Hidden in a side valley high above Trashi Yangtse town is this delightful and little-known pilgrimage site. The current chapel dates from the 18th century and is built around the kurjey (body print) of Guru Rinpoche. Pilgrims lift one of two stones in front of the print to increase their chances of getting a boy or girl. With its towering cypress trees, many sacred stones and carved mantras, the site has a dreamy, timeless feel.
The easiest way to get here is along the bumpy, rutted 12km feeder road to the school at Womenang (also called Do Nakpo), from where it's an easy 45-minute hike via Solamang village. Hiking trails continue via Bumdir and Birting villages to either Dongzom village (3½ hours) or the Rigsum Goenpo Lhakhang via Pelri Goemba (four hours).
