It is downhill from the mall. Next to the CCD, a road goes down towards the Bhutia Busty. You will not see any direction board or signage. Take the road and walk down for 10 mins or more you will see the monastery on the left hand side of the hill. Being on an off beat road, crowd will not... More

I had some difficulty making my way to Bhutia Busty Gompa, directed by villagers through steep short-cuts, followed by troops of monkeys.

Very old Gompa(monastery). The monastery is not too big,but adding up in your sightseeing spots would be a good choice.
