were very supportive and did their best to make the trek a successful and enabled in finishing the trek without any injuries.

I'm Nitheesh and I have been planning to go for Chadar trek for 2-3 years. Everything went well in 2019 and I along with my two friends booked the trek commencing Feb 2019 through Thrillophilia. The booking procedure was simple and the price was reasonable. Almost all our queries were satisfactorily answered by the supporting staff of Thrillophilia over the phone. Once we reached Leh, we were welcomed by the Thrillophilia staff and accompanied us to the hotel. Hotel services were good and we were throughly breifed about the trek and related do's and dont's. The trek started after three days of acclimatisation and sightseeing in Leh. Next 5 days were filled with ' out of the world' experience and sceneries. Tough walk and extreme temperatures were diluted by the enthusiastic staff and professionalism of the guides. The trek is physically and mentally challenging and pushed us to stretch out limits. However, the final view of the Nerak waterfall was worth all the wait and toil. I highly recommend this trek to all those who are adventurous and who wish to test their limits and to find out what the unpredictable Zanskar holds for you.

What an amazing experience it was !! The Frozen River (Chadar Trek). Chadar showed our batch everything, slippery terrain, heavy snow fall, breaking of chadar and extreme cold temperature. We were lucky to reach the last point Nerak, see the amazing frozen waterfall and come back alive. Chadar is considered as one of the most difficult treks in India, due to high altitude, extreme weather conditions and obvious risk of chadar breaking, but we were well prepared for all - special thanks to Thrillophilia team. Shashank and Satya managed it efficiently. These two guys guided us about everything, starting from what to wear, how to trek, essentials, sleeping bags etc. Their correct guidance made it easy for us. I was a little scared while I was travelling to Leh as I heard a lot many scary stories about chadar, where people failed to survive and got hit by AMS. Thrillophilia’s day wise itinerary helped us to survive and enjoy the trek. Day 1 : proper acclimatization which is very important Day 2 : sightseeing (so that body adjusts to the high altitude) Day 3 : Medical Test Day 4 : the trek starts. 5 days of trek will show the most beautiful scenery, the group of unknowns will turn into lifelong friendship. Dorgey sir and his troop were amazing too, they helped us in every possible way, cook bhaiya prepared the best finger licking tasty food, each meal made me feel like heaven, getting something hot to eat @ -30 degree Celsius makes it even tastier. I reached nirvana the moment I saw the frozen waterfall at Nerak, I am really happy that the group of enthusiast made it till there. We danced like anything. Thank you Thrillophilia for making it possible and for the wonderful experience that is a little difficult to describe in words, chadar is a feeling. The only mantra that will keep you alive on chadar is “Cold is just the state of mind” :p

It was the trip which i will remember lifetime. For Chadar trek where climate itself is unpredictable with the help of Thrillophilia it became possible to complete the trek in a very good manner. All the arrangements from food to staying were just perfect. The staff members were very polite and helping. Anyone can trust them and go for solo trip as they provide such a wonderful faciility. They have very good arrangement for making everyone accumlized and comfortable enough to complete Chadar Trek. And every penny of the amount is worth by the arrnagement and facility you will get there. Even if you are going by less preparation they will help you with their knowledge that how can you be prepared and purchase stuffs in Leh city. The local staff on trip is awesome,between such harsh climate and hills also you will get great food. I would like to go on other trips with Thrillophilia. I would recommend others also to go on this trek organized by them.

