Create an itinerary including Pemayangtse Gompa
The impeccable temple of Pemayangtse Gompa (literally translated as "Perfect Sublime Lotus") boasts exquisite decorations and painted statues. Built in 1705 on the popular Dzongri pilgrimage route, the monastery follows the Nyingma Order of Tibetan Buddhism and still retains its traditions. Enter the main prayer hall to find a significant Buddha statue, then climb upstairs for the multi-headed, many-armed statue depicting eight incarnations of Lord Ganesha, a Hindu god. The top floor features a patiently handcrafted, seven-tiered wooden structure portraying Guru Rimpoche’s Heavenly Palace (Sanghthokpalri/ Zandog-palri). With an elevation of 2085 m (6840 ft), the temple provides great views of the surrounding hilly landscape.

  • the location of the Gompa is outstanding. We visited it later during the day at 4pm and listened to the monks doing their prayers at the main hall. It was calm / serene and very peaceful...
