What appears to be a funerary structure is situated in a side valley called Chötenbuk NakhaMchod rten sbug sna kha, a tributary of the KyéSkyes valley, which in turn, joins the RawangRa bang valley. This structure (4.5 m by 4.5 m) is situated about 20 m above the valley floor, on a northeast facing slope (33° 03.139΄ N. lat. / 80° 19.251΄ / 4420 m). It is highly degraded and no coherent wall segments remain. In the middle there is a depression, which may be a sign that it was excavated at one time. In the valley floor below this structure there are the faint traces of what may be another small funerary structure. Higher up on valley bottom there may yet be another small specimen (03.384΄ / 19.509΄).
