250-year old Monastery

 

 

This is very authentic and has not changed much. The ruins of the old monastery are higher up on the mountain. That original one was built in 1200 AD. A cave there was used by the lama who originally introduced Budhism into Tibet. In other words, it was a long time ago. People still come here to do pujas up as the old cave, and likely to meditate there, as well. There were yaks roaming up there. Also, Himalayan bear, which can be dangerous and have attacked people in other areas recently.
