We had a conversation with the people in monastery Yes we are lucky a monk came to us and told its very hard to get a taxi it's expensive here come I vl take u to some places around and vl put you in one of my friends place and we where happy the monk took us to some beautiful villages had a good drive with him. Experience with a monk guiding was really a good time. We went to
    KIBBER - Declared as sanctuary

    CHICHAM - Asia's highest bridge

     KEE - biggest monastery and relegious training centre

We visited these two villages and he took to a beautiful home stay and we ended up in a caffee where we had out best dinner for our life time it was really cold in kibber and the shocking moment for us was when we offered the monk money he refused it and we where shocked to see a person  who refuses to take money. And we compromised him to take atleast for fuel and he took 800 where if we would have taken a taxi it would have costed us a bomb. Yes we where lucky. Night we had a good time with the Buddhist who owns  the home stay it was a good time with him and we ended our day there
