Chadar is more than a 1000 year old trail over a frozen river used by ancient traders of the Zanskar region to reach the city of Leh in winter. Chadar, which literally means 'Layer', refers to the veil of snow and ice that forms over the river. This is the only way in and out of the Zanskar Valley to Leh, when all other routes are closed due to massive snowfall in winter. Its a walk through time, a travel through history, fighting every moment with the biting cold temperature and solving the puzzle of the continuously shifting ice. A must do trek for those seeking adventure to the extreme.

The prominent and major difference between standard & premium package is the accommodation in Leh. While standard offers guest house, the premium will be a 3-star centralized heating hotel with generator backup & running water. In winter, all guest houses will not be able to provide running water (cold or hot) and more than 6 hrs heating with electric or gas heater in a room per day. Water freezes in the bucket and becomes hard to use. Accommodation during Leh is important as you get used to the hard climate in the initial days or want to take a bath before or after your trek.
One of the most unique and magnificent treks of the world, Chadar Trek is hugely popular now. Chadar or cover signifies the frozen sheet of ice that is formed on the raging River Zanskar due to extreme cold as well as due to the less amount of direct sunlight as the river flows through a narrow gorge. Solid ice is best around the time the Chadar trek takes place, from 2nd week of January to 2nd week of February – the time when the coldness is at it maximum during the winter months, hence this time frame is the best time for this Zanskar River trek.
Chadar Trek is the only route available to the villagers in the Padum and Lingshed region to go to Leh and back. Regular up-downs are done by the locals to earn their wages. The trek itself is the quintessential example of the resourcefulness and the indomitable spirit of the Ladakhi people. Though, the trek will soon cease to be the sole mode of access between Leh and Padum in winters. A road is being constructed by blasting off the rock-face above the river. It will be a much safer and convenient route for the locals, but surely mark the end of an ancient local custom.
You need to walk to an average of 5 to 6km. As such anyone with good or average fitness can do this trek. Any kind of cardiac exercise which makes you fitter before this trip is advisable, as it will enable you to enjoy the region more. Overall chadar walk is a moderate trek but the climatic hardness makes it Strenuous according to our grade. Temperature wise it is very cold, though, after the first couple of nights on the Chadar, trekkers are much more adjusted to the bitter cold!
Wearing clothes in layers is much effective is combating the bitter cold, particularly at night. Layer 1 – Starting with inner thermals Layer 2 – full sleeves t-shirt and track pants; Woolen Socks (One double woven woolen socks with one warm nylon or normal woolen socks inside). Carry enough spare socks and other undergarments. Layer 3 – Fleece Jacket. Good thick Woolen head Cap or Balaclava with woolen Muffler Layer 4 – Wind Proof and Water Proof down Jacket Layer 5 – A jacket or another layer of inner thermals. Two Pair of gloves (Thin Woolen inside and outside Wind Proof / Waterproof Snow Gloves). Good Pair of Sun Glasses with Good UV Protection.
Wearing in layers also helps to remove one or two layers as you feel warm due to the activity of trekking; similarly, while going off to sleep in the sleeping bag, a few layers can be removed if feeling uncomfortable. Avoid cotton T-shirts.
Pack similar things such as clothes or toiletries or others in separate polythene bags so they are easier to find and pull out. A trekking pole is absolutely desirable as it greatly helps during the Chadar trek.
We will recommend you to buy a pair of gumboot from Leh market for river water crossing at broken chadar. Also, you can carry good standard trekking shoes for the trek, example Forclaz 100/500 from Quechua. On Chadar, which is solid ice or a slight cover of snow on slippery ice, RockyFeet will provide walking crampon for trekkers. Also, Trek leader will help you to learn a walk over hard ice with the use of crampon. To understand the walk and shoes of chadar in detail please read more at HOW TO WALK ON CHADAR? THE PENGUIN STYLE
We will build a team consists of max 10 participants. These team will be lead by an experienced exploration leader with due mountain medical knowledge. A team of local Zanskar crews will assist us to manage load and kitchen. These people from Zanskar will not only help you combat the extreme winter, also help you to understand the life of Zanskaris, their culture and much more stories untold.
