‘small monster’

Buddhist monastery

We weren’t able to visit inside because the gate was locked, but this beautiful rustic monastery is tucked deep into the hillside in a birch forest about 100 KM east of Ulaanbataar. The road was basically nonexistent — and we wove our way precariously across some surfaces which were not meant to be driven on – but our trusty driver, from Lotus Guest House, was completely competent in every detail. He spoke zero English, but when we headed toward the monastery, he said we were going to ‘small monster’ – we couldn’t figure it out until we got closer and saw it!
