Interesting visit to the monastery in the mountains. Observed a prayer ceremony but it got too cold for comfort after a while so I had to quietly take my leave. Interesting architecture and design. Worth a visit!

Great Monastery! It was Worth the visit there. Ive been with Rimpoche there. Great experience see the monks praying there.

Around 3PM the monks meet and visitors are welcome to sit in - shoes off (wear socks - its cold!), absolute silence. The chanting is mesmerizing and relaxing. Great time to take a nice break after trekking. No photos inside are allowed.
