"Pilgrims Walk" Xiahe Things to Do Tip by Ingalotta

Xiahe Things to Do: 31 reviews and 36 photos


Around the monastry of Labrang ist this 3 km pilgrim walk. You can walk with dozens of Tibetans along it and turn hundreds of colourfull praying wheels.
The setting is great, but much better than that was getting in touch with the local people. I'll never forget these three elderly ladies, sitting next to me near the prayerwheels, offering me some of their food and being absolutly amazed that I have 5 toes on eacht foot as well as they do... at least that's what i guessed, they were saying, as they were counting my toes and afterwards showing me the number 5 with their fingers.
