Why is our Chadar Trek Cheaper, despite the price being higher?
Chadar Trek is Star trek. It is the most popular trek. Walking on the frozen is on everybody’s bucket list. The demand for this trek is tremendous. Probably, that is why every travel company, even locals have started conducting Chadar frozen river trek. With so many organisations providing this trek, there is a drastic change in the price of the Chadar trek. The price of this trek is a controversy these days. It is the only trek that is offered with so many variations in the package. Despite that, we always claim that we offer the best market price for The Chadar Trek. Pertaining to that, many trekkers enquire about our package and how we charge. Therefore, here’s a proper description of why we offer the best price for Chadar.
Many argue that money can be saved on accommodation. Well, it might be true for other travel places but not for the Chadar trek. Especially with minus temperatures right from Leh. Good and warm sleep is needed for the hour however cold it is outside. We understand that and therefore, we offer heated rooms from Leh itself. There are many arguments about rooms being centrally heated or only heated. Let’s clarify that first.
- Non-heated rooms:
Such rooms have nothing to keep the room warm. Only extra blankets will be given.
- Heated rooms:
In these rooms, a heater is attached in the room that is run on electricity or LPG gas. Gas-operated heaters are not good as they give out combustion gases. At high altitudes where the oxygen level is already low, such gases are not good to be inhaled. To avoid that, these heaters are timer based.
- Centrally heated rooms:
Many hotels have this facility nowadays where the heater is somewhere on the terrace. The heat is then circulated to all the rooms of the hotel through pipes. This is extremely safe as the actual heat generation happens far away and not in the rooms.
At TTH we offer attached washroom and Centrally Heated rooms from Leh itself.
2- Two men sharing shelters
If you have trekked with us you know that we have two-person sharing tents. The same is followed on the Chadar trek also. Our guesthouses are also two sharing. Only in extreme weather conditions when many groups are stuck at camps and cannot move ahead, we accommodate 3 trekkers in one room.
3- Short Sight Seeing
On day 2, we have included a short sightseeing activity. We observed that on the second day as there is the whole day for exploring Leh trekkers wander around. Therefore, we have included it in our package where we make all the arrangements for you all to roam around in Leh. The advantage is, we have planned it such that it is strainless which eventually does not affect body acclimatisation. If you know transport for 2-3 people is expensive, when in a group it is cheaper and more fun. We cover all the major spots on Leh. We take care of everything.
4- Renting is available
If you are aware that Leh is closed in winter. Renting equipment is not possible from Leh. But with TTH we offer rentals for our trekkers. This is to make life easy for trekkers who wish to not invest in expensive gear.
5- Skilled and Qualified team
And last but not least, as we always proudly claim, our Team is highly experienced and qualified. Chadar Trek is a risky trek. There are unpredictable incidents of Chadar breaking, sudden water level rising, AMS etc. We have always rescued our trekkers and others safely. Our Trek Leaders are experienced, First Aid and Mountaineering Courses certified. Not only that, our Local guides are also skilled. We guarantee the safety of the trekkers.