Himalayan water is considered as a clean and mineral water but for safe side we use to boil water and chlorine tablet in our camps, during the trek asks once to trek leader or guide from where to fill water bottles. It is important to keep sipping on water through the trek. as one can get dehydrated and still not feel it due to the cold.
Our team will have the medical kit and oxygen cylinder to support high altitude seriousness. But also it’s important and recommended for every trekker to bring their personal medical kit focusing their own well-known & chronical health issues. Also, it is mandatory to submit Medical certificate and release of liability form prior the adventure.
Depending on the prevailing situation, however, the date of trek completion should always coincide with the original itinerary. You should keep in mind that this is an adventure trip into the remotest region, where many unforeseen events may contribute to the need for a change in itinerary, for example, incomplete formation of Chadar. In such cases, we or your trek leader will suggest the best alternative similar to your original itinerary.
You have only one option to reach Leh during winter, i.e. fly to and fro all other routes are blocked due to extreme winter. Expensive crews rates are more than double in the bitter cold and harsh winter months compare to summer of Ladakh. All food has to be flown into Leh from city outsides, so obviously is very expensive. Fuel since limited is expensive, it takes almost twice the amount of fuel to cook the food than in normal conditions.
Everything is paid for and arranged more than a month before the trekking season, due to the scarcity of material and men during those two extreme cold months.
We were two women from France and we felt very safe when doing the chadar trek on january 2019 with rocky feet team. The staff was fully skilled, excellent, very professionnal, and our guide Tashi was an exceptionnal guide that cares about the safety and the well being of each member of the group. The food ( veg and non veg ) was fresh, various and delicious every day. All staff (from the cook to the porters) were very kind , available , and taking good care of all of us.
The administrative staff that pick us up at the airport and accompany us for the formalities of insurance , medical check up, was incredibly nice , professionnal and was present before the trek and after the trek till our last day to the airport.
We highly recommend rocky feet .read more
Heyy planning for any trek in Himalaya ??
Don't think twise, go with Rockyfeet.
They are the BEST !
Done chadar trek this year with them and I never ever expected such an awesome experience.
A big thanks to management, guids and finally the great great chef who made our trek extra perfect.read more
Considering our safari trip to be the first of it's kind from Rockyfeet, I must say Titash had led us through an amazing journey!! He had minutely taken care of every bits n pieces of our puzzle starting from accommodation to safari bookings! Furthermore the selection of resorts and their hospitality had been to the T! Kudos RockyFeet!!
Had been wishing long for a trip with you guys and finally it paid off and how!! Looking forward to more amazing experiences!!read more
We went on Kang yatse 2 expedition in July'18. It was a wonderful experience. For a particular travel/trek to be memorable, it is important that the services you are being provided are up to the mark. And Rockyfeet, no doubt, was quite successful in that. Starting from the arrangement of accommodation at Leh, the quality of food, tents and sleeping bags on the trek, the hygiene maintained, the quality of technical instruments used for climbing, the profiles of their guides and the hospitality shown- everything was perfect. I would recommend anyone without a second thought to go with Rockyfeet. It will be a lifetime experience, for sure!read more
It was a nice experience with Rockyfeet when we had a trip to Ladakh. We always got proper response in email whenever we had queries prior to the trip. Everything was perfectly arranged by Arnab. Our stay, food, transportation in Leh, Pangong, Nubra, Tso Moriri were excellent. We loved everything about the trip. We would love to travel with them again.read more
Whatever, it maybe the first experience or last experience; once a experience always a experience.
But trekking experience with Rocky Feet was just amazing. I don't know about other trekking organisations because it was my first trekking to singalila pass trek. But I am confident enough that I don't need to contact any other organizations in near future. Although a few words are not enough to describe to whole trekking experience, but till I want to highlight some points are, 1)Every night at dinner place there was a team meeting how to fulfill the trekkers desire more and more and make the experience more passionate. 2) There were another 2-3 groups at the same campsite. But I will say our tent were far better than others as design point of view. 3)And no words to describe the hospitality of supporting team. So special thanks to our team leader Titash and obviously the whole RockyFeet team.read more
This is the first time I am reviewing a trip/journey. So please ignore the mistakes from my side. The long waited trip finally happened only because of our trek leader Titash.
