Approximately 20km away from Seda Country center, in the Ganzi Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture, Sichuan Province, Seda Larong Wuming Tibetan Buddhist Institute hides itself in the serene, verdant Larong Valley – under the blue sky, thousands of maroon wooden houses embrace several splendid golden palaces and stretch to the hilltops with the waving prayer flags.

Apparently, it’s a remote place and hard to access – blocked by snow mountains, extreme altitude of over 4000m, bitterly cold climate and rough mountain roads - but worth all the efforts to get there (you can take a bus from Chengdu to Seda). The landscape is shockingly beautiful and appealing. The monks and nuns in garnet red robes walking through the monasteries and streets are smiling friendly.
