This little town functions as the transit hub of this sparsely populated part of India, home to the legendary Diksit Gompa. Drop by the mysterious Diskit Monastery, which was built between the 14th–17th centuries. Perched atop the old town of Diksit, at first sight this ancient Gompa seems to be precariously balanced right at the edge of a sheer rock face. Built in the classic Tibetan style, it is definitely worth a visit. Among its many cultural and artistic appeals is a mysterious, six-armed statue. It stands within the Gonkhang (chamber of the guardian deity) and has an interesting story for you to uncover!