Being a fauji kid i always dreamt to do something adventurous and so i chose the most dangerous most exciting chadar trek as my first trek. After reaching the hotel in LEH i was welcomed by Satya sir and guess what we both shared common backgrounds i.e. fauj. After having breakfast i went to the room and slept for an hour or two. In the evening we were briefed by Satya sir and Shashank sir about the trek which actually helped me during the trek. We were a group of 14 among which 8 came solo just like me. At night we introduced each other and slept. Next morning we went for sightseeing and explored beautiful Shey palace and monasteries and by that time we all knew each other names. On day 3 we all went for medical checkups and every member from our group was fit for the trek. In the meantime we went to LEH market for some shopping. We were again briefed by Satya sir , Shashank sir and Sonam Sir and guess what we slept in the tents with our sleeping bags. Next day we started our journey from LEH to Chilling . After reaching chilling we were all set to step our foots on chadar for the first time and that feel was amazing. We walked for 3 hours and reached our first campsite. After having a lovely dinner by our porters we sang songs and went to sleep. Next morning i experienced first snowfall of my life and everything all around us appeared to be white and ahhh what an amazing feel i had that time. By God's grace we all successfully made it to Nerak on day 6 and saw that frozen waterfall for the first time. The josh and the deshbhakti inside me came out, i removed my jackets and stuff, wrapped myself in INDIAN FLAG and waved it at NERAK. I cannot describe that feeling until you experience chadar trek, we spent two hours at Nerak. Alright we made it to Nerak so easily and we all were like wow that was easy but nah something was about to come. After having lunch at Tibb caves we started our journey , after an hour there was a patch when our trek leader Dorge sir saw that chadar is weak ahead and went solo upto 50-80 meters & came back and said we cannot go from here, so we climbed up the hill carefully as it was all covered with snow. And again after this we saw the same thing but this time we couldn't go through the hills as those were standing hills. And at this point we all thought one thing that we all made it to nerak so easily, this has to be happened. Dorge sir again went solo up to 50 meters to check the chadar and suddenly his legs went inside the chadar upto knee. Being an experienced trekker he immediately came out and changed his socks. We didnt have any option so we started walking on the chadar. I being second last in my group saw my group mates how carefully they were walking on chadar, I heard the satisfying sound of crushing the chadar when my right foot went inside the chadar and my gumboots was filled by water. Ah i didn't went mad but stayed calm, my friend Dev behind me shouted Dorge sir come here, and he within 30 seconds came back to me removed my gumboots and helped me to change the socks. We successfully made it to our tents that day and the rest of the journey. All I want to say is we were a group of motivators, we became a family and from day 1 to day 9 we all were positive and supported each other. Much thanks to all the porters who made such yummy foods for us. Thank you to dorge sir & Sonam Sir who always said we will go to Nerak. Thank you to Satya sir and Shashank sir who's briefings really helped me during the trek. I wish again to be with this group because we became a family. Thankyou Thrillophilia for such a wonderful journey on chadar. I will be uploading my chadar trek journey on youtube soon i.e. PUNEET VLOGS. Peace

I had done Chadar Trek from 02/02/19 to 10/02/2018 through Thrillophilia. It was an awesome trek, amazing beauty of nature walking on ice is very great experience. I really loved this trek. The difficult part of this trek is very cold weather but Thrillophilia managed everything very well they had planned proper step by step acclimatization that help our body to manage in -30 which is the difficult part of this trek. Especially the guys managing operations in Leh Satya and Shashank is doing a very great job. They are caring so much of each and everything like a Family member. The food is awesome during the trek you can’t imagine this much tastier food in that temperature. In sleeping bags you can’t feel even the temprature of -30 By the help of Satya the trip was awesome and our all group members are very satisfied with the service of Satya and Thrillophilia. I would suggest you all take an experience of chadar trek with amazing service of Satya and Thrillophilia.

I was part of the Chadar Trek from 31st January to 8th February 2019, along with a group of 17 others through Thrillophilia. The trek was extremely well organized and Satya who was the representative from the company was super helpful. He was there with all of us to guide us through all the formalities of the trek and provided a bunch of trekkers with gear they were unable to bring from home. The trek was an unforgettable experience and the porter's tried to make our lives as easy as possible under very harsh climatic conditions. The trek was an exhausting yet exhilarating experience and for those of us who finished it, it will be one we will remember forever. The hotel accommodations provided could definitely be improved by charging a premium. Overall the attention of the staff at Thrillophilia and the commitment with which they perform their duties is commendable. I would definitely recommend others to book through them in the future.

