The first spot was ALCHI MONASTERY which is a Buddhist Monastery. It took us around 1.5 hours to reach here and the journey wasn't so smooth. I felt nauseous almost throughout the ride and even threw up. Make sure to keep avomin or something similar handy.TIP: Since this is a religious place, make sure to dress appropriately and do not wear any short clothes. (Jeans and long dresses are fine).We spent good 2 hours here exploring the monastery, the local market and clicking pictures. The local shops had Apricot beer available (locally made). Although we didn't buy any but I would suggest you try it.
