This was probably my favorite monastery in all of Tibet. The architecture is lovely, and we were fortunate to arrive in time to see the monks praying. Perhaps best of all, it was a lively, working monastery with Tibetan families, many of whom were very friendly and eager to interact with Westerners. Definitely a superior, off the beaten path attraction. Tip: this monastery, combined with a trip to the nearby Dridrum Nunnery and a stay at Shambala Source, was the best day of our entire visit.

I keep thinking I’ve seen the most beautiful Tibetan monastery and then I see another, perhaps more beautiful. Under construction, which they all seem to be, but great to walk around. Only other visitors were Tibetan pilgrims. You can’t go to the nearby sky burial site (no longer ever permitted for tourists), but the birds are in evidence. Lunch in the all vegetarian refectory was pretty good.

First established in 1167 and was damaged in the Cultural Revolution.It sits on a very steep ridge overlooking the valley ,the view is spectacular.There were originally 180,000 monks, but now only 200 live in the monastery.
