Rest day

Rest and acclimatisation in Lo Manthang

Lo Manthang – rest & acclimatisation

A rest day to explore the monasteries generally watch life go by.

Lo Manthang’s three big monasteries are storehouses of some of the most exquisite Buddhist artworks in the entire Himalayas. Many  have been painstakingly restored by a team of artists, local and international, headed by Luigi Fieni.

We will be visiting Champa (dedicated to the future Buddha Maitreya), Thukchen (only monastery in the world with 108 mandalas painted on its wall) and the traditional medicine clinic.

Lo Manthang is a fabulous, timeless place to sit and wonder at the world.
