    Xiahe is a small town 3 hours from Lanzhou, famous for the Labrang monastery. I have never seen a monastery like this, it's more like a gated village that has many different small temples inside. Besides the temples for prayer there are also universities; for Tibetan medicine, philosophy, and one other I can't remember, probably just Buddhism related stuff. To become a monk requires at least 20 years of study in ...

    This morning we hit the road again and the temperature has definitely cooled down. I wore a tank top and shorts but on the bus I had to add a sweater and throw a blanket over my legs. I thought it might just have been on the bus but when we stopped for a bathroom break it was quite cool outside. Since they did construction all night at the building next door, I didn't sleep well so I ...

    Labrang Monastery - a taste of Tibet

    ... giant Buddha figures. The youngest monks are just little boys and they giggle selfconsciously as we walk by, the older ones have become used to ignoring intruders.

    Yak butter lamps burn in front of photographs of high-up Lamas. Our Tibetan guide explains who each one of these Lamas is, but does not give us any information about things we would like to have known, such as the daily routine of the monastery, the significance of the different Buddha statues and so ...
