View of Mt Mitzuga from Muli monastery, 1994

mitzuga, originally uploaded by jiulong.

This is the same view as the one above, of the mountain that towers over the Muli monastery and the Litang river valley.

Only a few buildings remain of this former lama city. Where once there were dwellings for more than 700 monks, now there are a couple of buildings to house and service the needs of one tenth that number. The trees have been hacked down, and so have the buildings of Muli.

For a view of the complete Muli monastery complex see the pictures further down this blog.
