Day 01: (Leh) Arrival in Leh (3500 m)

Leh, which lies at an altitude of more than 3500 meters above sea level, is the second-
largest UT in the country. In winters, as most passes leading to Leh are closed, you will

be flown to the Leh airport which has the distinction of being the highest airport in the
As soon you land at the airport, you will be greeted by dry and cold air, but what will
take all your attention is the lofty, snow-capped mountains all around; a sight that will
remain with you forever. After completing the arrival formalities and picking up your
bags from the baggage counter, take a taxi and proceed towards the pre-arranged
hotel or guest house. Enjoy an overnight stay in the hotel or guest house.

Day 02: (Leh) Acclimatization Walk in Leh

Get up early in the morning and begin the process of acclimatization at high altitude.
Proceed to walk towards Shanti Stupa, a sacred Buddhist stupa, from where you will get
an opportunity to witness a beautiful view of the sunrise and a panoramic sight of the
town of Leh.
Stay hydrated as you spend your first day of the trek in Leh.

Day 03: (Leh) Getting a medical check-up at Medical Camp in Leh Market

Due to the challenging nature of this particular trek, the government has made it
mandatory for participants to acquire medical certification before they undertake the
Chadar Trek. A clearance certificate upon a medical check-up will be issued by the
ALTOA designated medical camp. One will get a certificate only when adequately fit
and acclimatized for the trek.

Day 04: (Shingra Koma) Shingra Koma and Somo Paldar

Enjoy tea and breakfast in the morning and start your journey by driving to Shingra
Koma. This ride is not for the faint-hearted as bumpy roads and hairpin bends are
quite common on this route. The sight of the surrounding high mountains will give you a
sense of awe. After a point, you will have to deboard from the vehicle and trek towards
the Somo Paldar campsite.
Your Chadar trek expedition starts here.

Day 05: (Dib Cave/Tibb) Trek to Dib Cave/Tibb

Today, you will set out to trek to Dib Cave/Tibb. During the day, you will behold the

breathtaking beauty of the region including ravines and gorges. You might not
see sunshine properly as the steep cliffs in this area obstruct them. Once you
reach Dib, you will see a large cave. This is the place where you will halt for
the night and rest. Butter tea would be offered and we recommend you try it.
Enjoy an overnight stay at the campsite.

Day 06: (Narek Waterfall) Dib Cave/Tibb to Camp at Naerak Frozen Waterfall

Today, you will trek the most scenic part of the region and get a chance to witness the
largest frozen waterfall and prayer flags. The bridge built next to the site of the
waterfall is used in summers to reach Zanskar from Leh. Thereafter, you can proceed
towards the village of Naerak to mingle with the locals and understand their way of
living. Stay overnight at the village camp comfortably.

Day 07: (Tibb) Naerak to Tibb

On this particular day, start your return trip and proceed towards Tibb. The return trail
would not be easy and the river quickly reacts to any change in the temperature. By
now the frozen river might have taken an entirely new form. On the way back, admire
the beauty of the region, click pictures and meet locals, who can be seen wearing
traditional woolen Gonchas (robes). Upon Dib Cave, relax and stay overnight at the

Day 08: (Leh) Tibb to Shingra Koma & Back To Leh

In the morning, get ready to leave Tibb and proceed towards Shingra Koma, crossing
Gyalpo. The trail today will give you a chance to witness high mountains and pugmarks
of wild animals like snow leopards, ibex, and foxes. If lucky, you just might spot a
leopard; even if you do not, then at least be sure, you would be watched by them.
In the evening, drive back to Leh and stay overnight at the hotel.

Day 09: Departure from Leh

Today, the mesmeric journey to one of the finest scenic destinations of India will
ultimately come to an end. The entire experience, we are sure, would give you an
unmatchable feeling of achievement and satisfaction. In the morning, check out from
the guesthouse and depart from the Leh airport.
