Phuktal Monastery Guesthouse

Guesthouse in South of Padum

Set on a raised ledge amid wild rosebushes and stupas, Phuktal Monastery Guesthouse has six grubby double rooms with real beds (bring a sleeping bag) and en-suite (if malfunctioning) bathrooms. There are also a couple of overspill tents. Food is simple.

Phuktal's growing popularity means that it is often full during July and August.
