Chadar Trek

Do’s & Don’ts to always keep in mind of Chadar Trek

The Chadar Trek is undoubtedly one of the most preferred Himalayan treks of all treks. The temperature in this region is always below zero, ranging between -5 to -35 degrees, which is definitely not inviting at all. But once you get there, we assure you that it will truly be a worthwhile experience that you can cherish forever. The thought of walking on a frozen river for almost 8 hours a day at an altitude of almost 11,000 feet, must be giving you chills right now, but the feeling is going to be the exact opposite once you embark on this beautiful frozen river trek.
