Welcome to Ganzi
It’s easy to spend a couple of days in the lively market town of Ganzi (甘孜, Gānzī; Garzê) exploring the beautiful countryside, which is scattered with Tibetan villages and large monasteries surrounded by snowcapped mountains. The fast-growing city itself is home to some large and busy monasteries and interesting markets full of cordyceps (a half-caterpillar, half-fungus that's gathered in nearby grasslands and used in the rest of China as a general energy booster and retails for outrageous sums of money) dealers and small shops stacked with prayer wheels and monks' clothing.
