Bon is believed to be the oldest tradition of Tibet .There are five spiritual traditions of Tibet and BON is one of them. Many of us believe that it is all same but it is not , which was explained to me by a monk at the Monastery.

The entire place looks like a piece of Tibet and is the world’s 2nd largest BON Monastery. There are only three Bon Monasteries in India… i.e. in Solan , Dehradun and Sikkim.

I met a very friendly monk there who gave me insight about the religious traditions, history and a lot; also they offered us lunch which made my day.

The colors and beautiful landscapes will just lift your day.
