The walk on ice trek in Chadar was the best trek that I had ever taken. I had a really awesome time trekking and walking in the frozen ice of Chadar mountains. The amazing trek covered a lot of major peaks, and in my opinion, this is the best thing to do in Ladakh. I recommend this trek to all trek lovers.

While the trek is fun and challenging, the climatic conditions are bizarre. This makes life tougher. However, with proper equipments for stay being provided, we did not feel that cold at all. 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 have taken this trek a few times now. Once in summer and a couple of times in the winter! If you want to experience the ice walk, take only in winter as in the summers, the region will be vibrant but obviously there will be no ice. It was all filled with colours of the nature, flora. It will be charmingly beautiful. I have taken this trek during August to October for a couple of years. When I took this trek in the October month, i.e., during the winter, it was awesome. It was indeed the right time to do trekking. This place was totally filled with ice and snow.

You will definitely love this trek. This place is nicely snuggled deep within the snow-filled mountains and ice. This area feels like a blanket of ice on the town. The beauty of this trek is the frozen river. This river is WOW. It tempts thousands of travellers to visit this place. There are trekkers from across the world here. Even when I was on this trek, most of my co trekkers were from various parts of the world.

This trek is also popularly known as the 'Chadar Trek.' WOW is the word. This trek is such a brilliant trek for anyone to take. As a trekker I loved it totally. Take this trek to know how amazing it is. That being said, this is considered as one of the challenging as well as tricky treks in the world. I am so amazed by the beauty of this trek.

The trek is a fine and a nice trek. No matter how many times I visit, this place just captivates me like never before. I do not know what I am attracted to: charming mountain peaks, or the sapphire lakes; the exigent trekking trails or the charming valley; this trek is awesome and brilliant for all of these obvious reasons. What an amazing trek to take! That being said, I wish that the food was better.

Ladakh is always a mesmerising place. This was a fine and a nice trek. This place has its own magical charm and beauty; that’s a big positive of this spot. The adorable thing about this trek was the snow clad mountains.

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 was tedious. Or other option was crossing rivers, i.e. walk on frozen river. That was risky too. Also, this trek is quite tiring. Thanks to the climate conditions that are bizarre. I still love this trek. This is a trek that you should not miss.

While the word snow trek may seem fun, most of the times, a thick blanket of snow gets formed on the mountains, thus the name Chadar Trek. One might have to cross boulders besides the river too. I would recommend it to all avid trekkers out here. It is pretty tough and tedious trek overall.

I feel that this trek is not that great as it is hyped. This trek is all about usual trekking stuff. Plus there is no year long ice walk. Thanks to global warming. I don’t even know why this is marketed and known as an ice trek, when the ice or snow is very less. I am an avid trekker, and I have taken superior treks abroad. This is just a basic and same in comparison to those. The trek is challenging, that is a welcome relief.

The reason for this name, Chadar Trek, is due to the formation of a dense, thick blanket of the snow. A kind advice is that if you are not a pro trekker, then do not do this trek. I struggled a big time with this trek. It is not an easy job. I saw people who are doing it for 5 years now, feel exhausted and worn out.
