To be ready for the start of morning prayers, some visitors stay in the plain monastery guesthouse or the more comfortable monastery-owned Chamba Hotel at the base of the gompa hill. There are also several homestays in the village.

For longer, more meditative stays, try the small, charming guesthouse of the Nyerma Nunnery, 2km southeast of Thiksey and 1.2km north of the main road.
