Lingtam or Lingtum is the first village with a check post after Rongli on this route. It is a very peaceful small village with a sparkling weather guarded by a small river called Bakhuter Khola. Located at an altitude of around 5000 feet above sea level, Lingtum has two monasteries and is surrounded by hills on all sides.
Lingtums’s sunshine and pleasant weather throughout the year makes it one of the favourite spots to stop and have a peek in the monasteries and have a cup of tea on your journey to the chilling high-altitude destinations of Silk Route. Lingtum has two monasteries – the old monastery has some nice murals on this walls whereas the new monastery is more spacious and has a glamorous meditation hall.Check nearest accommodation to Lingtam
