A small potala palace. Very different from other lamaseries. They have refined mural paintings and statues. Half price for students and +60 yrs.

The facilities and staff are Very accommodating!,...and if you are curious traveler,...you WILL BE REWARDED with many sights and sounds of the treasures of the region, as well as the cultures. Be casual, and look for even the smallest details of ancient buildings, structures and things "gone-by" from Chinese and Mongolian (Buddhist) cultures. EVERYTHING is quite worth the investment of...

Splendid. ..majestic. ..peaceful. ..must go!!! 2h drive from Hohhot. Bring your own food and spend at least some hours. We were there in a sunny, cold Autumn weekday ( -5C). Very kind Buddhist Monks around, two of them speaking English. Heaven on Earth.

Initially, I was very reluctant to come here as it is quite far away. Our inner Mongolian friend was returning us a favor so he insisted on bringing us here. He had hired a group of monks to do a special blessing for our family. Watching all the ceremony and chanting was quite interesting. I was told that this is... More

This is very much off the beaten track and there are no tour guides or literature in English, but it is a little but of Tibetan architechture in Inner Mongolia. While Hohhot, the capital of Inner Mongolia is a few hundred km away, the lamasery on the slope of the mountains is entirely Mongolian while here it was Tibetan!

A Tibetan-style Lamasery in the mountains North of Baotou, this must be one of the best sites to visit in the region. The road is rough and full of unpleasantly noxious lorries, but the Lamasery is worth the trip - around 2 hours from Baotou. We employed the services of an excellent local guide, Chaolu, who also provided a driver... More

70 kilometers (approx. 43 miles) northeast of Baotou, near a valley named Wudang Gou, lies the Wudangzhao Monastery which is a large Tibetan Buddhist monastery. It is the biggest and the best preserved lamastery in Inner Mongolia's Autonomous Region. 'Bada Gele Monastery' is its Tibetan name, meaning white lotus. 'Wudangzhao' in Mongolian means 'willow'. Willows are prosperous in the valley,... More
