Most Tibetan pilgrims make a clockwise kora (ritual circuit) around the outside of the Tsuglagkhang Complex. To join them, take the downhill road to the left at the complex's entrance then follow the prayer-flag-draped path off to the right after 150m.

About half way round the 1.5km circuit you pass a collection of chortens, prayer wheels and photos of more than 100 Tibetans who have self-immolated since 2009 in protest at Chinese rule.
