Tashiding Monastery, Yuksam

4.5
According to legend, the site for Tashiding Monastery was chosen by a guru, who shot an arrow from his bow and decided that the building would be constructed on the spot where it landed. Sitting at an altitude of 1,465 m (4,806 ft), the hilltop monastery offers memorable views over the surrounding mountainous landscape. Embark on the 40-minute uphill walk to reach the monastery, where you can appreciate its humble but attractive architecture.
