Larung Gar the home to 40 000 monks in photos.

Larung Gar in western Sichuan, China is the world’s biggest Tibetan institute anywhere in the world with more than 40.000 Monks and Nuns.

This is a follow-up post to my main post “Larung Gar, Home to 40.000 Monks and Nuns“. You will find all the information you need about Larung Gar in the other post, how to get there, where it is, where to stay etc. This post is a pure photo post since a lot of people have been asking me if I had more photos that I could publish from the place.

Larung Gar has since June 2016 been closed for all foreigners. And there´s no news when it will open again. It might open next week, or it might never open for foreigners again, just have to wait and hope for the best.

Housing Units in Larung Gar, I would never be able to find my house here.
