We climbed the steps amidst... More

A small yet nice Monastery - it take just 10 mins to reach this place from Rinchenpong by a car/jeep. You can stay in this area - there is a small guest house.

I visited Tashiding Monastery when I did Goechala Trek with Renok Adventures last year. Visiting any monastery is unique experience in itself but visit it when I went on a trek for Goechala with Renok Adventures it was great. I like the Rohan's personal attention to every trek detail...they are best trek organizer for goechala trek.
