As I already mentioned under my Ganden Tip, the most spectacular things you can do at Ganden is the HIGH Kora which climbs up the peak on the left side for quite some additional meters, which make it close to 5.000m! From the top you have a great surrounding panorama down on the monastery and further down into the different valleys on the sides! On the top of the mountain, there were even vultures flying so close over the peak that I could hear the sound of the wind under their wings.

There is also a LOW Kora to do, but it is not as spectacular as the high one.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