1. Our very own Salim Ali and not so strict trek leader Mr. Titash! Thanks to him for spotting nearly about 100 species of birds during this trek.
2. The local team and trek guide, John daju. I am truly short of words to describe their hospitality.
3. Time to time routine body check up and healthy diet on each occasion.
4. Very good camping material specially sleeping bags. CONS: (read Suggestions)
1. Nothing as such. But I would like to have camp site in serenity rather to have it by the side of a trekkers hut (in Phalut) or in the middle of the village (in Gorkhey). I would prefer camping site like in Thulu Dhaap or in Kalijhar any time. Thanks to Rockyfeet. Hope to trek with you again,very soon 🙂read more
Rockyfeet arranged a guided tour of sandakphu phalut for two of our friends early march 2018. The guide they privided kewal rai was excellent. both of us really enjoyed our stay and felt every layers of natural beauty..fog rain sunshine snow blizzard u name it we had it all. they have good contacts with local people and arrange for good homestay and good food even in most remote places. thank you rockyfeet..eager to do another trekking adventure.a special thanks to wriju.read more
„...Sometimes accidents can happen“ is what we got told on our first day. And so we accidentally fell in love with Sikkim. We did the 7-day Singalila trek with Rocky in Feb 18 and could not have made a better choice. All the friendly and warmly people that have been with us in those days made this trip a very unique experience. Everything was well organized and food was really delicious and surely there was no risk of starving :). We also really liked the trek where we could enjoy a breathtaking view of the Kangchenjunga which was a great highlight of our trip. Thanks again also to our trek leader, Wriju, whose company we really appreciated and who also became a good friend.read more
I have done 2 high altitude treks with RockyFeet. I still do not know how they make money. Their level of attention to health and safety, selection of crew members, food and accommodation is world class. The itinerary they design is not only well crafted but also organic, it always leaves one with more than what they signed up for. They are in it for the adventure and for conservation. Be it removing plastic at 15,000 FT or not lighting a bonfire to protect the soil, you see genuine passion and interest in their trek leads and it certainly outlives the trek. I hope you will give them a chance. They are a group of bright & talented naturalists/explorers/adventure seekers or whatever the word is for these kind of misfits.read more
Couldn't have hoped for a better Chadar trek.
Right from the accommodations in Leh to the crampons for the trek, everything was perfect.
Our trek leader- Etosha and guide- Gyalson ji were incredible. They were knowledgeful, experienced and a bag of fun. Having seen other organizers along the trek- I would wholeheartedly recommend Rocky Feet. Also a sincere request- when on the trek, please do not litter. Trekking on the Chadar is a privilege, let's keep it clean. Hope you have fun!read more
Insane. Breathtaking. Exhilarating. Just back from a beautiful beautiful world. Never dreamt of it, never imagined or seen or known - The Zanskar.
A month ago I signed up for the mighty Chadar trek, and man, it was just mind blowing. Never been to such an amazingly organized expedition and experience with full of surprises, safety, fun, pamper, motivation and customizations! Everything was so nicely set up! From airport pick ups, to pre-obtained permits, gorgeous homestays, delicious food, priority on health and safety, an organized trip to in and around the town, proper time provided to rest and recreate, and of course, a lot of Cafe hopping. The itinerary was so relaxed, didn't even feel if I was actually a couple thousand miles away from home, and top it all, the sweetest set of professionals running this NGO - Etosha and Arnab! Six people, six days, and unlimited surprises right in the middle of nowhere. Somewhere, we people 'achieve' experiences, while this group, had literally 'created' them. Thank you, for such memories! And amazing moments! Coming back next season, for something different! Just. Pure. Love.
