Kyagar (also know as Tigger) is a major village along the Nubra River side of the valley situated halfway along the road north to Panamik which has been famous for centuries for its hot springs and as a stop along the ancient trade route to China as there were no villages for the rest of the journey for 12 days.

Above the village is the 19th century Samsanling Gompa, a large complex with seven temples. A monk is usually available to open the prayer rooms, which house an impressive collection of thankas and excellently restored frescoes.
