Phugtala Monastery is a Buddhist monastery located in the remote Lungank Valley of southeastern Zanskar in the autonomous Himalayan region of Ladakh, northern India.

Fukult attributes his legacy to the powerful and knowledgeable scholars and teachers inhabiting the Gompa cave around which the monastery is built, and for a long time, a place for yoga, meditation, learning, and teaching. This is reflected in its name Fukult, which is derived from Phukthal, which is derived from the 'cave' of Phuket meaning, and 'leisurely to Taal or Thal' in the endangered Zangaskari dialect of the Tabic languages. An alternate spelling of Fuktal is Fukthar, where Thar means 'Mukti'. Therefore, the name Phuktal means 'cave of leisure' or 'cave of liberation'.

The present Fukult Gompa, of the Gelug School of Tibetan Buddhism, was founded in the early 15th century by Jangsum Sherp Jangpo, a disciple of Tsongkhapa. Tsongkhapa was the founder of Gelug, one of the newest schools of Tibetan Buddhism.
