To the northwest direction of Drigung Til Monastery, there is a valley. Walk from the valley for about three hours, and then go up from the side valley for 13km, there is the Tidrum Nunnery. There are many prayer flags in the entire valley. Yeshe Tsogyal, the wife of the Tibetan King Trisong Detsen and consort of Guru Rinpoche, had strong connection with this small nunnery. Kandro-la, the resident spiritual leader of the nunnery is regared as the reincarnation of Yeshe Tsogyel.
Tidrum Nunnery is famous for its medicinal hot springs which is called Tedrum Hotspring. It has a great location in a narrow gorge at the confluence of two streams. Wooden canopies encircle the delightful hot springs. Men and women can enjoy the hotspring in separate pools. The two pools are just seperated by a wall. The temperature is about 35 Centigrade and the water is quite clean. At weekends, there are always many Tibetan people from different towns and villages closeby to enjoy the spring. It is suggested to come in working days time for tourists and do not forget personal cleaning staff.
The Kiri Yangdzong trail is a good hiking trail. You can follow the track and ascend to about 5180m to visit the caves. Then, you can descend more to a scree slope to Dranang Monastery where the valley divides. A local tour guide from the nunnery is recommended because it is hard to find the trail. If you are only interested in a short walk, you can go from the north. After half hour's climbing up the gorge behind the nunnery, you will get there.
