Another hour from here brings you to the pretty village of Dibling where there are some 14 houses and a gompa. The monastery, as with virtually all Ladakhi villages, sits above the village and it is well worth the walk up to have a look around. It is a Yellow Hat temple, whose main figures are Shakyamuni Buddha, Chenrizig, Maitreya (Buddha of the future), and Zongkhapa (founder of the Gelukpa Yellow Hat Sect). Leaving the village, you follow a relatively newly-built footpath and after a while some parts of the path are exposed.

It is a long and hot descent, but the views go on improving of Lingshed and its wonderful monastery.
