Gongkar's main claim to fame is its airport, but there are also a couple of interesting monasteries west of the town centre and one in the town itself. Note that there are three places called Gongkar: the Lhasa Gongkar Airport (ལྷ་ས་གོང་དཀར་གནམ་གྲུ་ཐང།, 拉萨贡嘎机场, Lāsà Gònggā Jīchǎng), the Gongkar Chöde Monastery 10km to the west and the county town of Gongkar Xian (སྣེ་གདོང་རྫོང་, 贡嘎县, Gònggā Xiàn), about 10km to the east.
