Welcome to Tongren
Tongren (同仁, Tóngrén; Rebkong in Tibetan) is set on the slopes of the wide and fertile Gu-chu river valley. For several centuries now, the villages outside the monastery town of Tongren have been famous for producing some of the Tibetan world’s best thangkas (scroll paintings) and painted statues, so much so that an entire school of Tibetan art is named after the town. Visiting Wútún Sì monastery not only gives you a chance to meet the artists, but also to purchase a painting or two, fresh off the easel.
