Welcome to Sakya


In recent years Sakya has transformed from a village into a town and the area around the monastery has been developed by a private company to include a huge parking lot and a hefty entry fee, but Sakya still feels off the grid.

The town is southwest of Shigatse, about 25km off the Southern Friendship Hwy, accessed via a half-paved road through a pretty farming valley.
