DON'T MISS THIS!
As you exit Palkor Chode complex, veer left and pass all the vendors, and take the next right, in the direction of the hill with the fort. It is a long straight residential street, lined with traditional 2-story white-washed houses. Cows are tethered to front doors chewing cud, dogs sleep in the sun, dung patties dry on the walls, hay dries in piles, roosters assert their authority, weaving of the traditional women's aprons, etc. Just so authentic, it was a real pleasure.
We were even invited into the home of a curious local - but I think we ended up being more curious than her! A very insightful visit to their home, where 4 generations live, and some real butter tea!!
It's an easy stroll, so don't be put off if you are rather tired after Palkor Chode. You will need at least an hour (well, I did!)
