The hermitage of Tirdum (4,350m) is just 3 km northwest of Drigung Til, an 8 km road leads up the side valley to Tidrum Nunnery. Tidrum, with its medicinal hot springs, has a great location in a narrow gorge at the confluence of two streams. The entire valley is festooned with prayer flags. The nunnery’s main assembly hall is worth a visit. A cabinet holds a selection of self-arising rock images found in the hot springs.
The hot springs are popular with convalescing Tibetans, who soak in the mineral-rich waters to cure everything from rheumatism to paralysis. The pool for men & women are separated by Wooden canopies, which encircle the delightful hot springs.
