Another stretch of trek through the middle of the Gorge and our sincere companion, the Zanskar River flows along. After crossing the Bridge on Zanskar River, we reach to another very beautiful village of Zanskar ‘Ichar’. Village is located on the Right Bank of Zanskar River. This village houses a small but beautiful Monastery and has a school as well, one of the schools in Zanskar. Spend bit of time, meeting the local people from this beautiful village and visiting the Monastery. Continue to head towards Raru.
You may also spot some of the wild inhabitants of the area like herds of Ibex, if you are lucky enough. Cross another Bridge to reach Raru, a moderatly populated Village in Zanskar, now well connected with road to Padum. The lush green fields cultivated by water from the glacier streams flowing down the mountains along a small lake makes a perfect camping.
