Matho Gompa is a Sakya-Buddhist monastery 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 Most of the early-15th-century monastery has been replaced by more modern structures in recent years, but it’s worth the trip for the stupendous valley views.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.
