What people are saying:

Just a tip. There is an English speaking tour guide that sets off from the tour guide office at 10.15 every day. At the moment it is free but not sure about later. having a guide makes all the difference to understand how the monastery works.overall worth a visit if in this area of Gansu or North Sichuan province, but not worth making a special trip for

Introduction

Located in Gannan District's Xiahe County, Labrang Monastery is one of the six great monasteries of the Gelug (Yellow) Sect of Tibetan Buddhism. The monastery is large in scale and high in status. A representative example of the monasteries and temples throughout Gannan, it is a must-see for visitors to the area. It is a majestic temple complex. It offers spectacular sights while walking through and also when taking in a panoramic bird's-eye view from its highest point. The monastery is full of giant Buddha statues and various exquisite sculptures, murals and countless musical instruments. Furthermore, the long corridor of the Labrang Monastery is a sight rarely seen anywhere else in the world.
