Very nice monastery with a stunning backdrop. The location is awesome. This is a huge monastery with lots of steps. But the climb is worth it. You can spend 2-3 hours easily in this place.

You can actually stay inside the Thiksay Monastery. I don't know about the process which needs to follow but Thiksay monastery is amongst those monasteries which allow visitors to stay for a limited time.
