Visit Enchey Monastery, a peaceful Buddhist monastery built on the spot where legendary flying Lama Drupthob Karpo built his hermitage. Believed to hold the protective spirits of deities Khangchendzonga and Yabdean, the monastery holds deep religious significance in the area. Admire the richly decorated prayer hall and exterior structure, and listen to the colorful prayer flags fluttering in the wind.

  • I saw small lamas playing football. Best experience ever.
  • This monastery comes in top 5 of its historical values and respect. Also don't forget to do ritual named KAANGSO it can't help to fulfill stupid human needs but can really purify body soul and mind.
