Day 1:

Arrival at Leh (3500 m)

  • Leh, which lies at an altitude of more than 3500 metres above sea level, is the second largest district in the country
  • In winters, as most passes leading to Leh are closed, you will be flown to the Leh airport which has the distinction of being the highest airport in the world
  • As soon you land at the airport, you will be greeted by dry and cold air, but what will take all your attention is the lofty, snow-capped mountains all around; a sight that will remain with you forever
  • After completing the arrival formalities and picking up your bags from the baggage counter, take a taxi and proceed towards the pre-arranged hotel
  • Enjoy an overnight stay in the hotel.

Day 2:

Acclimatization Walk in Leh

  • Get up early in the morning and begin the process of acclimatization at high altitude
  • Proceed to walk towards Shanti Stupa, a sacred Buddhist stupa, from where you will get an opportunity to witness a beautiful view of the sunrise and a panoramic sight of the town of Leh
  • Stay hydrated as you spend your first day of the trek in Leh

Day 3:

Getting a medical check-up at SNM Hospital

  • Due to the challenging nature of this particular trek, government has made it mandatory for participants to acquire medical certification before they undertake Chadar trek
  • A clearance certificate upon a medical check-up will be issued by the Sonam Narbu Hospital
  • One will get a certificate only when adequately fit and acclimatized for the trek

Day 4:

Shingra Koma and Somo Paldar

  • Enjoy tea and breakfast in the morning and start your journey by driving to Shingra Koma
  • This ride is not for the faint-hearted as bumpy roads and hairpin bends are quite common on this route
  • The sight of the surrounding high mountains will give you a sense of awe
  • After a point, you will have to deboard from the vehicle and trek towards Somo Paldar campsite

Day 5:

Trek to Dib Cave / Tibb

  • Today, you will set out to trek to Dib Cave/Tibb
  • During the day, you will behold the breathtaking beauty of the region including ravines and gorges
  • You might not see sunshine properly as the steep cliffs in this area obstruct them
  • Once you reach Dib, you will see a large cave
  • This is the place where you will halt for the night and rest
  • Butter tea would be offered and we recommend you to try it
  • Enjoy overnight stay at the campsite

Day 6:

Dib Cave / Tibb to Camp at Naerak

  • Today, you will trek the most scenic part of the region and get a chance to witness the largest frozen waterfall and prayer flags
  • The bridge built next to the site of the waterfall is used in summers to reach Zanskar from Leh
  • Thereafter, you can proceed towards the village of Naerak to mingle with the locals and understand their way of living
  • Stay overnight at the village camp comfortably

Day 7:

Naerak to Tibb

  • On this particular day, start your return trip and proceed towards Tibb
  • The return trail would not be easy and the river quickly reacts to any change in the temperature
  • By now the frozen river might have taken an entirely new form
  • On the way back, admire the beauty of the region, click pictures and meet locals, who can be seen wearing traditional woolen Gonchas (robes)
  • Upon Dib Cave, relax and stay overnight at the campsite

Day 8:

Tibb to Shingra Koma & Back To Leh

  • In the morning, get ready to leave Tibb and proceed towards Shingra Koma, crossing Gyalpo
  • The trail today will give you a chance to witness high mountains and pugmarks of wild animals like snow leopards, ibex and foxes
  • If lucky, you just might spot a leopard; even if you do not, then at least be sure, you would be watched by them
  • In the evening, drive back to Leh and stay overnight at the hotel

Day 9:

Departure from Leh

  • Today, the mesmeric journey to one of the finest scenic destinations of India will ultimately come to an end
  • The entire experience, we are sure, would give you an unmatchable feeling of achievement and satisfaction
  • In the morning, check-out from the guesthouse and depart from the Leh airport
