“The first time I arrived at the Larungar. I couldn’t believe my eyes! It has the world’s biggest Buddhist school called the Larung Gar Buddhist Academy and also inhabits over 40,000 monks and nuns. Despite it took me over 20 hours from Chengdu to getting there, it is the most impressive trip in my life.”
