Lhlung Monastery Overview

Lhlung Monastery, located on the highest point in the Himalayas, is a symbol of spirituality and calm. Set away in the untamed scenery of the Spiti Valley, this historic monastery embodies perseverance and loyalty. The Lhlung monastery is a haven for pilgrims and seekers with its opulent architecture and serene halls. Encircled by sloping valleys and snow-capped peaks, it begs guests to pause, think, and commune with the age-old teachings of Tibetan Buddhism. It is a location where souls find solace and wings to soar in the mountain breeze, with a rich history and a profound feeling of respect.

A small temple complex in the Lhlung village, this monastery was once home to a number of nuns and monks, but now sits abandoned except occasional travelers and curious cats. But that is all the more reason to explore all the hidden mysteries nestled in the complex, including but not limited to the black stone statues, the century-old willow tree, and Buddhist idols. If you're seeking to unravel the secrets of Lhlung Monastery and delve into its intriguing history, consider including it in your Spiti tourism Packages for an unforgettable journey through the heart of the Himalayas.
