  • Amazing experience. A quiet walk of around a km to reach. Place is very quiet and peaceful. Beautifully maintained.
  • Beautiful place amidst forest. Offers excellent views of the snow peaks and Pemyangtse Monastery. Need to walk (15-20 mins) to reach the top.
  • Excellent place. You can reach there by 1km trek from pemyangtse monastery through forest.
  • This is an awesome location, a trek for kilometer & half, you will enjoy the walk through the dense forest, and once you finally reach, you will be amazed. Not much of ancient architecture to see, most of it is destroyed, but it is well maintained and very few tourist visit the place, makes it quite and enjoyable.
  • needs to be preserved can be developed though if you like old ruins and history you will like this place