Chadar Trek.... was a JULLEY(Greeting in Ladakhi) to SHABE JUU (Thank You) journey for me, because I was welcomed and greeted at every point of my journey and was thankful to each one of them. My first contact point for chadar was Thrillophilia and for me Satya from Thrillophilia, as he was informative, supportive and demonstrative. He gave us all the necessary information related to our trek, gears, acclimatisation, shopping point, food joint etc. He has been very supportive and always reachable to us, moreover he demonstrated all the requirements to us. Coming back to the trek it welcomes you with different flavours like breathtaking views, amazing sunrise and sunset, majestic and gigantic mountains, freezing cold wind whistling in your ear, white blanket of ice (CHADAR), pure and serene Zanskar river water, frozen waterfall, camping, last but not the least is your amazing crew and team members. It’s not just a trek but a journey to cherish through out your life. I would like to thank Thrillophilia for helping people realising their dream and gift them lifetime memories. Keep rocking guys.

Chadar trek or The Frozen River Trek as it is called by many is truly a once in a lifetime experience. I’m sure you must be wondering, is this experience worth the difficulty it is advertised? To be honest the only real challenge on this trek is if you can get properly acclimatised and can bear the numbing cold (mind you the temperatures can fall to as low as -30degrees in night). All in all its mostly a flat walk with a few occasional patches that need some easy climbing or a knee-deep dunk in Zanskar’s frozen water. Don’t worry the local Ladakhi porters and your tour guides are your best friend. That being said this has to be the most difficult walk as you have to carry a heavy backpack on your shoulders and walk on slippery ice. It’s almost impossible to complete this trek without falling. If you are afraid of hurting your bum the trick is to slide across the surface like penguin (but what’s the fun without falling in the snow amidst the beautiful Zanskar valley). The trek arrangement was good enough and our group size of 17 slightly more than to our liking. Expect lots of nutritious and tasty food cooked while you trek including everyones favourite Maggi and Pasta. How cold you’ll feel is truly different for each individual, only real advice would be to layer up(at least 4) and enjoy the trek. Photography is pretty rewarding but at the same time is absolutely difficult because of the cold and you’ll be amazed on how fast your batteries can deplete.Since you have first 3 days for Acclimatisation which you can spend sightseeing Leh, grab hold of your closest friends and plan this trek because Leh in winter is very mesmerising. However with the state of Chadar deteriorating every year and increasing number of trekkers arriving, this trek’s days are numbered. Do plan to do it as early you can or as soon as you gather courage to do this mighty trek ;)

This was something that I had been looking forward to since four years back when I first heard about it. The mesmerizing photos and the sheer beauty of Ladakh drawing me in, the added challenge of braving through the cold making it more enticing. It was everything that I had been looking forward to and more. Before you even land in Leh, the frigid landscape adorned by snow covered peaks devoid of any vegetation welcomes you with a sign of what is about to come. As soon as you land in Leh, the chilly wind which makes your face and body go numb greets you. The next three days are spent in acclimitazing to the place. Once you start the trek you are welcomed by the beautiful Zanskar with its pristine waters mostly frozen on top(Chadar). The next five days were spent either trying not to slip on the Chadar or just getting through the chilling night inside your sleeping bag. But the journey itself was amazing whether it involved stepping in freezing waters to reach Nerak(frozen waterfall) or climbing hill when the Chadar was broken. Thanks to all the crew including the trek leader Sonam, Irfan, Dorjee and the supporting crew Stenzin, Tundup or Namgyal and many others for making those five days on Chadar feel amazing. Thanks to Satya from Thrillophilia for taking care of everything and making this an unforgettable experience. Your presence among us since Day 1 was like having a friend there.
