Amidst awesome natural beauty, this monastery is a must watch attraction of Pin valley. It is located around 10 km from Attargo on Tabo-Kaza Road and 3 km from Gulling- a small village in Pin Valley. Views of snow capped peaks and Pin river from the monastery is truly unforgettable. The main hall of the monastery is very well decorated with colorful frescoes and paintings. The natural beauty of the entire route from Attargo to this monastery is spectacular. Although a bus runs daily from Kaza to Mud village in Pin Valley, it would be wise to visit this place by private vehicle. We visited this place while going to Kaza from Dhankar.

A quiet place of worship that has been renovated with Dalai Lama's help. The old temple has all the old world charm and prayers are majestic.

To reach the Kungri Monstery, you need to take a left turn after crossing Dhankar Monastery (if you come from Tabo side) and drive towards Pin Valley keeping Pin river on your left. After crossing a small village Gulling, you have to take a right turn to reach Kungri Monstery, which is worth visiting. The young monks are very enthusiatic there and accompanied us while visiting the monastrey. As mentioned there, it ws built in 1330 and has a very long history.

However, there was a section in the monastery, where women were not allowed; only men were allowed, which disappointed us a bit.
