The Chadar Trek is best done in January or February when the ice sheet is firm enough to walk for long distances. The temperature is usually twenty degrees below freezing, if not lower. Chadar Trek can be enjoyed by everyone, whether you are a seasoned professional or a first-time trekker. The most difficult aspect of this trek is not the terrain itself, but the extreme cold weather, which can test people of all ages. Proper clothing, trekking shoes, hydration, and food are sufficient for your body to withstand Zanskar's demanding lifestyle, which thrives in subzero temperatures.
