Fiang is a village comprising 300 odd houses, located at a distance of 15 km from Leh. The village is not only home to a 16th century Phyang Monastery but also boasts the presence of the Himalayan Institute of Alternate Ladakh (HIAL), an initiative run by the renowned innovator and Educationist, Sonam Wangchuk. With the help of the local community, he also established one of the first Ice-Stupas in Fiang village which is an attempt to conserve the unutilized winter stream water for summer’s irrigation purposes. The Tokpo stream cuts across the village originating from the high mountains and glaciers overlooking the village. These mountains overseeing the Fiang village are also part of traditional trekking routes and some of then even lead up to the beautiful Nubra Valley on the other side of the mountains.
