Ladakh the magnificent mountain dessert kingdom provides a fitting backdrop for this trip that attempts to do it all. Ladakh is famed for its high passes, brackish water lakes, a stunning lunar landscape, a Buddhist culture warped in time, deep blue endless skies, and a landscape that is larger than life. Chadar Trek It is an adventure seekers paradise. Many have said Ladakh is the most beautiful place in the world.

Itinerary

  • Day 1

    ARRIVE AT LEH (3500 M)

    Arrive in Leh airport where you would be greeted by our representative and transferred to your hotel. Today, we would spend the day in the room itself to acclimatise to the high altitude. This is absolutely necessary and is most important for the days ahead. Overnight in the hotel.

  • Day 2

    LEH – CHILLING – TILAT DO (3200 M) DRIVE/3-4 HRS & TREK/1 HR

    Post breakfast, we take a beautiful drive through the beautiful scenery with your first views of the Indus river and later the Zanskar river at their confluence at Nimoo. From Nimoo you follow the Zanskar to the roadhead at Tilat Do. From here we cross the Zanskar and depending on the time available we camp on the other side of the river or we continue ahead a bit before setting up camp for the night. Overnight in trekking tents.

  • Day 3

    TILAT DO – SHINGRA (3350 M) TREK 5-6 HRS

    We begin the day at 7:00 am with a cup of hot tea. After breakfast, we set off on the “Chadar” which will be our routine for the rest of the trek. Today, we will trek close to 10-12 kms depending on the fitness of the group. Though our objective would be to get to Shingra we could camp earlier also in case the going gets tough during the day. This is something that we would follow all through the trek where we would keep the itinerary flexible to accommodate the group depending on fitness levels. Overnight in trekking tents.

  • Day 4

    SHINGRA – TILAT DO (3200 M) – LEH TREK 6-7 HRS & DRIVE 3-4 HRS

    Today is the last trek day as we trek back towards Tilat Do. Here we cross the frozen Zanskar for the last time and then board our vehicles to drive back to Leh. Once in Leh, we check into our hotel and have a relaxing hot water bath and relive the memories of this wonderful trek. Overnight in the hotel.

  • Day 5

    DEPART FROM LEH
