The Chadar trek is one of the most popular winter treks in India. Walking over the long unending distances on the frozen river is an exotic adventure that takes a lot of physical strength and courage to undertake. The challenges of the high-altitude terrain add to the challenge provided by the snow and ice all around. Trekking the Chadar trail is a difficult task but one that is worth every minute spent on it. You will be left with extremely wonderful memories that will leave you with a feeling of pride which will make itself felt every time you take up another challenging task.
