A small potala palace. Very different from other lamaseries. They have refined mural paintings and statues. Half price for students and +60 yrs.

Splendid. ..majestic. ..peaceful. ..must go!!! 2h drive from Hohhot. Bring your own food and spend at least some hours. We were there in a sunny, cold Autumn weekday ( -5C). Very kind Buddhist Monks around, two of them speaking English. Heaven on Earth.

This is very much off the beaten track and there are no tour guides or literature in English, but it is a little but of Tibetan architechture in Inner Mongolia.

A Tibetan-style Lamasery in the mountains North of Baotou, this must be one of the best sites to visit in the region. The road is rough and full of unpleasantly noxious lorries, but the Lamasery is worth the trip - around 2 hours from Baotou.

It is the biggest and the best preserved lamastery in Inner Mongolia's Autonomous Region. 'Bada Gele Monastery' is its Tibetan name, meaning white lotus. 'Wudangzhao' in Mongolian means 'willow'. Willows are prosperous in the valley,... More
