**Chadar Trek (Leh to Padum) 14 days

  • Fixed Departure Date : 18th Jan – 31st Jan, 2017
Itinerary :: Full Chadar Trek (14 Days including 1 back-up day).
Day 1: arrival leh
Arrive in leh. Transfer to hotel rest for acclimatization (strictly a Rest day).
 
Day 2: drive to tilat sumdo-3100m ( 2 hrs)
It takes about an hour to get used to the “ladakhi shuffle” of walking on the frozen zanskar. Boots with “sticky” soles are helpful as well as the poles. Practise walking in the afternoon. Camp at tilat sumdo.
 
Day 3: trek to shingra yokma – 5hrs
Leave camp by about 8.30am. Continue along the chadar to the cave at bakula bawo. It is believed that the first bakula rinpoche of ladakh spent a week meditating in this cave. A juniper tree above the cave is considered holy to the locals who traverse this gorge. Camp at shingra.
 
Day 4: shingra yokma to tipkyeak bawo – 6 1/2 to 7 hrs
Leave camp by about 8.30am. We stop for lunch at tsemodo for about an hour and continue to camp at tipp bawo. The water in this particular section tends to melt more easily and we may at times have to traverse the steep rocks due to the melting ice. If there is no proper campsite, we will go further to camp at gyalpo. – 3170m. Camp at tipp bawo.
 
Day 5: tipkyeak bawa to nyerak pulu (3390m) – 6 – 7 hrs
This can become a difficult day if the chadar is not very firm. The scenery though is stunning as we pass incredible frozen waterfalls which look like ice cliffs. If you look closely chances are that you will see blue sheep, ibex clinging onto the cliffs. Stop for lunch enroute at yokmado near one of the many caves used by the zanskaris at night and continue to walk on the chadar to camp at nyerak pulu. The village is high above the river. (if the chadar is in good condition this walk will take about 6 hrs otherwise it may take upto 8 hrs). Camp at nyerak.
 
Day 6: nyerak pullu to tsarak dho (3400m)- drive to padum – 2 hrs
Visit the monastery in the morning then trek for 2 hrs through the valley before reaching the frozen chadar. We then begin our walk on the frozen river to tsarak dho. 5 – 6hrs and from there the will pickup and drive to centre of the Zanskar region Padum.
