Phuktal Monastery Guesthouse

Guesthouse in South of Padum

Set on a raised ledge amid wild rosebushes and stupas, Phuktal Monastery Guesthouse has four double rooms with real beds and en-suite (if malfunctioning) bathrooms.

However, Phuktal's growing popularity means that it is often full during the summer trekking season. On such occasions you might need to head to Purney, around 90 minutes' walk down the opposite bank of the river.
