hotsprings are about a half hour drive from
Drigung Til Monastery.
The Tidrum Nunnery and hotsprings is just northwest of the
monastery. It has fantastic hot springs in a narrow gorge
at the confluence of two streams. This small nunnery is
related to Yeshe
Tsogyel, the wife of King Trisong Detsen. The Kandro-la,
the resident spiritual leader of Tidrum nunnery, is
considered a reincarnation of Yeshe Tsogyel.
Concrete free, these hot
springs are truly curative and relaxing. Men and women
have separate bathrooms for changing. The best part is the
fee. If things haven't changed when you go, it's only 5RMB
per person to enjoy the hot springs and the nunnery is
free. Some nunneries will offer free accommodations in
certain circumstances. Whatever you do, don't get rushed
by your driver or guide. This is a place to relax, forget
about your watch and soak up the healing waters.
