The village Sumda Chen can be reached over the road following the lower Zanskar river, which also leads to the smaller village of Sumda Chung. Sumda Chen lies in 62km distance from Leh and is home to nearly 90 people. Near the village two ruins of temple structures can be found that date back to the times of the Guge kingdom.
