Reting Monastery was founded by Atisha's chief disciple Dromtönpa in 1057 in the Reting Tsampo Valley north of Lhasa as the seat of the Kadampa lineage. He brought some of Atisha's relics with him.It was the origination of every Buddhism sect of Tibet. The monastery covers an area of 1667.5 square meters comprising by Coqen Hall and Reting Lazang mainly. Coqen Hall was distributed into assembly halls, chanting halls, enshrine and worship hall. Its architecture leads latter Buddhism buildings.In a country full of spectacular natural beauty, Reting was a pastoral heaven. At 13,350 ft, the monastery overlooks this perfectly smooth green and placid valley, a milky snow-fed river running through the bottom. Above the monastery is a sun-dappled juniper forest, resting in mountain meadows thick with spongy grass and bright scattered clusters of yellow and purple flowers. 

The monastery has a long and detailed history. It was responsible for the Reting Rinpoche, an abbot of the school, which led the search to find the 14th Dalai Lama. The search team was successful in locating the reincarnate and bringing him to his rightful position. From that point the Reting Rinpoche were candidates for Regent, a high title, during times of minority of a Dalia Lama. The path to Reting used to be only accessible on foot or horseback. A road from the Lhasa highway to Lhunzhub County is now available. The monastery holds a special ceremony, called the Pobentangoor Festival which sees thousands and thousands of believers.
