Tashilhunpo Monastery - the traditional seat of the Panchen Lama

Tashilhunpo Monastery, one of the four great monasteries of Tibet, has the distinct glory of producing the most scholarly Tibetan monks, no less so than the Panchen Lama, the most revered incarnation for Tibetan Buddhists after the Dalai Lama. Here you’ll be steeped in the spiritual; though it might not seem possible at first, Tashilhunpo is perhaps where the palpably spiritual is most prevalent in Tibet. Draw in deep the cool alpine air and soak up thousands of years of contemplation and Buddhist scholarship.
