Introducing Mǎnígāngē (Manigango)

There’s not much going on in Mǎnígāngē (Manigango), a rough two-street transit town halfway between Gānzī and Dégé. The surrounding hills do offer wonderful hiking opportunities, though. The vast monastery and school, Dzogchen Gompa (竹庆寺; Zhú Qìng Sì) an important seat of the Nyingma (Red Hat sect), is also within striking distance, on the road north to Yùshù.
