Padamchen is a small village, part of the Old Silk Route, which connects India and Tibet. The place is located about 10 km before Dzuluk (pronounced Zuluk). Our lodge here is a 9 room large accommodation which can accommodate as many as 50 tourists at a time.

The Property

Humro Home Mandala at Phadamchen is located just 100 meters above the forest check-post. It is a two-storeyed building built along the slope. The entrance to the main levels is just below the parking area. The first level has 5 rooms with an open dining space which overlooks a balcony. The second level has 4 rooms with a common large balcony as well. The structure is made of brick and mortar.
There is another level below the first one which houses the orphanage children. The entrance to that is separate. Guests can interact with the children if they wish.

Our homestay is located at an altitude of 8000 ft. Since other places on the SIlk route, like Zuluk, Gnathang, Kupup, etc are located at higher altitudes (12,000 ft and above) where it is difficult to get amenities like geyser, etc, and there is likely to be water problems, Padamchen is a better base for tourists since these amenities are available here.

Since Rongli town has the closest medical facilities, it is also safer to stay at Padamchen, especially for senior tourists.