Hats off!read more
We had the most enriching experience with RockyFeet. We attempted Stok Kangri Summit and everything was done as planned. The amenities prvided by RockyFeet at such an altitude where indeed done with great pains to make us very confortable. The food and tents were absolutely superb and there was no difficulty whatsoever because of the extreme weather. Each day with RockyFeet was a real pleasure because they assured that we are comfortable during the trek. The patience and techniques adopted by RockyFeet are indeed marvelous so I recommend all of you to join RockyFeet for your future treks.read more
My friends and I did a trip to Leh Ladakh this August and we are glad we decided to go via RockyFeet. Things you'd want to do in your trip are to enjoy, explore, meet new people and basically do whatever you feel like doing, right? Well, RockyFeet had all four of them covered. We enjoyed…
Usually when something goes wrong we call up the tour operator to sort it out. RockyFeet didn't give us even one chance to do that. Everything from start to finish was taken care of. Everything happened like clockwork. All we had to do was enjoy, which we did. We explored…
We travelled a lot of places there (Srinagar, Kargil, Leh, Nubra Valley, Pangong etc.) and we got the best accommodation the place could offer, that too at good prices. RockyFeet went the extra mile by getting us tents in a good spot beside Pangong Lake where we didn’t have to feel the full brunt of the harsh winds throughout the night. Very thoughtful of them. We met many good people…
RockyFeet's connections are with quality people. The boat house owner in Srinagar, the drivers and the hotel employees were all good, courteous and friendly people. Each and every one of them took care of us as they would their own people. We did whatever we felt like doing…
My friends and I are extremely indecisive and we didn’t want to be confined to a set plan. So there were many changes and last minute improvisations from our side and RockyFeet handled these random requests with great professionalism and patience. The highlight of our trip was meeting Arnab Ghosh and Etosha. They are genuinely nice and friendly people who did a splendid job in taking care of us when we were there. Turns out they’re interesting and fun people too. They accompanied us for river rafting and it was a lot of fun with them around.
Thank you guys. Loved the trip. Would choose you guys in a heartbeat for our next trip. BTW, there was a nice surprise at the end of our trip, courtesy RockyFeet. Hope the other reviews haven’t spoiled it already.read more
We did Kang Yatse with Rocky Feet. It is very easy for me to say that it was one of the best organised treks I have been a part of. Etosha and the team were experienced and were prepared for everything. I had my low phases when I was not keeping too well, they knew what would work best. I bounced back. The food was great. Chai, hot chocolate, popcorn, and other things kept pouring in when needed. Great care was taken to ensure that we were keeping fine. They also ensured that we had a lot of fun. Can't wait to go back! 🙂read more
Our trek to Kang Yatse 2 was the first time we travelled with RockyFeet. Etosha accompanied us on the trek. She was a great leader, making sure even the last trekker was motivated enough and encouraged everyone to walk together as a team. She was very considerate of everyone's needs (especially food) and kept a check on everyone's health throughout. Our kitchen staff, porters and guides were all great company too and very efficient. Their expertise and professionalism showed every single day, and the team managed to establish a great rapport with us. The time we spent with Etosha & Arnab (before the trek) was a great learning experience. They were both very hospitable and very forthcoming about what they do and their experiences with regards to trekking and organising. I definitely recommend them!read more

Last January I went to Chadar trek with Rockyfeet.Really had a excellent experience with them.Lots of thinks to learn from Arnab da for amateur trekkers like me.Appreciate their initiative for keeping the environment clean and raise awareness among fellow trekkers,tourists.Keep up the good work Rockyfeet.Looking forward to have an another adventure through trekking with Rockyfeet.Thanks.read more
I am a member of the RockyFeet society. The immense efforts of Boro ( Arnab Ghosh ) to raise the organization like a single parent, working late nights for years, in spite of having a day job is what is taking it ahead towards achieving a dream of a sustainable future by opening up people's senses towards the natural world and spreading the idea of conservation as a way of life with a three pronged approach; Explore, educate and conserve. The seeds of passion towards Nature and dedication to a cause, that he has planted in the rest of us has helped me realize my dreams in life and led me to the long and winding path of becoming a true RockyFeet myself. It also shows in the appreciation that we have received unanimously from all our eco-tourists, school children we have worked with, agencies that have partnered with us in our ventures and everyone else I can think of. Travel with RockyFeet to learn more about this greener approach to life and to raise a fund for the environment to be used in our educational and conservational ventures.read more
I have been to Chadar trek in January 2017 with RockyFeet. It was one of the best organized treks I have been to. One good thing was trekking in small batches which made it comfortable for both trekkers and organizers. There was a good coordination between trek leaders and local people for planning the trek. Considering extreme weather of Ladakh in January, we did not face any problem related to accommodation and food. Most importantly, we had a great time throughout the trek. The trek was completed safely as scheduled. The things I liked about RockyFeet are including local people in the trek and encouraging responsible eco-friendly trekking. Looking forward to the next trek with RockyFeet! 🙂read more
Har ki dun was not just a visit to the himalayas but an experience that is etched in my memory. The magnificent himalayas, the flowing water, the cold nights, the early morning sun rays,the long walks, the beautiful people, the innocent smiles, the simple lives, the never complaining mules, the hot food and the laughter in the silence can never be forgotten. Trekking is more about an experience rather than just visiting a place and Rockyfeet helps one experience the beauty of trekking. Life is about memories, and this memory would last forever.
