The monastery looks like it has been built in a wall and has around 5 storeys on top of the other. The monastery also has a nunnery attached with it, which is quite unique as many monasteries in Ladakh do not feature this kind of religious harmony. After exploring the monastery and its temple we will visit the kitchen and share a cup of tea and barley bread with the resident monks. Later we head back to Yangthang.

The village is surrounded by rice fields, white sparkling water brooks and mature cedar trees, giving the village its name of Shukpachan (Shukpa means cedar). Camp at the village.

After we descend from the pass, we will reach the fertile village of Ang from where the trail goes over the bridge and turns into a regular path till it reaches the spread out village of Temisgam. After we explore the village and its monastery, we will board the jeeps that would take us back to Leh.
