The remote monasteries and village tea houses of Phu

A rock-hopping, glacier-skirting, mountain-hugging adventure through untouched wilderness to get here, the village of Phu has a true lost world feel to it. A couple of days walk from Tibet, this is a unique place with mountains barely climbed and villages virtually untouched – off-the-beaten-track doesn’t even come close to describing it. The real treat is stopping here and soaking up the culture: visit some of the world’s most remote monasteries, sup tea with the locals in the village tea house, take a stroll around the little huddle of houses. These serene, meditative pleasures make sense here, where the gentle friendliness of village-life is a soothing counterpoint to the tough world all around.
