Dechen Chholing Goemba

Dechen Chholing Goemba is the heart of this hardy community's spiritual life. The monastery hosts a lively festival, the Shingkhar Rabney, during the ninth lunar month, which usually falls in October. One of the festival's highlights is a unique yak dance, performed in honor of the animals that the Shingkhapas once herded across this beautiful landscape.
