Built in 7th century during the reign of ancient Tibet King Songtsen Gampo, Trandruk Monastery is about two kilometers away from Nedong County. It is a great place to visit for the special architecture (the famous cupreous bell and the grand Pearl Thangka), the unique Tibet religion culture, as well as the spectacular natural scenery (blue sky and verdant trees) that surrounds the monastery.
