Gyangong Ani Gompa

Buddhist Monastery in Tawang Valley

This friendly nunnery, with about 50 Buddhist nuns, was founded by Merag Lama (founder of the main Tawang Gompa) for his sister. It's connected to Tawang Gompa by a cable car. The cable car was closed on our last visit, but the walk to the gompa is pleasant anyway. A 1.5km path starts up stone steps 200m past Sonam Tsomu Homestay on the ridge road north of Tawang Gompa.
