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.

  • 拉卜楞寺的转经长廊全长7里,环绕整个寺庙,全程喜欢下来大概需要1.5-2个小时,有体力的,高反不严重的可以跟着当地人一起。能够起早的话6:30开始在主殿里有早课,值得一去,和内地佛寺的感觉完全不同,非常庄严肃穆,脱掉鞋袜,盘坐在走道听早课,虽然听不懂,但真的能让人静下心来,而且当时由于怕触犯禁忌特别问了一大早就来转经的藏民,虽然语言不通,但是了解到我们是想听早课,非常热情的教我们,还指着寺院告诉我...  more »
  • 拉卜楞寺是藏族聖地,建築和文化深度相當豐富。但要注意的是藏族有許多禁忌,因此必須遵從導覽員的指令,當時我們去的時候就有人被導覽員罵 
  • 4月底到的夏河,幸亏带了厚衣服,刚出机场就漫天飞雪,眼睛望去白茫茫一片。夏河还属于冬天,但是天放晴了,蓝天白云很让人神清气爽,在拉卜愣寺转了两个小时的转经筒,想着每个地方不一样的人每天都从事这不一样的事情,有的人喜欢亮晶晶热闹的生活,有的人却每天对着自己心中的信仰一步步的朝拜,这世间没有对错,只是个人追求不一样罢了。

  • 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.
