Yungdrungling Monastery is 170km west of Lhasa on the north bank of the Yarlung Tsangpo(Brahmaputra River), just east of where the Nangung-chu meets. Just visible across the river from the road between Lhasa and Shigatse is Yungdrungling Monastery. Once it was the second most influential Bon Monastic institution in Tibet and home to 700 monks. The number is now reduced to abt 35 and consists largely of different factions of Bonpos from the Aba region of northern Sichuan.

For many people, the Yungdrungling monastery is a typical Buddhist monastery. However, one should pay special attention to the swastikas swirling anticlockwise and the reluctance of your guide and driver to enter the grounds. The monks here are very friendly to visitors. Some of them can even speak English. If you are lucky to meet the key holder, he can show you the large dukhang. Inside the house are the impressive thrones of the monastery's two resident Shiromo along the walls-look for the deity's characteristic swastika mace. There are also a couple of more behind the main hall that you can pay a visit to. Those chapels' include the Namjya Lhakhang. Keep in mind that you should visit those chapels in an anticlockwise direction.
