Sleeping

There is a crowded strip of businesses just outside the monastery, but better options with wi-fi and 24-hour hot water overlook the walking street (步行街; Bùxíngjiē) in Sèdá Xiàn (色达县), 20km northwest. Zàngyuán Bīngguān has a fantastic Tibetan teahouse downstairs. A gaggle of friendly ladies keep Shūshì Bīngguǎn particularly tidy. Your hotel may ask you to register in person at the PSB (公安局; Gōng'ānjú) on one end of the walking street.
