Gedan Songzanlin Monastery (Guihua Sumtseling Monastery), Shangri-la
- Songzanlin Monastery is located 5 km north of Shangri-La County. It is convenient to transfer from Shangri-La Dukezong Old Town to the monastery. Travelers can take No.3 Bus at the front of Moonlight Square with 30 minutes to Songzanlin Monastery.
- You can get there by biking (20 minutes) or by walking (about 1 hour).
- Many minivans are available at Moonlight Square that travelers can hire a van to go there. You need to discuss the price with the drivers before you get on the van.
- As for me, I signed up for a tour together with the Shika Snow Mountain which just cost me CNY300/pax including transfer and entrance fee. I find this is the cheapest and the most convenient way.
|Along the way to the monastery, you will see the locals selling their yak yogurt. Do try their original locally flavor yogurt. From her face, you should know that how it is taste like. Yummy!|
Opening Hours: 8.00am - 6.00pm
