Kora of Ganden Monastery - Lhasa, Tibet

Kora of Ganden Monastery

Thanks Kim Bannister for this favorite place.

This is one of the most beautiful walks near Lhasa, a lovely drive through green countryside and traditional villages to get to Ganden and away from the tourists who go to see only the monastery. I once saw a sky burial from afar from the Kora (circuit), and always come into contact with the most colorful and friendly pilgrims while doing the half-hour Kora. The views of the checkered fields from the hill are wonderful, with rivers cutting their way through the valleys and mountains providing the backdrop