Thanks Arnab and his team, thanks Rockyfeet !!!read more
Rockyfeet is not your ordinary trek operator. They are more of visionaries, with a plan to explore the world, conserve the indigenous habitats and educate naive travelers like you and me.
Their techie-turned-nomad CEO, Arnab, agreed to take a group of five to Har ki dun. And quite honestly, none of us knew what we were signing up for. Our group had experienced and first-time trekkers but there was never a fall-out. Arnab and the village guides made sure that we walked at a pace comfortable to us. Expecting maggi and nutribars at that elevation, we were all pleasantly surprised with three course meals prepared by the village cook. Thanks to the generous mules, we never carried any luggage. The focus remained on the majestic mountains surrounding us. The trek was also perfectly designed to our fitness levels so we neither felt too exerted, nor too relaxed! Har ki dun means the valley of gods, and rightly so. The views are spectacular. And no photograph can do justice to it. But this trek was a lot more than the Himalayan scenes. It was about village life, community living, self-discipline and really caring for the environment and its inhabitants. With no technology to entertain us, we would laugh and chat for hours around the fire. It was a different life indeed. Now that we are back to our usual routines, workplaces and homes, life seems to be going on just the way it was. But we all feel the change.
Perhaps we have become more empathetic, perhaps we have learned to live with the bare necessities, perhaps we are more sensitive of everything and everyone around us. Perhaps.
This trek was more than just wanderlust. It was more of a self-awareness exercise with my lungs screaming for oxygen at 3900 metres above sea level. And I completely credit Arnab and Rockyfeet for letting us experience this level of rejuvenation in our lifetime. Dazzling blues skies, heart-warming emotions, sweet melodies of birds, wood-fire roasted food, moods and hues of the great Himalayas. Sigh! How I long to go back..read more
We took the ladakh on wheels package from rocky feet and the experience was mind blowing. From hotel to car to assistance to food, experience was too good. We stayed in one of the best tents in pangong n nubra. Kudos to the team...read more
Well, the experience was good and the team too.We joined them for Bramhatal trek, and they took well care from our... pickup point to drop. They did cover the pickup and drop in their expense, along with homestay for a small group and mule expenses for the trek. All in all, I'd say better to go with them if you have a group of more than 6 people.read more
Being my first trek, I was super vigilant in getting the best operator on board to help me with the preparation and the... overall organisation.I narrowed down on Rockyfeet after a lot of deliberation. It was indeed an excellent choice. Arnab and his team in doing a fabulous job.I felt that Rockyfeet was able to induce a personal touch with the participants which helped in making a tight bond amongst all.The overall organisation was immaculate in terms of guides (Mr. Lappu and Mr. Sonam), food (awesome cooks), porters (Lifeline of the trek), tenting facilities, equipments Etc.The group was well cared for during the entire trek. Rockyfeet has definitly proved my choise to be right and I shall recommend all to go ahead with the same.With Arnab, felt like being with my own brother. He comes in with immense knowledge and experiences to share. I do recomend that his knowledge be exploited to the fullest. He was extremely patient and cheerful in answering all my queries with his own personal experiences. I left Leh with a warm heart and new friends and am already planning on the next trek with Rockyfeet.Kudos Guys, you made my trip!Best Regards,Hiteshread more
