Lonely Planet review

Sakya-Buddhist Matho Gompa is perched on a colourfully stratified ridge above Matho village. Most of the early-15th-century monastery has been replaced by more modern structures in recent years, but it’s still worth the trip for the stupendous valley views. During the monastery’s famous Matho Nagrang festival , blindfolded monk-oracles perform acrobatics, engage in ritual acts of self-mutilation and make predictions for the coming year.
