When we visited the monastery, we were luckily the only tourists at that time. The monastery, not as big as others, in Darjeeling and Sikkim, but has a very calm atmosphere. Lovely views of the valleys below from here.

This is an impressive monastary set amidst spectacular hills. However, for me, the small annex where you can light candles (made on the premises) was the icing on the cake.
