Thereafter we will go to the Tibet Handicraft Centre and spend some time in the midst of wonderful tea gardens. Our next destination is Ghoom Monastery. The calm ambience of this place becomes more mystic with dense fog.
We will also take you to Yoga-Chiling 'Yellow Hat' temple. Here you can experience a foghorn-like sound coming from the giant Gyeling pipes blown by the Buddhist monks making the village more interesting.
