Welcome to South of Padum

Ichar is one of the valley's most intriguing villages, with a looming gompa and, on slightly higher ground, a small reflective pond and a knot of very evocative old-town homes. It's invisible from the main road.

The destination for most is Cha on the north bank, from where the hiking trail to the cliff-face monastery at Phuktal starts.
