The 90 minute drive from Lhasa was incredible traveling along dry river beds and up switchback roads to the +/- 12,000foot high mountain monastery. It was amazing to see how the monks of today live in this remote/isolated environment that includes prayer/meeting halls, dormitories, throne rooms, chapels, shrines and classrooms. The separate, cliff -hugging meditation cave where monks would spend 3 years, 3 months and 3 days in complete solitude was humbling.
