Great modifier. D looks like the trap answer until we notice that the verb tense is wrong.

many hundreds is redundant.

dotted with many hundreds of monasteries

conveys the same meaning as:
dotted with hundreds of monasteries

I have heard "several hundreds" but not "many hundreds"

I am tempted to pick D.

Is it clear the "they" in E is modifying the regions or the monasteries

E is better than D because "which" is D is a bit confusing. Using "them" in E is much better because it clearly refers to monasteries.
