Day at Sandyang
Begin your day with a walk to the nearby Monastery before visiting Richenpong Monastery for morning prayers. After lunch, visit the nearby village of Karthuk during a 3-4 hour walk through villages, farms and markets.
This morning if the weather is clear, your guide will wake you at dawn for a half an hour walk up to the three hundred year old monastery (owned by the family) at an altitude of 1800 meters. You will be rewarded for your efforts with an enchanting view over Pemayangste Hill and to the great Himalayan range. The sight of the sun rising through the fluttering prayer flags with Kanchenjunga in the background is truly unforgettable.
You will then be taken down to Rinchenpong Monastery where you will able to participate in the early morning prayers. After prayers you will walk back to Sandyang Lee for breakfast.
After breakfast, spend your time relaxing in the house or reading in the garden on the high plateau behind the house or appreciating the small in-house flower nursery. After an early lunch, your guide will present you with an option of walking down to another nearby village of Karthuk- the village boasts of a rich cultivation of several fruits, maize and spices. This gradual walk of around 3-4 hours will give you a glimpse of the local lifestyle practiced here with an interesting rendezvous with the typical mountain village market in Rinchenpong. The walk can be shortened based on your requirement. You will return to the house for an in-house dinner.
