So if you have any problems you don't have to knock several doors to get your issue resolved the leaders will be right besides you all the time. You will be introduced to the trek leader immediately after you book, and since then he will be right there to assist you with all your concerns. If you are based in Mumbai, you will be invited to meetup's before Chadar Trek to have personal interaction and help preparing for the trek which included shopping for the trek and all other preparation.

Detailed itinerary for Chadar Trek

Pre-Trek Meetup:

We will be planning a meetup (mid Dec) for all the participants in Mumbai to get introduced to us and to rest of the participants with whom you are going to trek. We will also go for group shopping together after meetup so that we get the right stuff at right price. Our Trek Leader will guide you in preparing for the trek.

Initial meetup :

On reaching Leh airport you need to meet Mischief Treks team a specified hotel which is approx 10 min away from the airport . You may choose to reach earlier for sightseeing and shopping the additional stay will be charged extra. Accommodation in Leh will be arranged by us for one day prior to trek and one day after the trek. Next day you will be taken via bus to trek starting point and the trek will commence as mentioned in itinerary. After Trek completion you will be dropped back to the hotel and next day you may choose to move back to your respective city.

Your body needs to acclimatize before you start trekking, hence you need to reach Leh 3 days before the trek start and give yourself time to adjust to the weather. During these three days we visit monasteries, temples, Khardung La, Hall of Fame, and other tourist locations in and around Leh. These visits are optional and are done at your own expense. As a big group it’s very cost effective to move around together. For example you are joining 08th Jan batch, you need to reach Leh on 5th Jan. Your 'Day 01' for trek will be 5th Jan.

Similarly, if the participant faces an emergency situation, the organizing team will not have to suffer financial loss. The cancellation policy is designed with a completely unbiased approach towards the participant and organizing team and is aimed at fairness towards both.
