The monastery is a 118-kilometre long excursion from Gangtok but worth all the travelling time. Inside, take note of the murals depicting stories of Lamaism and Dungzin Rimpoche's seven-tier wooden masterpiece - a smaller remake of Santopalri, the celestial palace of Rinpoche. It took Dungzin five years to carve out this masterpiece.
