Phugtal Monastery or Phugtal Gompa (often trasliterated as Phuktal) is a monastery in south-eastern Zanskar, Ladakh in northern India.
Founded by Gangsem Sherap Sampo in the early 12th century, the monastery is a unique construction built into the cliffside like a honeycomb. It located on the mouth of a cave on the cliff face of a lateral gorge of a major tributary of the Lungnak (Lingti-Tsarap) River.

Home to about 70 monks the monastery has a library and prayer rooms. A stone tablet reminds of Alexander Csoma de Kőrös author of the first English-Tibetan dictionary who explored Ladakh and visited in 1826-27.
@James Jestes It's in Zanskar, India
So what happens when there are heavy rains and that waterfall starts to run really hard? Cause those buildings look pretty close to the edge of the falls! Just wondering.....
I never knew it exist. I will search in google earth.
Beautiful place!!!! Maybe it's a little wet???? :)
wish to visit there
Oh my! Very interesting
WOW - breathtaking!
That is so cool.
This truly is an amazing place, but that photo is completely photoshopped. They digitally removed one of the main buildings in the mouth of the "honeycomb", and added the torrential water. There is water flow there, but fairly light. I wish people would fess up to photoshopping!
