The magnificent Gompa of Chemrey is nestled in the conical hills, which is hard to reach without personal vehicles. This is the reason it draws not too many visitors every year. The Gompa of Chemrey is situated in the valley that passes from Karu to Chang la pass.

This monastery was founded in 1664 in the memory of King Sengge Namgyal. It is inhabited by very few Drugpa monks and trainees. The monastery has a fabulous assortment of Tibetan textbooks whose title pages are lit up with calligraphy by precious metals like silver and gold. A huge flight of step made of wood, leads you upstairs where a gigantic Padmasambhava,brass statue, founder of Nyingmapa School, sits. The statue is wrapped in silk brocade and it is covered by semi precious stones.

The murals of this manstery are highly attractive and it bears the artistic finery of the artist who belongs to a Nimmu village.
