Labrang Monastery (Labuleng Si), Xiahe County
(4.3/5 based on 150+ reviews on the web)
Watch Buddhist monks in their fuchsia robes turn squeaky prayer wheels at Labrang Monastery (Labuleng Si), the biggest Tibetan lamasery outside of Tibet. Apart from chapels, golden-roofed temples, and halls illuminated by yak-butter lamps, the 18th-century monastery houses a library and a printing house, as well as six monastic colleges. See lifelike Buddha statues made from precious metals, ivory, jade, sandalwood, crystal, and simple clay. Note that the only way to visit the interior of temples and colleges is to join a guided tour. Work out when and for how long to visit Labrang Monastery (Labuleng Si) and other Xiahe County attractions using our handy Xiahe County tour planner.

  • 甘南拉卜楞寺。 转载网友柯宏胜相册。 “游览甘南桑科草原与拉卜楞寺已经是去年的事了。我去过不少草原,但是,甘南藏族自治州的桑科草原给我的感觉还是颇为震撼的。这里有丰美的水草,鲜艳的色彩,豪放的气概,来过这里,自然是终身难忘!”
  • Nice for its size, but very Tatty. Much more interesting than the town and the mountains around.
