If you're passing by this is a nice little place to visit as it stretches the legs, the local story about the lamp, like nany others, is clearly nonsense but nice little valley bedecked with prayer flags.

Lovely little valley and short hike. The ride there is quite scenic. Stop by the Red Panda Brewery on the way out

If you're travelling east, fine to stop and stretch your legs but otherwise, don't make the drive if this is your end destination. Not much to see...

This is essentially a small pool of water in a gorge. If you travel to Mongar, it involves a minimal detour that is worth taking just for the sake of the legend surrounding the site.
