You are welcome in the newly built guesthouse, "the Homestay Taras", near the new convent for elderly nuns in Nyerma, not far from the famous monastery in Thiksey.
The place is breathtakingly beautiful, overlooking the snow peaks of the Himalayas. Enjoy the tranquility of this place, where ten centuries ago, the first monastery of Ladakh was built. The ruins of the ancient stupas stand all around the monastery.
It is an ideal guesthouse for people who want to relax, to meditate and occasionally like to experience the life of the nuns.
