Another attraction of the place is the 11th century Shey Gonpa, which lies at the base of Crystal Mountain. This Gonpa is an esteemed pilgrimage of the Buddhist .Every year hundreds of pilgrims come and make a circuit of the crystal peak. Beauty of the place is heavenly but because of harsh living conditions population density is low and not many trekkers trek to these areas.
