Lhagang in the Tung chu valley. The pastures to the north of the town are often the venue for horse festivals in the summer months. and is surrounded in the north east with snow peaking mountains.Lhagang is surrounded by five holy mountains : Chenresig, Jambayang, Chana Dorje and Drolma, and to the north, the snow mountain called Zhara.

Because it is surrounded by these holy mountains, it is a special and blessed place.
