The traditional seat of the Karmapa Black Hat lineage, Tsurphu Monastery was founded in 1159. The monastery was built in the middle of a valley with high mountains surrounding the complex. Above the monastery are traces of rock paintings and some meditation retreats. A kora (circumambulation) trail takes visitors on a beautiful 2-3 hour trek that overlooks the Tsurphu valley.
