Getting There & Away

The valley essentially starts at the crossroad ruins of Ngari Dratsang monastery 40km east of Samye. From here roads lead east to Densatil Monastery (21km), south to Tsetang (8km) and north to Keru Lhakhang (11km). As you head north up the valley you pass the turn-off to Tashi Doka Monastery after 6km. Further north the valley swings to the left, eventually arriving at the Önphu Taktsang, a Guru Rinpoche cave high on the hillside. There is no road here; the best way to visit is on the five-day trek from Tashigang on the Lhasa–Rutok road.
