    The Seralung (Hailstone Valley) monastery was rebuilt in 1984 by the Drigung Kagyu monastery.  It is located on the right side of a small valley near a spring.  The original monastery, further up the valley to the east, was home to close to one hundred monks before it was destroyed during the Cultural Revolution.  The main images of the Seralung monastery are Guru Rinpoche and Sakyamuni.  Seralung, along with the Selung and Gyandruk monasteries near Mt. Kailash, is a branch of the Drigungtil Monastery east of Lhasa.
