Event Details


Day 1 - Flight to Leh
  • Air route is the only way to reach Leh during the blood-jamming winter season. All flights reach Leh in the morning, before noon strikes. Do not forget to look at the awe-striking surge mountain range, covered by a snowy blanket as soon as your plane enters the Ladakh region, which is 11,800ft higher than trekking area.
  • Also, put on all warm clothes like the jacket, cap and gloves to face the always-negative temperature and never-ending cold weather of the place. You will get to see white layers of snow, which sometimes convert to bulky sheets of ice.
  • Keep an eye on your foot to prevent sliding or falling. Don’t keep your shopping pending for Leh as the city is kept partially closed during the winters. Only the shops, fulfilling the primary needs stay opened. Location’s temperature will be around -10°C in day duration and below -16°C in nights. So, try staying at hotel rooms at dawn, instead of roaming out in the cold breezes.
Day 2 - Road Journey to Chilling (3 hours) and Trekking at Tilat Sumdo (1-2 hours)
  • Enjoy the most beautiful bus journey of your lifetime to Chilling on the Leh-Srinagar highway amidst the frozen clod desert. We will cross the confluence point of Indus and Zanskar River and drive further along side of the Zanskar River till our trekking point. We can see the Chadar while sitting on the vehicle as we will travel almost 40 kilometers along side of the frozen river. The last part of the road is not paved properly and it is very narrow and dusty. Today’s trek will make you learn many things like how to walk on rock solid slippery ice. Today’s destination Tilat Sumdo (Sumdo means confluence of 2 rivers) will come after 1.5 hours of trekking and we will have our campsite in this place overnight in Tent.
