This is Chemrey Gompa or monastery and not Tak Thok...Takthok is hewn on the rock, but is not far from Chemrey (10-11 Km). The roofs and walls of the monastery are made up of rock only and that is why it (Thak Thok) got this name.

Dramatic and very impressive mountains with monastry. Absolutely nice view!
The contrasts, colours and sharpness are superb too.
