When it comes to traveling, I like to have a plan so that I know what to expect when. That is exactly how I thought my first solo vacation was going to go but little did I know that the very first day of my first vacation in years was going to turn into some rather memorable and not for the reasons you’d imagine.
Even though my first post was a rant against the Chadar trek, it is still a cherished memory. What follows is my account of the trek and the story of how we got stuck and an eventual ‘escape’ from the trek. Its not as dramatic as it sounds but it is still a good read!
Yes the Chadar trek is an experience to behold. Yes it may be a one of a kind experience. Yes its really popular and may soon disappear. But all of this aside, there is something really wrong with the trek. Something so wrong in fact, that I would not consider going back for it even though we didn’t make it to the end.
