Those looking to get a small taste of the spectacle of Buddhist village life can do so at Pelyul Gompa, a monastery encircled by a swath of small white houses clinging to the mountainside above the modern town of Báiyù (白玉) on the narrow floor of the gorge below. From the top of a large white stupa on the edge of the modern settlement, a panorama of gleaming monasteries and bright white houses opens up above.
