Choedrak Monastery is a Buddhist Monastery in Bhutan, located not far from Tharpaling Monastery.

Located at an altitude of 3,800 metres, Guru Rinpoche is said to have meditated at this spot. Given the auspicious nature of the location, in 1234, Lorepa, a Drukpa Kagyupa Lama from Tibet build a temple here and resided in it. However, after he returned to Tibet, the temple was said to have been besieged by Evil Spirits and it was not until the 18th century that anybody considered approaching it. It was repaired by Ngawang Trinley, an eminent Monk from Siula Monastery in the Punakha region.
