Inside Shuhe there is a Tibetan monastery, though supposedly you're only allowed in part of it- I guess unless you're part of a tour or something... pretty lame. Whatever the case, the endless stretch of prayer wheels sits in front of an odd scene- a glass window with chairs in it that look out on the courtyard- maybe for drinking tea, maybe for massage, I don't know. Anyway, they have decent bathrooms!

Five images.
