    Hi shubhgupta,

    If you have friends who are willing to do Chadar trek, then you should do it independently by hiring local trek operator in ADVANCE.
    Availability of rooms in Leh is less in winter, you need to work on this.
    I suggest to go with a local trek operator and book it prior in advance. When booking in advance, make a checklist ( essential things to be carried on trek) and bargain accordingly.
    Check this, its comparatively cheap and have heard positive reviews from fellow BCMTian where he completed Hampta pass trek early in peak season.
    Chadar trek - Renok Adventures

    15 days ? Flights get delay most of the time from Delhi in winter.
    Keep atleast 2- 3 buffer days + 15 days.(You never know).

    Cheers and take care.

    You can also contact shantitours.com, run by the same folks who run Shanti Guest House in Leh. They have been organizing Chadar and various other treks for quite a while now.

    [MENTION=333]rkbharat[/MENTION] was also thinking about doing the trek, so might want to contact him and search on BCMT for similar people, so that you can form a small group on your own and then hire a trekking company, instead of joining a group.

    Hey Just returned from Leh Ladakh went for Chadar trek with Renok Adventures though the Chadar trek was cancelled because of landslide at tributary of Zanskar river and we went for alternate trek a mix of Chadar and high altitude pass trekking. Trekking in Ladakh is always a special appeal to it and during winters it was great fun and thanks to Renok team for making it to happen.
