Day 1 - Reach Leh by Flight and rest for the day Complete rest during the day to get acclimatized to high altitude and prepare for the trek. Stay over night at the hotel.


Day 2 - Leh to Chiling drive & Trek to Tilat sumdo - rest and acclimatize for the day Morning drive to the Chilling, one of the most famous villages in Ladakh, known for craftsmanship, especially the metal works. One the way, we will take a brief halt to experience the magnificent confluence of River Zanskar and Indus. Touching the Chadar first time, we start the trek for 1-2 hrs along the magnificent frozen river Zanskar till Tilat Sumdo. Overnight in cave/camp/tent. Also learn the fun way to adjust yourself to Ladakhi shuffle walk style on the frozen slippery ice of River Zanskar.


Day 3 - Tilat Sumdo to Shingrak yogma trek After the breakfast call at 7:30 am and an early departure, the walk on the Chadar has fully started. Hearing the different sounds of Chadar forming and breaking, you will soon get familiar where the Chadar or the ice cover is thick and thin. With a early lunch break in between, we would soon reach the majestic.


Day 4 - Shingrak yogma to Tilat Sumdo trek drive back to Leh Though today is the longest day of the trek, we pass through some magnificent beautiful waterfalls and frozen ice cliffs on the left – it is like walking through a giant freezer! The walk also crosses through narrow gorges, where the trekker may have to climb briefly on to the rocky river bank. The sharp bends and current of the river breaks the ice in some places. Lunch in between on a flat rocky hill side by the river


Day 5 - Departure Airport drop to catch early morning flight.
