Difficult to reach but the location is beautiful. Suggestion: don't attempt to take the car uptil the monastery, though we did attempt at it and I would say our driver was an expert.

The intricately designed roof and walls of the monastery are a treat to the eyes, especially for someone who likes Tibetan/Buddhist culture.

It’s a beautiful monastery
But you have to walk down to reach here .
Not recommended for elderly people because coming back far from down is very steep .
Rest on the way to monastery and temple you can see village , apple orchards and cheerful people .

You have to walk down a long from the main road. The monastery is opened by His Excellency Dalai Lama. It is situated just beside a temple.

Both my wife and myself visited this monastery. This monastery is attractive and situated at the top of the hill. People have to walk a lot upwards to reach there. People in monastery offer 'prasad' (apple, almond, etc. even biscuit) to tourist.
The famous Sangla Buddhist Monastery is located near Reckong Peo in Brelengi Thus, and is also known as Brelengi Gompa, in Sangla. The monastery was founded in 1992 by the Mahabodhi Society to assist the Dalai Lama to perform the Kalachakra ceremony. It is one of the best and most popular places nearby Sangla, where large number of tourists visit everyday. The monastery displays modern Buddhist edifice and near to the monastery is a 10 meter high statue of standing Buddha, which looks majestic.
The Sangla valley has a strong influence of Buddhism and so, the monasteries here attract a lot of tourists who come here to enjoy the astounding beauty of the place as well as to see the monastery. The wooden walls and the roof of this amazing monastery are intricately designed to give a great experience to the visitors who adore the Tibetan culture selflessly.

Reaching the Buddhist Monastery is easy as there are regular buses that connect Sangla to major cities like Shimla and Delhi.
