Lonely Planet review
On the Gānsù side, higher up the hill, is this smaller monastery with its golden- and silver-roofed halls. The monastery dates from 1748 and is also simply referred to as Gānsù Monastery. Views are lovely from here. Like its cousin across the border in Sìchuān, the monastery is best visited in the morning (7am to 8am and 10.30am to 1pm) and late afternoon (6pm to 8pm).
