Welcome to Dege

While for now the road still climbs a rough dirt track over the 5050m-high Chola Pass, soon even this last hurdle to access will be circumvented by a tunnel scheduled to be finished in mid-2017.

Unless you’ve secured the rare permit to enter the Chamdo Prefecture of Tibet proper (西藏; Xīzàng), the main reason to make the arduous trek out here is to see Dégé’s famous printing monastery, one of this region’s premier sights.
