Mindroling Incense Factory

Factory in Mindroling

After a visit to Mindroling Monastery it's worth popping into this traditional factory just off the parking lot. Tibetan workers split fragrant logs and machines pulp, mix and press the juniper and other herbs into incense sticks. Bundles of the incense are available for purchase at a shop beside the parking lot in large (¥40) and small (¥20) boxes.
