Preparing yourself for a tough and challenging trek can seem troublesome. In reality, that’s not the case. With some simple tips, you can easily prepare yourself for Chadar frozen trek. Due to the high Chadar trek altitude, the air gets thinner, and you may be gasping for oxygen. When the human body reaches a height of 7,000 feet or 2,100 metres above sea level, oxygen levels in the hemoglobin begin to dip. Chadar trek is at a height of 11,000 feet above sea level.


It’s important to understand that the human body has long-term and short-term adaptations to high altitude. This allows you to breathe without any major issues. However, you still need to prepare yourself for the experience and difficulty. Here are some tips you can use to ensure a hassle-free trip.
