Rizong gompa is located on the left bank of the Indu river, about 75 kilometres west of Leh. To get there take the right turn after Uletopko. This gompa was built in the 19th century by Tsulrim Nyima, a monk from nearby Saspol. There's a chorten with his ashes somewhere in the monastery. About 50 Gelugpa monks live in the complex, and they are very frendly - if you can, ask them to see their kitchen: it's truly spectacular - a jump back in time.
