The nuns, "anis", at Ghar Gompa are a wonderful, well trained group of women, fully accomplished in all aspects of Himalayan Vajrayana Buddhist practice. The nunnery is about 20 minutes down from them in temples and well worth a visit.
One of the oldest gompas in the region - older than the oldest gompa of Tibet. You can hike to this place easily via Tsarang. This avoids the 4200m high saddle. Usually, trekkers are taking the Dakmar route.
