This Tibetan Buddhist monastery is located on the plateau at an elevation of 4 kilometers. It has the largest number of nuns in the world who are living here and practicing in the most primitive way.In the coldest days every year, the nuns practice the Retreat in the tiny cabin on the hillsides for 100 days. There will be divination before the Tibetan New Year, to deal with unusual questions. Buddhist scripts class up to 6 months. In the pith room, the conversations between nuns and guru are full of oriental wisdom. In the Sky Burial place, those dark red robes of nuns were like flying butterflies while burning. However, since the summer of 2019, a lot of nuns had to go back to their hometowns.
