It was seven in the morning, and the town was gradually indulged into the breakfast smoke. The stupa in the middle is Kirti Monastery, and the little green tower to the left belongs to a mosque. Beyond lies the holy mountain and holy forest.
Langmusi (Tatsang Lhamo in Tibetan) is a lovely little Tibetan town of the Amdo prefecture, on the border of Sichuan and Gansu provinces. Populates only about 5,000, Langmusi proudly boasts two major monasteries, a mosque and a functioning sky burial ground, all situated in a breathtaking canvas. It has one major street and a rushing creek running through the town center. To the north of the creek is the Sertri Monastery in Gansu; to the south the Kirti Monastery in Sichuan.
