When I had started trekking I did not know I would end up making it my profession and the first major trek I took was Chadar Trek.
That time there were only 2 or 3 companies who were organizing Chadar Trek but as a student it was not possible for me to go with a travel company as they were charging nearly INR 85,000. So I decided to look for some veterans who could help me with Chadar.
Luckily I met an old experienced army officer who was going for the same trek. Only during the planning stages I was told that Chadar Trek stretches as far as Padum village. Thankfully the trek was half sponsored by that army officer for me (i guess i was lucky !) otherwise it would not have been possible for me to embark that powerful journey.
But one thing is for sure – my physical fitness was checked while trekking with people from the armed forces as we completed the trek within 8 days. We touched the last village on Chadar -“Padum village” and came back within 8 days. The normal time taken for the same trek is 15 days.
But I believe only hardcore trekkers should go for the full chadar trek version.
Others can opt for trekking upto Lingshed village where they have the option of staying in a “village homestay” plus they get to see the “Lingshed solar school” along with the “Lingshed Monastery” which is a great experience in itself. This trek is good for the first timers also as it requires more of mental fitness.
Chadar Trek is incomplete without visiting Lingshed village.
